PICS - Imaging the way to your pet's heart
Dental disease in cats, dogs & rabbits is one of the most common conditions we see each day. Just like us, maintaining that smile requires regular care.
Dental disease often goes unnoticed for sometime and bad breath is commonly the first sign. Other signs of dental problems includes - yellow brown tartar on teeth, drooling, tooth loss, pawing at the mouth, bleeding gums, reluctance to chew or play with toys. Most pets will continue to eat despite devastating dental disease until they are so depressed they would rather starve. Their survival instinct is so strong, it masks serious disease.
Most cats and dogs will require some dental treatment by the vet at some stage in their lives. Roughly 80% of cats & dogs would benefit from a dental with the vet.
Pets should have their teeth checked by the vet at least once a year to pick up disease.
A large proportion of dental disease will lie under the gumline in the roots. This is why we recommend all dentals at our centre have full mouth dental x-rays performed with our state of the art digital dental x-ray machine. This allows the vet to plan extractions, know how many roots your individual pet has and decrease the risk of major complications.
Our centre incorporates an equipped dental facility offering scaling, polishing, extractions, radiology & preventative care. If you are concerned about your pet’s dental health please book an appointment with our vets for a thorough dental exam and treatment plan.
After care is just as important- We stock a wide range of dental care products to maintain those teeth after their scale and polish.Feel free to ask our trained nurses for advice on the best products.
