Maintaining good oral hygiene is the route to good overall health. Periodontal disease is known to exacerbate or perpetuate other diseases that may be pre-existing. Periodontal disease can also go on for a long time without being detected. Even mild oral disease can be a source of chronic discomfort in your pet’s mouth. What we fail to recognize as pet owners is that, unlike their human counterparts who display pain very obviously, animals will continue to display normal behaviour and appetite despite having significant oral pain. It’s a matter of natural survival instincts, eat or else get weak and be eaten.
All of our dental cleanings and procedures are performed under anaesthesia for the comfort of your pet and to allow a thorough examination and treatment of any disease that may be present.
Book your appointment today so one of our veterinarians can perform a thorough oral exam and determine if your pet would benefit from a dental treatment.
