Did you know that 80% of pets have some form of dental disease? If your pet is showing symptoms like bad breath, this could indicate dental problems or infection.
Sometimes, a dental treat or diet won't work for their specific needs.
Avoid an expensive dental procedure down the line and get a free dental check-up for your pet from one of our experienced veterinarian nurses today.
Our vet nurses can help ensure your pet's teeth and gums stay healthy and clean as well as provide advice, free of charge, on preventative dental measures that will save you effort and money in the long-term.
Our free dental check includes a conscious assessment of your pets teeth, gums and mouth by one of our qualified vet team members. You will be provided with a dental care plan for maintaining healthy teeth or a treatment plan if dental work is required.
We perform all our dental cleaning procedures under a general anaesthetic which requires your pet to fast prior and stay with us for the day, so cannot be done in the consult. We can usually fit your pet in for their procedure within the week.
For large dogs, big raw bones are best with chicken wings a great alternative for cats and small dogs. It is important to only give raw bones, as cooked bones may splinter and cause oral or intestinal injury.
As with raw bones, you should ensure that they (or any meat product) are fresh, and that care is taken with marrow bones as they can be very rich and fatty.
Dental treats are excellent for helping keep teeth clean by mechanically removing plaque and preventing tartar and plaque formation. Dental treats include:
Or, you can keep your buddy’s teeth clean with the Tropiclean dental range.
For rabbits and rodents, whose teeth keep growing throughout their life, Ware Wooden Vegetable Chews contribute to both dental maintenance and environmental enrichment and entertainment.
Absolutely! Just let us know how many pets you’ll be bringing in when making your appointment.
We do not offer or recommend anaesthesia free dentistry for the safety of the pet and due to the inefficacy of the procedure.
It is recommended to feed your buddy a dry food daily to provide their teeth with regular cleaning as they chew the pellets.
If your buddy has dental issues, they can be fed specialised oral care (Royal Canin and Hill’s Science Diet) or dental diets (Royal Canin Dental Diet, Hill’s Science Diet T/D).
These diets are specially formulated to combat plaque and tartar, and the individual kibbles are larger than standard dry food biscuits to scrub your pet’s teeth clean by chewing.
If you think your buddy would benefit from a specialised dental diet, we recommend speaking with your vet.
