Early diagnosis and treatment can add years to your pet’s life.
We now know that poor dental hygiene not only causes discomfort in the mouth, halitosis (bad breath) and loss of teeth it can also cause severe disease elsewhere in the body due to entry of harmful bacterial from the mouth into the bloodstream.
This progresses to gum recession and loss of bone surrounding the tooth with the end result being loss of the tooth itself.
Cats in particular also suffer from erosions in the tooth enamel which are much harder to spot but can cause severe pain.
If you recognise any of these symptoms contact us for a dental health checkup and treatment plan. We have modern IM3 dental equipment (just like your dentist has) allowing us to perform a simple scale and polish or the surgical extraction of large teeth.
Early intervention will keep your pet’s teeth clean and healthy and may significantly extend their lifespan.
To book a dental health checkup just call us today on 09 479 7282 or email us on email@example.com and we are happy to discuss your options in more detail with you.
