Dental Clinic

Dental disease is now a very common problem in our companion animals; more than 80% of our companion pets over 3 years of age will have some kind of dental disorder. A build up of tartar on your pets teeth can harbour bacteria with in turn can cause a very painful infection of the gums known as gingivitis and if left untreated the result can be lose of teeth.
The Bacteria involved in gum disease can also potentially cause serious systemic disease, by entering the bloodstream this allows spread to vital organs resulting in serious heart, kidney, liver or lung disease.
We therefore believe that maintaining a healthy smile is hugely important preventative step in helping to maintain a happy and healthy pet.
