Animal Dental care in an important part of looking after your pet’s health, as bad dental care can lead to more serious problems.
Effective animal dentistry focuses on the health of your pet's teeth and gums. Most dogs and cats develop plaque and calculus on their teeth which then leads to gingivitis (inflamed and infected gums). The plaque and calculus is
made from food, bacteria and salts in saliva.
Unfortunately, most commercial pet foods contribute to this problem because they are soft and do not abrade the teeth. The infection in the gums can spread to other parts of the body and may cause kidney and heart disease.
Vet, teeth cleaning involves the use of ultrasonic scalers, subgingival curetting
and polishing followed by home care advice to minimise future plaque development.
