Does your pet’s breath smell?

Bad breath is often a pointer to poor oral hygiene. This in turn leads to a build-up of dental plaque and tartar. The consequences of these are gum infections and tooth decay.

We are very keen to promote good preventative dental care. Our staff are trained in dental hygiene and can help you select a programme best suited to you and your pet.

We are sure that prevention is always better than cure, since severe dental disease may only be resolved with a full general anaesthetic and even extractions.

There are a number of products available to help you with prevention and control. Some of these are listed below:

  1. Dental chews.
  2. Tooth brushing.
  3. Dental gels.
  4. Special foods.

Please feel free to ask for advice on any of the above methods of dental hygiene.
