A healthy mouth equals a healthy pet
There’s no getting around this one. If you want your pet to live a healthy life, they need to have a healthy mouth!
There is now plenty of evidence to prove that dental disease is linked to other problems such as heart disease, so it is absolutely essential we keep an eye on your pet’s oral health.
Dental disease strikes when plaque and tartar accumulate on the teeth and lead to infection of the gums. Bacteria from this infection can travel in the blood stream around the body and can impact the heart as well other organs such as the lungs and kidneys.
The good news is that many of these problems can be reversed if dental hygiene is improved – and that’s where we come in!
If we detect dental disease we will recommend a dental procedure to help remove the plaque and tartar and resolve any infection. We will also remove any diseased teeth that might be causing your pet significant pain.
Here are our top tips for preventing dental disease:
– Get your pet’s mouth checked by us. We will be able to spot problems early – this is essential to good dental care. A check at least once a year is vital.
– Get your pet eating the correct food. A premium quality dry diet is essential for good oral health. There are excellent dental diets available and they really work so ask us for the best recommendation.
– Brush your pet’s teeth. This is considered gold standard – just make sure you use a pet-safe toothpaste. Ask our friendly staff to show you our dental range.
We recommend a dental check up at least once a year. Regular checks will help to protect your pet’s overall health and might just save their life!
