Recent studies have shown that 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease. Bad breath, plaque build-up, excessive drooling, sore or bleeding gums when eating or chewing, and decreased appetite are signs that your furbaby’s teeth may require veterinary attention.

The average cat or dog needs a scale and polish every 18 months! Some even need it every year! We perform dental scaling and polishing on a routine basis. If necessary, we also perform tooth extractions. Because a full general anaesthetic is involved with dentals, we perform pre-anaesthetic blood tests to ensure your companion is healthy enough for surgery. After the procedure, we’ll provide you with a post-op plan on how to take care of your companion’s oral health moving forward.

Prevent the plaque build up by brushing teeth daily and feeding them prescription dental food. Prevention works the best when started early to maintain the clean teeth.

Dental disease can be prevented by being diligent about your furbaby’s oral health. In addition to wellness exams and routine dental cleanings at My Vet Animal Hospital, home care is so important.
