At Zillmere Vet Surgery we have state of the art dental equipment, enabling us to perform a wide range of dental procedures. Dogs and cats can't brush their teeth like humans can, and as a result it is up to us to brush them for them! However, it is often hard to maintain an everyday regime, and as a result, many dogs and cats need to have their teeth cleaned and polished with an ultra-sonic scaler. Bad breath and red gums not only don't smell very nice but can also be very painful. Along with teeth clean and polishing, we can also perform tooth extractions and minor oral surgery. Our Lead Vet, Karen, has completed her membership examinations in Small Animal Dentistry and Oral Surgery allowing us to expand our dental services into endodontics.
Dental disease is one of the primary causes of damage to the heart, liver and kidneys. The best way to prevent this is to keep your pets chompers nice and clean. If you would like to discuss dental care, prevention and cleaning further, please don't hesitate to give us a call for a FREE dental check!
