Dental care for your pet
Did you know a staggering 80% of pets over the age of three years old have dental disease that needs treating now?
Untreated and progressive periodontal disease can lead to systemic effects on other parts of their body, including the liver, kidneys, cardiovascular system, and lungs. It can also be very painful and affect your pet’s quality of life. To protect your pet’s overall health, prevention and early treatment are key.
Home care, as well as professional dental checkups at our veterinary practice, should form part of your pet’s overall preventative healthcare routine. At AllPets Vets, we can help you with both of these. Plus, we have invested heavily in the latest dental equipment and offer a full range of routine dental procedures.
Signs of oral health problems in pets
Many pets won’t show when they’re in pain so it’s important to check their teeth and gums at home regularly.
- Exceptionally bad breath
- A build-up of plaque and tartar on the teeth
- Red, swollen, bleeding gums
- Broken or misaligned teeth
- Holes in teeth – typically with cats
- Overgrown teeth in rabbits
- Change in appetite and difficulty eating
- Your pet won’t let you examine in or around the mouth
