One of the most widespread health problems among animals is the prevalence of periodontal (dental) disease. It is believed that up to 80% of dogs and 70% of cats over three years of age suffer from the condition, which can lead to halitosis (bad breath) and tooth decay, among other conditions. Dental disease can largely be avoided by maintaining your pet’s dental hygiene routine.
This can be most commonly done by brushing their teeth, but not every pet is going to respond well to that approach. If you need a qualified vet clinic to oversee cat or dog dental health and prevent the pain of an emergency extraction, contact a cat or dog dentist at Northern Suburbs Veterinary Clinics.
No longer do you need to search for a cat or dog dentist when you have Northern Suburbs Veterinary Clinics looking after your four-legged friend. Our experienced pet hospital can help you to implement and maintain a workable dental hygiene routine that prevents the onset of dental disease as well as the development and spread of dental plaque, calculus and caries. When you visit our cat and dog dentist in Watsonia or Meadow Heights, we can supply you with the necessary prescription diet food, toothpaste and brushes to increase the dental hygiene of your beloved cat or dog. We can also provide cleaning and polishing services and perform anaesthesia free tooth extractions when necessary.
Next time you book your cat or dog in for a grooming service, why not arrange a check-up for their dental health as well? We provide cat and dog dental health services both during standard business hours and after hours at our Watsonia and Meadow Heights clinics.
