What can happen if my pet's teeth aren't cleaned?
Without proper care, your pet will not only have bad breath, but also is at risk of periodontal disease, abscesses, and other common tooth and mouth problems. Both plaque and tartar can build up and damage the teeth and gums. Disease starts with the gums (gingiva). They become - red, swollen and sore. The gums finally separate from the teeth, creating pockets where more bacteria, plaque and tartar build up. This will then cause more damage and finally tooth and bone loss. Dental disease can affect the whole body too. Bacteria from these inflamed oral areas can enter the bloodstream and affect major body organs. The liver, kidneys, heart and lungs are most commonly affected. For more information please call the practice.
We have up to date dental facilities to enable us to carry out a high standard of care and treatment for all your pets dental needs including rabbits, guinea pigs and chinchillas. All our dental procedures are performed by a fully qualified Veterinary Surgeon and the anaesthesia monitored by a fully qualified Veterinary Nurse.
