Dental disease is one of the most common diseases in cats and dogs. Not only is dental disease painful for your pet, but the increased bacteria in their mouth can be associated with other conditions such as kidney disease, heart disease, and liver disease. Statistics show that 4 out of 5 cats and dogs develop some level of dental disease by the age of 3.
How do I know if my pet has dental disease?
Watch out for:
- smelly breath
- dropping food from their mouth
- Loose teeth
- Bleeding from the gums
- Not chewing their food
What does dentistry involve at Grange Veterinary Clinic?
Cats and dogs in Adelaide and surrounds can rest easy knowing that we have their dental health as a top priority!
The Vet will assess your pets teeth to the best of his abilities in all general health checks.
Unfortunately, we can’t ask your pet to “open wide” – so dogs and cats with dental disease need a general anaesthetic to allow us to assess their teeth and clean thoroughly under the gum line. Severely diseased teeth are potentially very painful so usually require removal to prevent future problems.
