Dental Treatment For Dogs and Animal Dentistry

As pet owners, we understand how important your animal’s dental health is. Dental disease is a common issue among dogs and cats that, if left untreated, can cause severe health problems such as tartar build-up beneath the gum line, leading to tooth loss. In addition, dental disease can lead to associated diseases of the heart, liver, and kidneys.

At Rackheath Vets, our dental care services aim to provide your pet with the best possible care. Our team of experienced and compassionate veterinarians understands how sensitive your animal’s mouth is and will work with you to create a tailored dental plan that keeps their oral health in pristine condition.

Why is Dental Care so Important?

Dental disease is common among dogs, cats, rabbits, and other species. For this reason, regular check-ups with our veterinarians can help detect dental disease early on, allowing us to provide timely treatment.

Pets often don’t express pain in the same way that we do, and, therefore, dental disease may go undetected at home for prolonged periods before it’s discovered during a routine vet visit. Early detection of dental issues can help prevent more severe and potentially life-threatening problems, so ensuring your pet is well-cared for can help improve their overall well-being.

Checking Your Animal

You should regularly check your pet’s mouth and eating habits, making sure to look out for any signs of rubbing or pawing at the mouth, bad breath, or changes in eating habits such as reluctance to eat, dropping food when eating, or chewing strangely.

If you notice any of these signs, bring your animal in for a dental check-up with one of our veterinarians immediately.

At Rackheath Vets, we believe that preventative dental treatment for dogs and cats is critical in detecting and preventing common ailments in our pets. Our experienced veterinarians will work with you to create a tailored dental plan to keep your furry friend’s oral health in check.

Dental Disease

Dental disease is one of the most common diseases our dogs and cats can suffer from. Just like humans, good dental hygiene and prompt treatment of dental disease are critical in keeping our pets’ mouths healthy and pain-free.

The typical indicators of dental disease include bad breath, reddened gums, swollen gums, a yellow-brown crust of tartar surrounding the gum line, and pain when the animal eats. These indicators can lead to associated illnesses if left untreated, such as heart disease and other severe systemic issues.

At Rackheath Vets, we are committed to providing your pet with the best dental care possible. Dental treatment for dogs and cats is important to their long-term health. By scheduling routine visits with our experienced team, we can detect and treat dental disease early on and set up a plan to ensure that your pet maintains excellent oral health.

Descaling Services

Descaling is a procedure that helps to thoroughly clean your pet’s teeth above and below the gum line, where bacteria tends to accumulate. This process is usually done under general anaesthetic and requires specific dental tools to remove excess tartar and plaque.

Our pet dental experts at Rackheath Vets can assess each tooth individually and note any issues, allowing us to clean your pet’s teeth effectively. While there may be a small amount of bleeding during the process, descaling is not a painful technique, and your pet should be able to go back to eating their regular diet once they have fully woken up from the anaesthetic.

If you are worried that your pet may have dental issues or need regular dental care, our team of experienced veterinarians is here to guide you and provide tailored dental plans for your furry friend’s unique needs.
