Dental disease of varying severity is likely to affect your pet at some point in their life. Dental pain can often go unnoticed for quite some time & is likely to influence their wellbeing & overall health. Preventative care & early recognition can aid in slowing its progression as well as limiting the need for dental procedures.

Symptoms of dental disease

  • Bad breath
  • Difficulty chewing or refusing food
  • Excessive salivation (drooling)
  • Tartar/ plaque build-up on teeth
  • Inflamed gums

At MVC we offer dental examinations to identify those in need of dental procedures. Dental procedures include a general anaesthetic & depending on the severity of disease, a scale & polish, dental radiographs & if required extractions of diseased teeth. Should extractions be required, we make use of various anaesthetics, analgesics & nerve blocks to ensure your pet is as comfortable as possible.
