When your four-legged furry friend lunges for a big hug, does the smell of their breath knock you flat on your back? If this is true it's time for a dental checkup. A dental check up may highlight the need for cleaning, polishing, tooth extraction or even orthodontic or endodontic work.
A high percentage of ageing pets suffer from some degree of periodontal disease. This is a condition in which bacteria attack the gum tissue causing a foul odour, yellowish brown crusts of tartar around the gum line and even pain and bleeding when your pet eats or you touch its gums. Our veterinarians will be able to advise the best course of action for your pet.
