What dental treatments are available for pets?

At Greenmount Veterinary Clinic we will examine your pets teeth and gums and make recommendations for treatments, either at the surgery or at home. If your pet already has evidence of periodontal disease, a professional cleaning at the surgery is required:

Professional Dental Treatments:

After a full clinical examination your pet will require a General anaesthetic, see section on anaesthesia.

Once your pet is under anaesthesia, accumulated tartar and calculus is removed by Ultrasonic Descaling. Any teeth which are severely diseased can be extracted. Finally the teeth are polished to slow down formation of new plaque, tartar, and calculus.

Good Dental Care at Home:

For cats and dogs, regular brushing is an important part of any preventive dental program. A special toothbrush and toothpaste for pets are recommended. Chlorhexidine mouth washes for cats can also help control plaque decreasing eventual odour.

We can show you the proper way to brush your pet's teeth.

Feeding your pet coarse-textured dry food may help prevent accumulation of plaque, tartar, and calculus. Advice is available from our nurses as to the best diet for your pet, and good home dental care

We advise that you return to your Veterinary Surgeon for

regular dental check- ups every 6 to 18 months.
