The condition of your pet’s teeth is vitally important to their overall wellness and well-being and one that is most often neglected and devalued.

Periodontal disease is the single most frequent clinical ailment that affects adult dogs and cats, and it can typically be avoided via proper dental care. By the time they are three years old, the majority of dogs and cats already show some signs of periodontal disease. However, apart from bad breath, only a few indicators of the illness are usually noticeable to the owners. This can include bleeding gums, tooth loss and difficulty eating. Expert dental cleansing and periodontal treatment sometimes arrive too late to avoid significant illness or to save molars.

Bad breath is the most obvious symptom of periodontal disease. As a consequence of this, dental illness is typically undertreated, which can lead to a variety of issues within the mouth cavity and in certain cases, may even be related to harm to the patient’s organs. An examination by a veterinarian may reveal the need for further dental treatment such as cleansing, polishing, prosthodontics, or perhaps just a modification in diet.

Our medical facility is well-equipped to do any and all dental procedures that may be necessary. Consider that if your pet’s teeth and gums are strong, not only will they function better, but they’ll possibly also live longer. Because we want to reduce the risk of major diseases, dental homecare is essential for maintaining overall health. Brushing your teeth is the most effective way to care for your teeth; but, if you are unable to do so, Vets at North Rocks offers a variety of different solutions that may be of assistance.

We highly recommend that these patients get pre-anaesthesia blood tests to rule out any potential problems. The anaesthetic procedure for each patient is tailored to their specific needs after a comprehensive physical examination has been performed. Sedatives and painkillers are administered before anaesthesia. An intravenous catheter is inserted into each patient, and the gas anaesthetic is continued for the duration of their stay. In order to keep the patient hydrated, intravenous fluids are given while they are operating. During anaesthesia, vital signs such hypertension, pulse rate, oxygen levels in the blood, breathing, and body temperature are continuously recorded. Your vet will discuss ongoing treatment and care to ensure that your pet’s teeth and gums remain healthy.

Dental check-ups can be done at your regular yearly check-up unless recommended otherwise by your vet or if you suspect a problem. Speak to us about various ways of taking care of your pet’s teeth for long term health.
