Dental disease affects a significant percentage of pets over the age of three. Studies suggest that about 75%-80% of such dogs and cats suffer from varying degrees of gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) or periodontal disease (calculus or tartar).
While our pets might not show signs of pain or discomfort at the time when dental disease is less advanced, it has been clinically established that poor oral health is associated with general health issues affecting the kidney, heart and metabolic systems. Therefore the maintenance of oral health in our small animal patient is an integral component of their overall well being.
At Lynbrook vet we are trained and equipped to perform all routine dentistry procedures such as dental scale and polishes, extractions and treatment of dental abscesses etc. We also provide advise for the maintenance of oral health long into the future.
Please contact the clinic to arrange a dental check for your pet. Call us on 03 8373 0301.
