Looking after your pet's teeth
From teeth cleaning to a scale and polish...
Most of us know the importance of good dental hygiene for ourselves, but often our pets don’t get quite as much attention. However, it is important to care for your pet’s teeth as problems can lead to a number of different health issues. Keep an eye out for bad teeth or infected gums, and always contact Vets4Pets if you have any concerns.
Why should I get my cat's teeth checked?
If your cat’s mouth is sore and it is reluctant to eat, it can soon start losing weight. And once bacteria from the teeth and gums enter the blood, it can result in liver, kidney or heart disease and a reduced life expectancy.
Why should I get my dog's teeth checked?
Your dog’s teeth have a tough job to do, and if they are not looked after, they can soon start to cause problems. If plaque and tartar build up, bacteria can begin to make a home in your dog’s mouth leading to smelly breath, infected gums, and even damage to your pet’s internal organs.
