Dental Care

Dental Care

Our pet dogs and cats can have teeth problems as well. At Mudgee Veterinary Hospital we can treat most of these problems.

SIGNS OF DENTAL DISEASE

Bad breath, dribbling, pain when eating or reluctance to eat, swollen areas around the teeth are all signs of a problem. If you have a look in the mouth you can see a brown tarter on the gum edge, red inflammed gums or missing gum and exposed tooth roots

DENTAL OPERATIONS

Most proceedures will require a general anaesthetic. Simple proceedures such as a teeth clean include removal of tarter with our ultrasonic scaler and a high speed polish.

More involved proceedures include extractions. Our high speed burrs allow easier and  less traumatic teeth removal.

PREVENTION

The old saying "Prevention is better than cure", this certainly apply to dental care. Dogs and cats that work their teeth on bones and harder busicuits generally have better teeth than pets on wet canned food.

If you pet can have meal with a bone this will assist in keeping cleaner and healthier teeth. Chicken wings and neck are fine for cats and small dogs. Your pet can spend hours eating and chewing these bones. This helps keep the gums and teeth healthy.
