It is imperative that your pet receives regular dental health checks. This is generally done during a vaccination appointment, or you are welcome to book in a standalone dental check if you notice any of the above symptoms showing.
Due the nature of dental procedures, one of our Veterinarians must perform the dental check before your pet can be booked in. The severity of dental disease can vary so widely among each individual patient, so we need to know what to expect before starting the procedure; for example, your pet may need to go on pre-emptive antibiotics or have blood tests done too.
During a dental check, the Veterinarian will grade your pet’s teeth and gums, and, if applicable, recommend a dental procedure. Moving forward, our friendly staff will generate an estimate based on the clinical exam findings during the health check. Things like the grade of dental disease, your pets age and health status can affect the final outcome of the estimate.
