This is one of our most commonly provided services. We have a modern specialised dental machine including ultrasonic descaler, compressed air drill, burr, polisher, rinser and suction device - just like your dentist's chair on a smaller scale!
Our fully trained veterinary nurses and vets provide a comprehensive dental service adminstered under full anaesthesia. Most commonly, this includes a 'descale and polish' service, where your pet's teeth are ultrasonically cleaned, then polished. If necessary teeth and/or tooth roots, can be extracted with minimal trauma to your pet.
Maintaining good dental hygiene is an integral part of your pet's well-being, and this service enables us to easily and professionally assist with that aim. Our equipment and skill levels are constantly being upgraded or updated. We also provide a comprehensive advisory service on ways to maintain your pet's oral health, along with free samples of dental care diets etc.
