Dental Care

Your pets teeth need to be cared for just like your own and a trip to the Vet once a year is the best way to ensure they're in tip top shape. Poorly cared for teeth and gums can cause your pets to have annoying things like bad breath but also more serious issues like pain and discomfort when eating and organ damage from the nasty toxins that bad oral care produces. A dental check is part of your regular consultation and any dental treatment required will be determined at this time.
