–plaque and tartar build-up
–reddened, sore or bleeding gums
–difficulty chewing…..If yes, then they may be suffering from dental disease!
Maclean and Yamba Vets provide the highest quality dental care. Under a general anaesthetic, your pet’s teeth are thoroughly examined, and whole mouth radiographs are taken to identify disease below the gums that would otherwise go unnoticed. Scaling removes plaque and tartar from the teeth and below the gum line, then any diseased teeth are surgically removed and all teeth polished. After the procedure, our staff will work with you to implement home care to reduce the recurrence of disease.
Around 80% of our pets have some form of dental disease by the age of four (which is 32 dog years). Often these signs can go un-noticed and owners are not aware that their pet has dental disease, and we can leave our pets suffering in silence.
