Dental disease in dogs, cats and rabbits is very common and regular checks (e.g. at the yearly vaccination) will identify the start of any possible teeth and gum problems.

It is not unusual for dogs and cats to need a general anaesthetic in order to have their teeth descaled and polished and any decaying teeth extracted. Rabbit can be very prone to dental problems as their teeth grow continuously and, as a consequence, may need regular dental treatment.

Apart from the fact that toothache can be very painful, attending to dental problems sooner rather than later will help to prevent extensive dental surgery and possibly several extractions later on when you pet is older.

After pets have had their teeth cleaned, most owners will notice their pet happier, eating well once again and they should no longer have smelly breath!
