Going to the dentist is just as important as going to the doctor, and pet dental health is crucial for your pet’s health and quality of life. Unfortunately, gum disease affects about 85% of dogs and cats, and if untreated, is a primary cause for smelly breath and can cause your pet discomfort. At the Ark we recognise the importance of pet dental health in a happy and healthy pet, and our vets and nurses are trained to assess and treat their dental health.
We offer a range of pet dental treatments including:
- Consults to grade your pet’s oral health
- X-rays to identify and assess compromised teeth
- Tooth extraction
- Free dental health check
Pet dental procedures
All dental procedures are performed with human grade dental equipment so your pet can come home with sparkly pearly whites, and the practise is equipped to extract any damaged teeth to reduce your pet’s discomfort. Good home dental care can prevent further damage and the need for future surgery, and our nurses at the Ark can provide you with recommendations to keep your pet’s teeth clean and healthy after their treatment, and we also stock a variety of specialised food and cleaning products to help you with this at home.
