It’s hard to believe that more than 80% of dog patients over three years of age have some form of dental disease.
Regular vet checks will help to identify any development of periodontal disease and your local Greencross veterinarian can also discuss the best management plan for your pet.
Dental disease is very common amongst our canine companions and if left untreated can lead to heart, liver and kidney problems. Sometimes veterinary treatment is required to assist with their plaque and tartar build-up.
A dental scale and polish procedure involves a general anaesthetic and a full dental examination, including charting and scaling, both ultrasonically and by hand, and then finishing with a polish.
Just like your own dentist, we use specialised instruments to ensure your dog is safe and comfortable throughout the procedure.
Healthy Pets Plus Members can visit their local clinic for unlimited pet dental checks, as well as $200 off a dental scale and polish procedure (valid once per membership year).
