Gum disease is one of the most common problems we see here at Quarry Vets. If untreated it can lead to serious damage to your pet’s vital organs so it is much better to keep a check on their teeth with regular dental appointments.

The buildup of plaque and tartar on your pet’s teeth can lead to infection in the gums and roots of the teeth.

To make sure your pet’s teeth and gums remain in tip-top condition we have the equipment to carry out most dental procedures.

Scaling tartar from the teeth and polishing the surfaces will get the mouth back to almost new as long as no extractions are needed. Loose teeth and any with infected roots should be removed, as should teeth with significant feline ondontoclastic resorption lesions (FORLs) in cats.

To avoid these procedures it is important to keep your pet’s teeth clean. Brushing is the best method but many animals won’t allow their owners to do this so there are other options.

If you have concerns, make an appointment with our nurses so you can talk about the best dental care and treatment for your pet.
