Dental disease is one of the commonest problems seen in our pets. 80% of cats and dogs over the age of 5 years will have some degree of dental problem. Home care is very important in the prevention of dental disease. Most important is tooth brushing. A pet or human toothbrush can be used but a pet toothpaste must be used as human pastes can cause gastrointestinal upsets. Rawhide strips and other dental chews are also useful. Also available is a special prescription only diet called Hills t/d that can be fed as a complete and balanced diet and is clinically proven to reduce plaque and tartar build up. When dental disease gets to a certain stage, however, home care is not adequate and professional veterinary care is required. This invariably involves an anaesthetic for both patient safety and comfort. Scaling and polishing +/- removing diseased teeth dramatically improves oral health but post dental homecare is equally as important. If you feel your pet may have a problem with his/her teeth or just has plain bad breath then our vets and nurses will be happy to advise you.
