CLOSEST CLINIC WAIHI

Dentistry

At Pet Doctors we believe your pet’s teeth are just as important as ours, so we encourage annual dental checks for all of our clients, which include a range of standard dental services such as routine cleaning and other procedures including dental surgery.

Dental problems are the number one issue that we see in pets. After every meal, a layer of invisible plaque develops on teeth, which in time can become tartar – the yellow/brown staining that you can often see on affected teeth. This provides an ideal environment for bacteria to grow which can loosen the ligament holding the teeth in place, leading to loss of teeth. The bacterial infection around the teeth can also spread into the blood stream and affect heart and liver health.

At Pet Doctors we have a range of facilities to help diagnose, treat and prevent dental disease in your pet.

Our dental facilities include:
- Scaling and polishing equipment
- High speed handpieces for extraction of problem teeth
- Dental x-rays
- Oral surgery equipment
- Dental referral service
- A range of products to help with maintaining dental health including dental chew toys, dental diets and pet toothbrushes
