Dental clinic with dogDoes your pet smile with confidence?

Puppies and kittens are usually born with perfectly healthy teeth and gums, but just like us, from an early age, food material, bacteria and saliva are deposited naturally and continuously on the surface of the teeth and gums forming a plaque.

Left unchecked and untreated this will inevitably lead to inflammation of the gums (gingivitis) and break down of the bone supporting the teeth (periodontitis) with lots of discomfort for your pet (along with very bad breath).

Symptoms can include apparent loss of appetite, dribbling, bad breath and withdrawal. There is also thought to be a link between gum disease and heart disease.

Dental proceedure being carried out on dogDental Clinics

Our veterinary nurses run free dental clinics for pets at Whitchurch, Keynsham, Longwell Green, Ashton and Brislington surgeries.  They will happily check your pet's teeth and advise on preventative care, tooth brushing, diet and, where necessary, give pre-op checks.

Veterinary Nurse, Vicki Adams, has additional qualifications in dentistry for pets.  She has a BVNA (British Veterinary Nursing Association) Certificate in Dentistry which means that she is very knowledgeable in all areas of dental care and fully qualified to carry out scaling and polishing procedures.

For more information or to book your pet's free dental check, please call your surgery.
