What can I expect for my pet at a dental check?
At a dental appointment, we will take an in-depth look at the state of your pet’s mouth, teeth, and gums. If dental disease is identified, we may recommend further blood tests or x-rays to determine the severity of the problem. In this case, will discuss this with you as necessary before taking action for your pet.
At Yarraville Vet Clinic, cleanings are performed under anaesthetic, as we can’t simply ask your pet to “open wide!” Dental cleaning under anaesthetic ensures that teeth and gums are cleaned thoroughly – and allows us to limit the possibility of painful infection for your pet. We are committed to the ethical treatment of all of our patients, and will work with you to ensure that they are treated with the utmost care and compassion.
