The Importance of

Dental care


As infections in the mouth can affect other areas of the body, it’s important to stay on top your your pet’s dental care! Bad breath can be a sign that your pet is suffering from Dental Disease. Dental disease isn’t only painful for your pet, weakened gums also allow bacteria to cross into the bloodstream which can result in other health conditions in your pets vital organs such as the heart, liver and kidneys.

A preventative yearly dental health check for your cat or dog can certainly save you money in the long run and also helps alleviate your pet from having an anaesthetic and teeth extractions. Dental checks are FREE and enable our vets to have a better understanding of exactly what is going on in your pet’s mouth. Our team may recommend your pet have a “scale and polish” with or without teeth extractions from their dental check findings. We will give you a quotation as to the costs associated and outline exactly what will be involved.

At Caloundra Vet Surgery, we also offer a range of products you can purchase to help you clean your dog or cats teeth. We also stock the very latest in dental pet food which you can purchase as a preventative measure to help your pet’s teeth from plaque and decay.

Please contact our friendly team to book a FREE dental check so we can assess your pet’s teeth and provide you with a quote should any treatments or extractions be required.
