Darwin My Vet Service will be running a pet dental promotion to raise awareness of pet dental problems, prevention and treatment.
The aim of the campaign is to educate pet owners about the benefits of annual dental health checks and regular tooth brushing.
Four out of five dogs and cats over the age of three years have some sort of dental disease which may go unnoticed by their owners.
Pets often won’t show pain. Even pets with sore gums, infected mouths and broken teeth will continue to eat so owners may not see any problems.
So how can you tell if your dog or cat has a toothache?
Your pet’s breath should not smell bad. Bad breath is a sign of infection. Gums may be red and inflamed and the teeth stained with tartar or they may start dropping food.
Annual dental health checks are an ideal opportunity for owners to find out if their pet has existing problems which have gone unnoticed. Dental health checks also help ensure bacteria and poisons from dental infections do not spread to the heart, liver and kidneys through the blood stream. About 80 per cent of adult animals have some degree of dental disease, which becomes more severe with age.
Darwin My Vet Service is offering FREE DENTAL EXAMINATIONS for your dog or cat!!
Your pet will stay with us for half a day in air conditioned comfort, while the vet performs a comprehensive dental exam. From this the vet will assess your pet’s dental health and determine any concerns that need attention. When you come to collect your pet, the vet will discuss any treatment recommendations with you, and what you can do at home to help keep your pet’s teeth in top condition.
Discounts may apply on some products and procedures recommended.
