Dental Hygiene

 
Here at Racecourse Road Veterinary Hospital, we care just as much about your pet’s dental health and hygiene as we do about their overall health.

Some of our team members have come to us with past pet dental experience and they bring that knowledge and experience to you and your pets. With our brand new dental machine, we are able to perform a variety of exams and procedures. The dental services we provide for your pet are:
 
 
  • Ultrasonic scaling
  • Polishing
  • Tooth Extractions
 
 
 
  • Periodontics
  • Endodontics
 
 
 
 
Oral and dental diseases can lead to other problems with your pet such as not being able to eat, increased risk of infection and other issues.

Signs that your dog or cat may have poor oral or dental health:
 
 
  • Bad breath
  • Loose, broken or discoloured teeth
  • Teeth covered with tartar
  • Your pet doesn’t want to be touched around the mouth or teeth
 
 
 
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Tumours on the gums
  • Pawing at the mouth or drooling
 
 
 
 
Please bring your pet to see us for regular dental exams or if you believe your pet may have an oral or dental problem.
