Dental disease is the most common problem facing our four-legged friends with the majority of both dogs and cats showing some signs of dental disease by the age of 3!
When you have tooth pain you call your dentist and make an appointment, right? Well, unfortunately, our dogs and cats can’t actually tell us that they're in pain. Instead, we need to rely on subtle signs that something isn’t quite right with our pet. Does your pet display any of the signs below?
- Difficulty eating or not eating as much as they normally do?
- Bad breath?
- Displaying pain or aggression more often, particularly when their mouth is being handled?
- Not grooming themselves as they normally would? This is particularly significant for cats who may start to display an unkempt coat
If your pet is showing any of these signs, it would be a good idea to book an appointment for a dental assessment before your pet’s potential dental disease progresses. During an assessment, the vet will examine your pet’s teeth and determine if your pet would benefit from further treatment.
With all dental treatment up to 50% off for a limited time, there’s no better time to check your pet’s dental health.

What if my pet isn’t showing any of these signs?
That’s a good indication that your pet isn’t suffering from a high-grade dental disease but as we know, our pets are all unique and they can often react differently to pain or discomfort. Cats will often do their best to hide their pain so early discomfort may not be immediately noticeable.
Early stages of dental disease can often be treated with a procedure called a ‘descale and polish’. This procedure removes the bacteria in your pets’ mouth and uses ultrasonic vibration to break down plaque and tartar on your pet's teeth followed by polishing to leave your pet's teeth gleaming. This procedure is an excellent way to prevent dental disease from progressing and presenting a more serious or complex dental issue down the line.
