August is Pet Dental Health Month

Dog's teeth

Did you know that dogs have 42 permanent teeth & cats have 30?

Your pet's dental hygiene is imperative to good internal health. Receive a free dental health check for your dog and cat during the month of August.

Permanent adult teeth need to be cared for as these are for life.

Watch out for the 7 signs of dental disease caused by age, diet, lifestyle and breed:

  • bad breath
  • discoloured or loose teeth
  • hard plaque or tartar deposits
  • sensitive around the mouth
  • bleeding from the mouth
  • loss of appetite/drooling/dropping food 
  • tooth root abscess

Dental disease causes discomfort and health risks such as infection, pain and potential organ damage. Talk to our qualified dental staff at the Companion Animal Health Centre for a complete oral hygiene health check, dental plan and any dental work required.

The Companion Animal Health Centre also stocks a range of dental products for preventative care such as brushing, dental diets and chew toys.

Ask our qualified staff to discuss your dental needs and book in for your free dental check-up.
