A lot of work and effort goes in to keeping your dog healthy: a great diet, lots of walks and regular health checks – but what about their teeth?

When it comes to the health of your dog, dental hygiene is often one aspect that gets overlooked. If it is the case that your canine companion is feeling some kind of oral discomfort it will have an extremely negative effect on their overall quality of life.

You may be under the impression that dental issues do not occur too regularly where dogs are concerned. However, the truth is that 85% of dogs aged four or older suffer from some sort of periodontal disease during their lives.

The good news is that the vast majority of dental conditions that your dog may develop can be successfully treated here at Barna Vet Clinic. If an issue is left untreated it is possible that the infection may get into the blood stream and cause more serious problems in other areas of the body, so it’s vital to keep on top of your pet’s preventative care.

The best way to ensure that your pet is not suffering from any oral discomfort is to have their mouth checked regularly by a specialist. All dental health checks are carried out by an experienced member of our team and are completed quickly, efficiently and with minimal discomfort to your pet.

For more information about dental health checks, or to book an appointment with us please call 091 867008 today and a member of our friendly team will be happy to help.
