What makes dental hygiene so important? According to recent studies, 70 percent of adult cats and 80 percent of adult dogs have signs of dental disease. In reality, most pet parents are unaware that their pet has dental problems. Bad breath, plaque buildup, excessive drooling, sore or bleeding gums when eating or chewing, and a decrease in appetite are all indicators that your pet’s teeth need to be cleaned. If you notice any of these symptoms, please contact our team, and we’ll be happy to help.

We are happy to have the most up-to-date equipment for treating dental illness, including digital dental x-rays, at vetXpress. This enables us to detect any disease beneath the gum line that we would otherwise be unable to see. Thanks to dental radiographs, we may often observe undetected abscesses, damaged teeth, resorbed roots, retained roots, and more. We can then extract the problematic tooth or root, or clean and flush the abscess effectively. Please contact us as soon as possible to book a dental examination.
