Animal Diets and Pet Dental

We all know how important our teeth are for us, for your pets their teeth are even more important to them! If your pet has dental issues then this could lead to bad breath, painful loss of teeth and a host of other health problems. Not only do you have to take care of your pets teeth but you need to make sure they have a great diet. Much like their owners, if a pet eats the wrong type of food this can lead to health problems which can affect their quality of life.

At Riverside Veterinary Centre we are proud of the immense depth of skill and experience invested in the nursing team. Each run their own nurse-led clinics covering all aspects of dental and dietary advice in dedicated nurse consulting rooms.

These clinics run alongside the normal consultations at Riverside and are a huge help in allowing regular monitoring of your pet’s condition. This helps the Vets in their work as the team are constantly updating each other about ongoing cases, a truly integrated approach.

Due to this unique approach we are confident that we can provide you with all the necessary details on how to keep your pet fit and healthy with a shiny set of teeth. You can see from these pictures how your pets teeth should look like, if you are not able to keep up with the cleaning routines you need to make sure you bring your pet to us regularly so we can ensure your pet has the quality of life it deserves. No one likes toothache but your pet may not be able to tell you what is wrong. This way there should be no problems to start with.
