At Grove Lodge Vets, we have: 

  • Invested in the latest equipment to provide cutting edge dental treatment for your pets. We have digital dental X-ray systems at many of our branches, meaning we can take radiographs (X-rays) of your pet's teeth to accurately diagnose the problem.

  • A brand new top-of-the-range dental unit at the main hospital. This is like the unit at your dentist and provides a dental drill, a lower speed polishing device, suction and ultrasonic scaling capabilities. Most of our branches have similar dental units.

  • Hand instruments available for ALL sizes of pets, from Great Danes to Chihuahuas, to big cats, small cats, puppies, kittens, rabbits AND rodents!

  • The latest and safest anaesthetic drugs and monitoring equipment.

  • Veterinary hot air blankets to keep your pet warm under anaesthetics.

  • Monitoring equipment that checks your pet is safe whilst under the anaesthetic (just like on the TV!).

  • Intravenous fluids available to any patient.

  • Pre-anaesthetic blood testing available on-site with results in minutes.

  • A Vet dedicated to dentistry! Rachel Perry is a veterinary surgeon with post-graduate qualifications in small animal dentistry and oral surgery. All of her professional time is spent treating dogs' and cats' oral and dental diseases, and it is a subject she is very passionate and knowledgeable about. Rachel is available at the hospital on a Tuesday or Friday, and the initial consultation and assessment is FREE to Grove Lodge clients.

  • A full range of homecare products, from toothpastes, toothbrushes, antiseptic gels, professional chews, toys, and special dental diets.

  • Our Practice Nurses can provide ongoing support for your oral care programme at home.

 

Cats and dogs commonly suffer from dental disease. In fact, by the age of 3-4, up to 75% of cats and dogs will have some form of gum disease (periodontal disease).  Initially the gum inflammation will cause halitosis (bad breath!). Dogs should not have dog-breath and cats should not have fish-breath!

 

We are here to help!
