Dentistry

What can we do for your pet's teeth?

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

If you are not sure whether your pet has dental problems, you may chose to see our skilled Practice Nurses who are able to identify many problems in your pet's mouth that may require veterinary attention or our vets who can perform a thorough mouth exam and identify many dental problems.

Or you may even wish to see a specialist in dentistry! Rachel Perry is a European and RCVS Specialist in Veterinary Dentistry (one of only eight in the UK). She sees patients twice a week at the main hospital in Worthing. An initial assessment appointment with Rachel is FREE to Grove Lodge clients. Rachel is involved in teaching veterinary dentistry to vets and nurses in the UK and abroad. She regularly provides training and update sessions for our Grove Lodge team, so they are familiar with the latest techniques to provide safe and comfortable dental treatment for your pet.If you would prefer Rachel to assess and treat your pet's dental problem, please get in touch. Read more about her referral work here or click here to book an appointment.
