Dentals:

DENTAL DISEASE AFFECTS UP TO 80% OF PETS OVER THE
AGE OF THREE; AND JUST LIKE HUMANS, THERE CAN BE SERIOUS
CONSEQUENCES TO POOR DENTAL HEALTH. 

Ceres Vet has a brand new, state of the art, dental machine.  This allows us to do scaling, polishing and dental extractions must faster (decreasing high risk anaesthetic) and efficiently.

Dogs start out with 28 deciduous (baby) teeth; cats start out with 26 deciduous teeth. By six months of age, these baby teeth fall out and are replaced by permanent teeth, 42 in the dog and 30 in the cat. If the deciduous teeth don't fall out and the permanent teeth erupt under them, this can lead to problems like increased tartar formation, malocclusion and gum irritation/ infection.
Infected teeth and gums aren’t just a problem in the mouth; they can lead to infection in the kidneys, lung, heart, and even joints. The infection and plaque in the mouth contain a multitude of bacteria that can “seed” to other parts of the body. With regular dental care, you can prevent these negative side effects.
From time to time, a professional dental cleaning may be needed. The dental itself is similar to a person’s dental cleaning: plaque is removed, checking for cavities, pockets in the gums, checking for growths on the gums or palette, removal of diseased teeth; and finally: polishing. Some dogs and cats need cleaning every year; others can go for longer periods.
What can you do to prevent dental disease?   
Make sure that you keep up with regular dental exams and yearly vaccinations. Ask your vet for a free dental evaluation with every yearly vaccination at Ceres Vet! Remember that the modern diets such as Hills, Royal Canin and Iams/ Eukanuba have kibble sizes;  pH control as well as polyphosphates that help prevent plaque buildup. They are keeping your pets’ teeth clean while enjoying a healthy balanced diet!
