March 2018 – Nog’s Pearly Whites

Happy Easter chums!

I hope you all survived the Lenten Blues, the Beast from the East and the Pest from the West (I personally found that asking my human to cook me sausages helped!) Anyway, what better pick me up than a full set of healthy gnashers for your animal friend?

I’m happy to announce that my clever vet pals are advancing the way we undergo dental surgeries and it all starts now!

Whenever your furry pal comes in to see us, we’ll be having a quick check of their teeth. They’ll be scored from 1-5 and for anyone graded 3 or above (significant tartar build up and gum disease), it will be recommended that your pet has a dental ATP: assessment, treatment and plan.

The dental ATP will involve:

  • general anaesthetic
  • fluid therapy during the surgery
  • full set of dental X-rays
  • full scale and polish
  • 30mins essential dental surgery

My creative vet team will produce a handy post-op sheet with before and after photos, information about what has been seen, done and any treatments that will be necessary in the future. If further treatment is needed then your furry pal can get booked in at a later date for another planned procedure. If not, hurrah… our job is done!

We’ve found that two shorter anaesthetics are safer for your animal friends than a longer more painful one. Recovery times will be kept to a minimum and everyone’s happy!

P.S. Feel free to book a free dental health check with a vet or nurse any time. I’m always happy to see new faces (even if they might have smelly breath…)
