Dental Health

Ashwood Veterinary has invested heavily into equipment and training in order to offer superior dental health care for your pets.  We routinely see pets with advanced dental disease.  They often present with smelly breath, weight loss, difficulty eating and inappetence.  However, 60% of dental disease lies below the gumline and not visible to the naked eye.  Therefore, despite our best efforts, unless dental x-rays are performed, we may not see teeth that are diseased and painful to your pet.  With the options of dental radiology, we are able to identify root problems early and determine more precisely which teeth need extracting.
