Many pet owners forget the fact that dental health is one of the most important aspects of pet health. Poor oral health in your pet will lead to more than just bad breath. It can lead to infection and chronic pain, as well as long-term consequences like heart, liver and kidney disease.
At VetMed in Sydney, we believe in the importance of pet oral health. Our veterinary dentistry encompasses more than just an annual check-up. In fact, we can offer your pet a full range of advanced dentistry services and even dental surgery for pets.
