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.

Dental Surgery Sydney
VetMed can perform many different surgical dental procedures for your pet. We have the experience and the advanced technology needed to perform advanced dental techniques and address difficult issues such as:
- Oral tumor removal
- Jaw fracture management
- Palate defects

We also offer dental radiography as a form of diagnostic testing. Dental radiographs can reveal oral diseases and assess dental problems that are unseen to the naked eye, such as:
- Root abscess

- Jaw fractures
We use dental x-rays, as well as routine blood tests to properly diagnose the oral problems of your pet and provide a personalised treatment plan.
