Pet dentistry facilities
STAR Vets has invested heavily in the latest pet dentistry equipment, including ultrasonic descalers and dental polishing machines.
Your pet won’t need to go anywhere else as we offer a wide range of dental procedures on-site at our Appleby Magna vet practice.
Vet dental care
Your pet’s teeth and gums will likely need professional dental care a few times in their life. Pets eat, chew, and play using their mouths. A good scale and polish will remove the nasty build-up of plaque and tartar that can lead to dental disease, and bring back the shine on those pearly whites.
Sometimes cats and dogs need more extensive veterinary dental treatments, including tooth extractions and root canal work.
Rabbits and other small furries have teeth that grow continuously. If they become overgrown (usually a good fibrous diet is enough) or misshapen, our Vet Dentists have the equipment to file down and remove spurs. Sometimes teeth may need to be trimmed or removed under general anaesthetic.
Preventative oral health care
Most cases of pet dental disease can be prevented, or at least minimised. This can be achieved through a combination of regular home dental care, routine annual Vet Dentist checkups, and the odd scale and polish.
Our experienced Registered Veterinary Nurses will be happy to show you how to clean your pet’s teeth at home, and talk you through the products available. Take a look at our Nurse clinics.
