Dentistry is our passion here at Happy Paws

We strongly believe in the benefits of preventive dentistry to keep your pets mouth and the rest of their health in tip-top shape.

Did you know that 80% of pets over the age of 3 have significant periodontal disease?

In general they don’t complain about it or go off their food, but make no mistake about it, it affects their quality of life! Infection in the mouth (seen as tartar, inflamed gums, bad breath and sometimes broken or loose teeth) can affect your fur baby’s entire body as the bacteria are absorbed into the bloodstream and circulate around their body. It is also usually painful to varying degrees and can even make them feel depressed!

More clients come back to us and say things like ‘he/she is like a kitten/puppy again, I had no idea that the dental disease was affecting him/her so much!, Thank you!’ after dentistry than after any other procedure! (so not only is dentistry good for your pet it is also a bit self serving for us, to get all those thank yous!) It is a win-win treatment all around!

We are equipped with the latest in dental radiology, and are able to perform a range of simple and more complex extractions and oral surgery.

To encourage all owners to keep on top of their pets’ dental hygiene we offer free year round dental checks with our friendly nurses.

We also stock a range of preventative dental products and our staff are more than happy to show you how to brush your pets’ teeth!
