Dog in pain with severe tartar and gingivitis
No pet ever should nor need get this bad
Our senior vet Alan Rossiter - a founding member of the Irish Veterinary Dentistry Society - has a special interest in veterinary dentistry and is happy to see second opinion and referral cases.
This problem can get out of control and be become very difficult to treat but if we get to see these patients early and start them on the correct treatment promptly we can often control things very well and prevent it ever getting as bad as in the dog in the picture.
