D is for our nurses Deanne and Daina and Dentals!

Dentals - This includes cleaning your pets teeth with an ultrasonic scaler to remove calcified bacteria - also known as tartar. As well as extracting diseased teeth.
It is important to keep your pets teeth clean and disease free as dental disease can lead to bacteria entering your pets blood stream and potentially causing kidney and cardiac disease. We have a specialised dental x-ray machine, this helps us to see your pets teeth from the root through to the crown. We can use these x-rays to spot which teeth are a problem and may need to be extracted!

If you are worried about your pets dental health please make an appointment!

FUN FACT: Koi Carp have 1 tooth which is found at the back of their throat, rather than at the front of the mouth which you would expect! 🐟

There are many types of mites that can live in cats’ ears, but the most common are Otodectes cynotis. These often infest the external ear, causing inflammation. It takes approximately 3 weeks for the mite to complete its life cycle and all of it is spent in the host animal.
Otodectes cynotis can affect cats, dogs, rabbits and ferrets. They are considered to be highly contagious and cats can get these parasites by direct contact with another infested animal. Infestations are more common in kittens and young cats.
A cat that has ear mites will shake his or her head and scratch the affected ear or ears. There can be a dark waxy or crusty discharge in the ear and you may also notice a bad smell coming from the affected ear.
These mites can lead to more serious infections of the ears and skin if they are not treated. If you notice your cat is scratching his or her ears more than usual and if you notice any abnormal discharge, do not hesitate and bring your pet to the vet!
