LOOKING AFTER YOUR PET'S TEETH AT HOME

1. Feed your pet a balanced, vet approved diet that consists of all the types of food your pet would forage for in the wild. Think chewy, tough and perfect for tearing apart with strong teeth. Ask us about our Hills T/D discount vouchers!

2. Flip their lip! Lift your pet's lip up regularly to check for any yellowness of teeth, bad breath or redness of gums. These are signs to be very wary of and could signify dental disease. 

3. Brushing of the teeth. Although it sounds a little odd, daily toothbrushing is the best way to help prevent your pet from dangerous dental conditions. Make sure you ask us for advice on the best teeth-cleaning products for your pet, as regular human toothpaste is toxic to animals.

4. And most importantly! Ensure yearly dental vet check-ups are scheduled in your calendar. As part of our examination, we will take Screening Dental Radiographs which can detect problems early and allow treatment to prevent more extensive tooth damage and dental problems in general. 

Completing these steps will provide your pet with the best opportunity possible for the quality of life they deserve. Has it been awhile since your pet had a dental check? Don't wait until teeth are broken or loose to have them treated, make a booking now. 

 
RADIOACTIVE IODINE THERAPY

Did you know we offer Radioactive Iodine Therapy for the treatment of Hyperthyroidism in cats? ��

✨ Hyperthyroidism is a disease of older cats caused by excessive secretion of thyroid hormone by abnormal thyroid cells.

✨Elevated thyroid hormone levels cause increased metabolism and the other common clinical signs of Hyperthyroidism:
✅Weight loss
✅Appetite changes
✅Increased water consumption
✅Vomiting
✅Diarrhoea
✅Rapid heart rate
✅Heart murmur
✅Elevated blood pressure
✅Increased vocalisation
✅Muscle weakness
✅Poor hair coat

✨Hyperthyroidism tends to be a gradual onset disorder, with many cats losing weight slowly over several months or a few years. It's important to note that not all cats will experience all of these symptoms.

✨If left untreated, the increased metabolism will eventually cause organ failure (heart, kidney, blindness due to retinal detachment) and premature death.

✨There are a number of methods available for treating this condition. However, the only permanent method which does not involve surgery is with the use of radioactive iodine.

✨Treatment with radioactive iodine is a very safe procedure for your cat, is not at all painful and has no serious side effects. It is well recognised as the best way to treat this disease and is used by veterinarians world-wide. It is the same treatment that is often used for people suffering from Hyperthyroidism.
