At Animal Ark Vets in Ilford, we advise that your pet’s dental hygiene is just as important as any other routine and preventative treatment. Like humans, pets can develop a build-up of tartar, leading to tooth decay and gum disease.

Brushing your dog or cat’s teeth once or twice a day is the best option for good oral hygiene. Learn about dental grading here

We do have other products such as liquids to add to your pet’s water to help reduce plaque build-up and reduce bad breath (halitosis) as well as veterinary dental diets. Teeth brushing is the very best course of action though for your pet’s dental and oral health. We can discuss these different products and diets that may be of interest to you at any of our surgeries.
