Free Dental Checks
Let our nurses check your pet’s mouth for signs of plaque, tartar and gingivitis for FREE
We will perform a quick oral examination that will determine the condition of your pet’s mouth. We will give you a dental chart showing the problem areas. Should your pet need a dental we will give you an estimate of the costs and the time frame that it should be performed. Most importantly we can educate you on dental hygiene and how you can limit tartar build up in the future. To perform a dental an anaesthetic is required. All tartar can be removed by using dental instruments similar to those that are used to clean our teeth and teeth which are badly decayed will be removed. Your pet might need a short course of antibiotics to control infection. We believe that regular cleans will help prevent serious problems from dental disease in the future. Nurse check will be conducted on Wednesdays and Fridays please ring for an appointment.

B.V.H Animal Biggest Loser – weight management program
Research has shown that nearly half the Australian population of dogs and cats is overweight. Weight gain normally results from an increase in body fat caused by portions being too large especially when combined with a lack of exercise. Health problems appear when body fat exceeds 15% above ideal body weight. Some of these problems include diabetes mellitus, fatty liver disease, skin complaints, breathing difficulties, tumors and arthritis.
If you think your pet is overweight or have been told on a recent visit to the clinic that this is the case, there is no need to feel alone. We as a practice are here to help you and your family tailor a weight management program.
Not only will joining this program provide your pet with a better quality of life but you will also receive complete support from staff with a personal folder containing information on food, exercise and weekly weighing to keep track of your progress.
