Dental Health... small steps of care now for less stress later!


Best health care for ‘you and yours’ takes care and investment.
Investment in learning what signs to look for early on… can save an emergency later on!

Take our teeth, for example:
A little bit of regular health care from the beginning with teeth brushing, dental foods / treats, watching for signs and annual dental checks will save the treatment of advanced dental disease and organ diseases later on.

Your animal can’t tell you when their gums are hurting, but look for any of these signs of Dental Disease:
Yellow / brown crust on teeth,
Bleeding gums,
Pawing or rubbing the mouth,
Difficulty eating, 
Tooth loss, drooling or… BAD BREATH!

Dental Disease starts with pain and discomfort, but then contributes to overall health problems and can lead to organ damage.
Bacteria from the mouth infection enters the bloodstream through the inflamed gums, impacting your animal’s heart, liver and kidneys.
It’s important to deal with all dental problems sooner rather than later… to prevent anything turning into Dental Disease.

For tips and tricks of how to provide the best health care for your pets, invest some time now… make an appointment at your nearest Tropical Vets clinic for a FREE dental check with one of our nurses in August and September.




Reflecting our ongoing 'Corona Care' for each other, we ask that – where possible – only 1 family member comes into our consultation rooms at a time.

Please, also, do not come into the clinic if you are unwell or are required to isolate by Qld Health guidelines.

We appreciate your understanding and will continue to update our advice in line with government recommendations.

For best health, animals in the Tropical North need to be vaccinated.
