Dentistry

Did you know that dental disease is found in 4 out of 5 pets over the age of 3?

We all know the importance of looking after our own teeth but it is just as important to look after your pet's teeth as well. The introduction of a dental hygiene routine and selecting a suitable feed can help towards preventing dental disease.  

Signs of dental disease include:

  • Smelly breath (halitosis)
  • Red or swollen gums (known as gingivitis)
  • Difficulty in eating and chewing food
  • Loose teeth
  • Bacterial overgrowth on teeth, leading to plaque and tartar formation which causes discoloration of teeth
  • Long-term disease to weight loss

Brushing Teeth

Both dogs and cats require special brushes. There are dog and cat toothpastes - either fish or poultry flavoured. Human toothpaste should never be used as this can lead to problems with flouride toxicity. If introduced at an early age, many pets will tolerate teeth brushing well. Finger brushes can be used at first and then progressing to tooth brushes once your pet is more accustomed to the routine. We offer free nurse clinics at most of our branches, where they can show you how to brush your pet's teeth.

Food Products

Diets such as Royal Canin Dental Veterinary diet and Hills T/D diet are both dry diets, which have a specifically designed kibble sized to produce a mechanical brushing effect on the teeth. These diets can be bought at all of our branches.

Repeat Prescriptions

To ensure that your pet continues to be treated with the most appropriate medication at the correct dose, we are obliged to carry out re-examinations at regular intervals.  

The time period between these examinations will vary depending on the condition and the medication.  These checks will be charged at a reduced consultation fee and in certain cases a blood test will also be required.

For conditions requiring long-term medication, these checks will usually be every 3-6 months.

All pets must have yearly check-ups for repeat prescriptions of flea and worm treatments.

Please allow 24 hours' notice in order to ensure all prescriptions are available and ready for collection.

To order a prescription please contact your local surgery or email prescriptions@bathvetgroup.co.uk with the pet's name and medication.

Written prescriptions are available at a cost of £15.

If you wish to claim on your insurance for medication, please provide a completed claim form at the time of collection.

MRI and CT Scanning

Through Bath Vet Referrals, which is based at the Rosemary Lodge Veterinary Hospital, we are able to offer the advanced imaging of both MRI and CT scans.

MRI, magnetic resonance imaging, produces detailed soft tissue images. Due to the ability of MRI to ‘see through bone’, and image the soft tissue within, it is most useful for brain disease, eyes and for planning cancer surgery.

Computed tomography (CT), is essentially a three-dimensional x-ray which can provide excellent detail in bone, creating almost perfect 3D reconstructions of joints and excellent detail in moving organs such as lungs. CT has many uses, including some of the following common investigations:

  • Respiratory disease e.g. chronic coughing, difficulty breathing
  • Nasal diseases
  • Soft tissue surgery planning
  • Large dogs with abdominal disease
  • Orthopaedic diseases, including elbow dysplasia and spinal fractures

Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy has been shown to improve tissue repair following a soft tissue injury, improve wound healing, reduce inflammation, aid pain relief and improve conditions such as tendinopathies, sprains and muscle spasm, osteoarthritis, post-operative and traumatic wounds.

Our resident physiotherapist is Alexandra Hallet and more information can be found on the Bath Physiotherapy & Canine Hydrotherapy website.

Free Weight Checks

About 50% of pets are overweight! This is mainly due to lack of exercise and overeating. There are many serious health problems associated with obesity, such as heart problems, arthritis and even diabetes mellitus. If you can’t feel your cat or dog's ribs easily then it may be time to bring your pet to the surgery for a free weight check; get in touch today.
