Dentistry

Prophylactic dental advice is one of the philosophical protocols of the practice.

Diet plays a major role in causing or preventing dental and gum disease. Soft food (cans) and scraps or treats from the “table” not only imbalances the balanced diets, it induces long-term malnutrition with possible detrimental effects on the teeth, gums, gastrointestinal tract, pancreas, liver and kidneys.

The practice advocates only balanced pet foods in pellet, kibble or biscuit form.

Dental plaque/tartar and periodontal disease have long-term detrimental effects on the heart and kidneys of both cats and dogs e.g. endocarditis, cardiac valve insufficiency (heart murmurs), congestive heart failure, nephritis, renal failure. DIET IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PREVENTION

Dental care is carried out in the surgery.

Senior cats and dogs over 7 years of age may require pre-anaesthetic blood chemistry and placed on an intravenous drip.

Pets don't always love vets, but...

At Werder Vet, we understand that if you are calm and relaxed, that will transfer to your animal at a time when they may be unwell, anxious and needing you the most. Therefore we pride ourselves on being the friendliest and most down to earth bunch of people. We’re all either locals, or we wish we were.
