Dental program

Tuesday, June 02, 2015

Canberra Cat Vet has launched a new  dental program to catch dental disease in the early stages.

Dental disease prevention in cats is a high priority for us because cats rarely show us the full extent of the pain and discomfort they suffer because of tartar on their teeth and gum disease. It is only after we have treated the dental disease and our cats return to their playful, happy former selves that we realise how much pain they were in.

Cats enrolled in the dental program receive:

  • A free dental check up every 6 months
  • Advice on minimising plaque and tartar buildup
  • A discounted scale and polish if we find your cat has early stage dental disease

You can enroll your cat in the program at the annual check up or vaccination, or just phone for an appointment for a free dental check at any time on 6251 1444.


Smokey has a lot of tartar on his molars, infected gums and osteomyelitis. This is what Canberra Cat Vet's dental program wants to prevent!
