In Rabbits and Guinea Pigs the main form of dental disease is Malocclusion. This is where the back molars overgrow and trap the tongue. The main causes are a diet lacking in fibre, vitamin deficiencies and some genetic factors can cause the disease.
There are some signs which you may notice in your pet such:
Lack of interest in Food
Breath has a strong odour

At Vet Central we can assess your pet for dental disease and look at the best treatment plan for your pet. Dental disease has 5 stages with the final stage leading to bacterial infection of the roots which can enter the blood stream and affect the kidney, liver and heart.
We have a wide variety of treatment options and cater a plan to suit your needs. We help you choose the best nutritional products, treats and also assess if a dental scale and polish is needed for your pet to help them get back on track with their oral health.
