Dental Care .
Ninja often gets chew treats and bones to keep his teeth clean. But as Ninja grew older tartar started to build up on his large canines.
Slowly it became a problem. The tartar does not only build up on the visible part of the teeth, but it creeps under the gingival where it is no longer visible, keeps growing and may cause serious issues.
Last year I tried a product from a German company to soften up the tartar so it could be brushed away. I tried it with my old dog Akiak and it worked very well.
Ninja however refused to eat for a few days after each treatment and I stopped giving it to him.
We already had amazing experience with VETtrust in Basel, 🇨🇭 and decided to give Ninja into the skilled hands of VETtrust’s dental care department in Basel, the most modern vet clinic in Switzerland.
There are multiple advantages to a treatment at vet clinic: – X-Raying
3 years ago Ninja chipped his tooth while playing with another dog and blood filled the tooth, we could check if there was a fracture.
Also oftentimes you cannot see if there are already infections below the gingiva and a superficial treatment may not be enough
– skilled Veterinarians
A specialized vet will have additional training in his field of expertise and a lot more experience. Other specialized vets can easily be consulted within the clinic.
prior anesthesia special examinations take place in order to adjust treatment for each dog
An anesthesia specialist will be present for all of the treatment
Ninja is already feeling a lot better and the results are amazing. Great to see his canines white, clean and healthy again.
