Our New Service: Dental Radiography 

Upper Hutt Veterinary Hospital is excited to announce the addition of dental radiography to our list of services. As you are all aware from previous newsletters, gum disease can progress quickly through the four stages, from mild gum disease through to large amounts of plaque, swollen gums, bleeding and tooth loss.  

Dental radiography is a vital component of maintaining optimal oral health. It provides essential information on tooth enamel and can aid greatly in the decision on when a tooth needs extracting or can be maintained. Cats greatly benefit from dental radiographs as it identifies those suffering from Feline Oral Resorptive lesions which is a painful disease that often goes undiagnosed. Give the clinic a call or make a FREE dental nurse consult to learn more about dental radiographs and their potential benefits to you and your pet.
