Dentistry @ NVC

We offer a full range of dental care services from products to use at home right through to advanced procedures such as root canal and orthodontics. NVC has a dedicated dental suite with all the equipment necessary to diagnose and treat the range of dental disease seen in our dog, cat and rabbit patients.

Dental care is incredibly important for our pets (just as it is for us). Oral disease causes pain and illness, so getting the right treatment is vital for our pet’s happiness.
