Pet dental services: dental care for dogs, cats and rabbits

We recommend you should have your pet’s teeth examined by one of our team on a regular basis. As many conditions are progressive, early identification is important.

A full dental check is included free with our Complete Wellness Plan.

If necessary, this should be followed up with a professional dental clean. Our team will then remove the tartar above and below the gumline and polish them, just like a dentist does for our teeth.

If certain teeth are so severely affected they cannot be saved, extractions will be necessary. Pets are usually able to go home on the same day.

– Dental health checks £FREE

– Scale & polish £99

– Dental with extractions £199

For more information on caring for your pets, including tips on good pet dental care and how to clean your pet’s teeth, read our advice pages.

All prices are inclusive of VAT.

Staff are fantastic and very polite and friendly. Highly recommend too anyone."

- Claire Louise Smith

"Our lively and loud collie cross was looked after
wonderfully.
He had a small lump removal and was released to us
alert and well following this.
Due to his vocal nature I was expecting a 'come and
get him call but this didn't happen. He was cared for
perfectly till fit and well enough to come home -
albeit in 'the cone' which is causing us great
amusement and bruises.
Cant recommend this practice highly enough."

- Bethany Ruth Dingsdale

"Very sadly I had to agree to put a 6 month old kitten / cat to sleep this time last week. White Cross in St Helens had been there for him through his vaccinations, his chip and his snip. I was a mess but was allowed to sit with my kitten in my arms for as long as I wanted / needed to pull myself together.
My Mrs received a call later in the day to make sure I had arrived home safely. Clearly my upset state was a concern for the staff and the care and consideration to call my Mrs speaks volumes for these guys.
A lovely sympathy card with the little man's paw print inside arrived in the post a few days later and I cannot speak highly enough about the staff and the care given to pets and soppy owners like me. Thank you very much indeed."

- Neil Roberts
