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.

- Paula Chapman

"When we first came to Whitecross Vets at Walkden we were new parents!! New parents to our beautiful Chihuahua Poppy. Going to the vets was a brand new experience but one we will always remember. Not only did the vets and nurses look after Poppy but also educated us on everything. After a year we felt so confident that we got our new baby Chihuahua Pickle and again she has also become part of the Whitecross family.

The vets, nurses and the administration staff are all amazing and go out of there way to make you feel happy and content with everything that is happening with our pet. Now trips to the vets is a family occasion as we all love going. We relax and have some fun with all the staff in a brilliant family friendly environment. I know that the times we go won’t always be happy times if our babies are poorly however I do know that they will always be in the very best hands. Thanks for everything guys.. Love from Jackie, Poppy & Pickle and Family xxx”"
