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.

"Last week our beautiful dog Mollie was struck down by bloat which is a potentially fatal condition. She was initially seen and operated on by ‘Vets Now’ due to it being a Sunday evening, and was then transferred by ourselves to White Cross. We were met by Jessica who immediately reasurred us and showed such compassion & professionalism, in fact all of the staff at White Cross cared for Mollie as though she were their own. They invited us to phone at any time for an update and contacted us when they said they would. Thanks to their care Mollie has made a wonderful recovery, I can’t thank them enough and will highly recommend this practice to everyone."
