Dental care for pets in Southside Glasgow
Did you know that most dogs and cats over the age of three have dental disease that needs attention now?
Dental disease can be very painful and can affect your pet’s quality of life. Left untreated, it can lead to secondary infections and health complications in other parts of your pet’s body.
At Rouken Glen Veterinary Surgery, we can help you care for your pet’s teeth at home and provide veterinary dental services to keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy.

- Red, swollen, bleeding gums
- Sensitive to touch
- Broken or misaligned teeth
- Holes in teeth – typically in cats
- Overgrown teeth in rabbits and small furry pets
