Welcome to Tropical Vet Services

Tropical Vet Services is a group of clinics that service the areas including Tully, Innisfail, Ingham, Babinda, Cardwell and Mission Beach.

August - Pet Dental Health Month! Just like us, pets need dental care every day.  Ignoring the condition of your pet’s mouth can lead to dental disease, tooth loss and other serious problems.Dental disease is more common in smaller breeds of dogs and certain breeds of cats as their teeth are often overcrowded.Dental disease is more common as pets grow older.  Research suggests that this is a result of a lifetime of disease accumulation not just as a result of getting older.Signs of dental disease

  • Bad breath
  • Yellow-brown crust on teeth
  • Bleeding gums
  • Changes in chewing or eating habits
  • Tooth loss
  • Abnormal drooling

Once your pet displays the above warning signs, serious dental disease may already be present.  Don’t wait for the signs to appear – book an appointment for an oral check with your vet today.

Steps to better oral care

  1. Visit your Veterinarian – just like us regular check-ups are important.     
  2. Start an oral care routine at home – raw bones, dental chews, teeth brushing.
  3. If your pet has a problem using a diet made specifically for their teeth may be a great idea.

To encourage our clients to take better care of their pets teeth, Tropical Vet Services are offering a free dental check by one of our nurses during the month of August.  Give us a call today, book your animal in and one of our friendly vet nurses will examine your pet’s teeth.  They will also be able to provide ideas on what products and food your pet may benefit from in regards to their ongoing teeth and gum health.

Call us and make an appointment in either Babinda, Innisfail, Mission Beach, Tully, Cardwell or our Hinchinbrook clinic in Ingham.
