Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hi there, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.
I'm sorry to hear Albert has bad teeth, I appreciate this must be a concern.
How exactly can I help today?
Any tooth that is diseased and causing pain does need to be removed. Once the tooth gets to a certain point, there will be no saving it.
Healthy teeth should not be removed. Rather, we should aim to maintain them in good health by tooth brushing, feeding hard kibble rather than soft food, feeding a dental diet such as Hills T/D and using products such as Logic Gel to minimise plaque levels.
If it is the case that all of Albert's teeth are beyond saving the, absolutely, it is better for him to have them removed.
Please do let me know if you have any further questions?
