The dental occlusion angles required for each species of exotic mammal are unique to that individual species, and sometimes to each individual animal. The corrective trimming off incisors and cheek teeth of each type of animal is different and must be approached specifically. This approach requires general anesthesia in most cases, careful monitoring, and specialized tools and equipment. Dr. Erby can assess your animal’s teeth at your annual wellness exam and will make recommendations based on the individual needs of your pet.
Rabbit & Rodent Dentistry
Dentistry of small exotic pets is a common and sometimes necessary procedure to correct and realign occlusion abnormalities. Dental problems in rabbits and rodents can lead to life threatening conditions due to their need for constant chewing and grinding of roughage material.
Regular dental examination and routine cleanings are important in maintaining not only your pet’s teeth but his or her overall health as well.
