Colin Baxter BVM&S MRCVS

Veterinary dentistry is treated very seriously at Nantwich Veterinary Hospital. It is probably one of the most common conditions ignored by most people! Periodontal disease and gingivitis are present in the majority of dogs and cats over the age of three.

Rabbits and chinchillas can also have dental problems and we are happy to advise and treat as appropriate. At Nantwich Veterinary Hospital we can offer advice on a whole range of conditions and will give information on prevention of dental disease, advice regarding feeding, suggest appropriate chews and toys to be considered, and can perform preventative, curative, reparative, and even orthodontic therapies.

Colin Baxter is well recognised for his dental interests spanning over 20 years. He has been a president and founder member of the British Veterinary Dental Association (BVDA), is also a founder member of the European Veterinary Dental Society and has appeared on TV and has actively participated in dentally related cases at Chester Zoo. He has published regularly and frequently presents on the subject. He is a co-author of the BSAVA manual of small animal dentistry.
