Dentistry

A first-class veterinary dental clinic that provides all kinds of services for the diagnosis and treatment of dental diseases, oral cavities and jaws.

The Unit for Dentistry became fully operational at the Small Animal Clinic in 1988. Following extensive renovation and modernisation in 2016, it is now a leading veterinary dental surgery, which provides all kinds of services for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the teeth, oral cavity and jaw. It also cooperates with other clinics and institutes in Slovenia and further afield.

The clinic mainly treats cats and dogs. In collaboration with veterinarians - specialists in other animal species – occasionally other animals such as rabbits, rodents, ferrets and horses are also treated. Since general anaesthesia is often required for surgery, animals are treated by a well-trained team of highly trained experts in small animal medicine.
