Question
Dear Prof Walter

Are there Bachelor of Dental surgery or any other specialisation courses for Pets and other animals viz Dogs,Cats,Rabbits, Horses etc?

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Again I can only answer for the USA but I can only assume that similar practices occur in other developed countries. I have seen photos here of dentists doing dental work on big cats under anesthesia. Some vets specialize in dental work on pets and have to be certified. Regular vets can clean teeth
