Do you know the physical signs of dental disease in your pet? Does your pet have bad breath and reddened or bleeding gums?
Dental disease begins when soft plaque inflames the gums, a condition called "gingivitis." Gingivitis can led to periodontitis which is the inflammation of the tissues around the teeth. If left untreated, periodontitis can cause loss of teeth and infection in the heart or kidneys. It also makes it painful to eat, and your pet could lose their appetite and weight.
Physical signs of dental disease are not obvious, even when it is advanced. This is why it is important to have your pet's teeth checked regularly.
We offer expert advice to help you keep your pet's teeth healthy. Dental health shouldn’t be taken for granted. Fortunately, many dental problems can be managed through at-home care and by bringing your pet to us for regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings.
