As American Veterinary Dental College states.....
Good oral health is an important part of good general health for your pet.
Signs of oral and dental diseases in dogs and cats:
- Bad breath
- Loose teeth, discolored teeth or teeth covered in tartar
- Your pet shies away from you when you touch the mouth area
- Drooling or dropping food from the mouth
- Bleeding from the mouth
- Loss of appetite or loss of weight (this combination can result from diseases of many organs, and early veterinary examination is important)
If you think your pet needs dental care, we recommend that you make an appointment with your veterinarian.
Prevention of the most common oral disease in pets consists of frequent removal of the dental plaque and tartar that forms on teeth that are not kept clean. If you would like information on controlling plaque and tartar buildup on your pet's teeth, call our office.
