Pet Dental Issues
Like most issues, it is best to deal with them as soon as they present themselves. With that in mind, we recommend regular dental check-ups for all dogs, and we typically include this in our annual check-ups as routine.
Common signs of dental issues include:
- Bad breath
- Swollen or bleeding gums
- Missing teeth
- Blood in saliva or nasal discharge
- Lesions in mouth
If you notice these or anything unusual in your pets mouth, teeth or gums give us a call to set up an appointment.
When a vet checks your pets mouth they are looking for anything unusual or that might indicate an issue. This can include things such as:
- Excessive tartar build-up
- Periodontal disease
- Missing or broken teeth
