How can poor dentistry affect my pet?
One of the biggest dental issues we see facing pets is dental disease, with 4 out of 5 pets being affected. The most common problems we see are cracked/broken teeth, plaque and tartar build up, tooth root abscesses and gingivitis (inflamed gums).
Symptoms to look for in your own pet may vary. We have put together the following list:
- Halitosis (bad breath)
- Difficulty eating or showing signs of pain, such as chewing only on one side
- Weight loss
- Excessive drooling or swelling on the face
- Rubbing or pawing their face
- Inflamed or bleeding gums
- Blood stained saliva
- Plaque and tartar visible
- Preferring softer food compared to their normal biscuits
If you notice any of these symptoms with your own pet, contact us for more advice and to get booked in with one of our vets.
