Dental disease is one of the most commonly diagnosed diseases in veterinary medicine and generally affects pets at some time in their life.
Here are some of the most common symptoms of dental disease we see in dogs and cats:
• Foul smelling breath
• Red and irritated gums
• Oral pain
• Tartar build-up
• Tooth loss
• Rubbing face
• Weight loss
• Systemic disease from bacteria in the mouth
If you suspect your pet has dental disease, it is important to have your pet examined by a veterinarian. Routine dental care or a dental cleaning under anesthesia might be recommended.
