Signs of Dental Disease

Although pets are incredibly skilled at hiding signs of pain and illness,
a watchful eye can catch signs of dental disease before they progress too far.

Monitor your furry pal for the following signs of periodontal problems and schedule an appointment if you notice any abnormalities:

Red, inflamed gums

Bleeding gums

Brown or yellow tartar accumulation on the teeth

Bad breath

Stained, cracked, worn, or broken teeth

Fur trapped in the teeth

Pawing at the face, especially while eating

Reluctance to eat hard food or chew on toys or bones

Head-shy

Dropping food from one side of the mouth

The best way to regularly check your pet for signs of dental disease is through daily toothbrushing. We understand that is not always possible, but at the bare minimum, take the time to lift your furry pal’s lips once a week to check for red gums, tartar accumulation, or other problems.
