Here at Blacks Vets, we understand that your pet’s dental hygiene is just as important as any other routine and preventative treatment. Like humans, pets can develop a build-up of tartar, leading to tooth decay and gum disease. Brushing your pet’s teeth once or twice a day is the best option for good oral hygiene.
Signs of dental disease in pets
- Bad breath (halitosis)
- Visible tartar build-up on teeth
- Red or inflamed gums (gingivitis)
- Discoloured teeth
- Loose teeth
- Bleeding from the mouth
- Slowness or reluctance to eat
- Chewing on one side of the mouth
- Dropping food from the mouth when eating
- Swelling around the mouth (from potential tooth root abscesses)
