How to Spot Dental Disease in Your Dog
Being aware of dental disease signs is crucial for dog owners. As our furry friends cannot communicate their pain, we must remain vigilant. Regular dental check-ups are imperative, but there are also specific symptoms to watch for between visits:
- Bad Breath: Exceptionally foul-smelling breath can be an indication of dental disease.
- Plaque and Tartar Build-Up: Look for brownish-yellow deposits along the gum line - this is tartar, which can lead to severe dental issues if left untreated.
- Red, Swollen, or Bleeding Gums: This could signify gingivitis or periodontal disease.
- Difficulty Eating or Dropping Food: If your dog struggles to chew or drops food while eating, they might be experiencing dental pain.
- Excessive Drooling: An excessive or sudden increase in drooling could indicate dental issues.
- Pawing at the Mouth or Face-Rubbing: Frequent pawing at the mouth or rubbing their face could signal oral discomfort.
If you spot any of these signs, don't wait for your dog's next scheduled check-up - get in touch with us to schedule a dental exam. Regular professional cleanings and attentive at-home care can prevent most dental diseases, contributing to your dog's overall health and happiness.
