Is bad breath making it difficult to bond with your pet?
Contrary to popular belief, stinky breath isn’t something that pet owners simply must learn to live with. In fact, it’s probably a red flag that your pet needs to visit the dentist.
Without proper care and attention, your companion’s mouth can become a haven for bacteria. Over time, this bacteria can spread through the bloodstream, causing a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your best friend’s life.
The good news is, with the right support, this can all be prevented.
The professional dentistry services at Taylorsville Veterinary Clinic include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions.
Some of the common signs of dental disease include, but are not limited to:
- Bad breath
- Excessive drooling
- Dropping food
- Sudden disinterest in chew toys
- Loss of appetite
- Swollen or painful face
- Pawing at the mouth
- Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
- Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding
