Is bad breath coming between you and your pet?
There’s a rumor going around that stinky breath is something that pet owners must simply learn to live with. To the contrary, it’s probably a sign that your pet needs to visit the dentist.
Without proper care, your pet’s mouth can become a haven for bacteria, which can travel through the bloodstream and cause 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 is preventable.
The professional dentistry services at Good Friends Animal Hospital include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions.
Some of the signs of dental disease in companion animals 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
- Discolored, broken, loose or missing teeth
- Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding
If you notice any of these signs, it’s time to schedule an exam. We’ll identify the problem and address it quickly, improving the prognosis for your loved one. We’ll also show you ways that you can help keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy and disease-free year-round.
You deserve to enjoy lots of close snuggles with your four-legged friend. Our comprehensive dental services can help get you there!
