Is stinky breath coming between you and your pet?
Contrary to popular belief, foul breath isn’t something that pet owners must simply learn to live with. In fact, it’s probably a sign that your pet is due for a dental visit.
Without proper care, your companion’s mouth can become a haven for dangerous bacteria, which can spread through the bloodstream and cause a variety 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 easily preventable.
The professional dentistry services at Clarington Animal Hospital include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions.
Some of the common 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
- Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
- Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding
