Symptoms of Dental Disease

Your pet depends on you as its primary caregiver. It’s easy to tell when your pet is feeling fine, but do you know what to look for in times of illness? When it comes to dental health, knowledge is the best prevention. Periodically, you should examine your pet’s teeth and look for any of the following symptoms:

    • Persistent bad breath
    • Sensitivity around the mouth or inability to close the mouth
    • Pawing at the mouth
    • Loss of appetite or reluctance to chew hard food or chew toys
    • Difficulty eating and chewing food
    • Bleeding, inflamed, or receded gums
    • Plaque (often not visible unless stained)
