Pet Dental Health
Neglecting your pet’s teeth can lead to devastating effects on your pet’s quality of life. The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) reports that 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have some sort of dental disease by the time they are 3 years old.
Symptoms of dental problems can be easily missed as they aren’t often exhibited until they are in advanced stages. One of the best things a pet owner can do to prevent dental health problems in their pets is to routinely check their teeth, gums and oral cavity. If left unchecked, bacteria that grow in your pet’s mouth can enter the bloodstream and cause even bigger health issues.
Signs of Dental Problems
When you’re checking your pet’s teeth, gums, and oral cavity, there are some things you can look out for. Some of the most common signs of dental problems in pets are:
- Red, inflamed gums
- Loose teeth
- Bad breath
- Difficulty chewing
- Pain when chewing
- Discolored teeth
- And, in extreme cases, your pet might stop eating
