It's estimated that 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats show signs of oral disease by age 3. This can be painful for them if left untreated and expensive for you.
Keep an eye out for the following signs of dental issues:
Smell: Bad breath
Sight: Discolored teeth, drooling, red, swollen, possibly bleeding gums.
Behavior: Hard time eating and or dropping food.
Facial Symptoms: Periodontal disease can cause symptoms in places other than the mouth. Facial swelling or discharge from the nose can be symptoms of peridontal disease.
If you notice any of these signs of poor dental health, contact us today to schedule a dental visit.
