Is your pet’s stinky breath becoming a serious problem?
Contrary to popular belief, bad breath isn’t something that pet owners simply must learn to live with. In fact, there’s a good chance it’s a sign that your pet needs to visit the dentist.
Without consistent care, your companion’s mouth can become a haven for bacteria, which can spread through the bloodstream and cause a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease could even shorten your pet’s life.
The good news is, with the right support, this can all be prevented.
The professional dentistry services at Arapahoe 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
- Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
- Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding
