More than 85% of dogs and cats older than four years have periodontal disease. Long standing, untreated dental disease can cause

 significant damage to other organs and generalised ill health. 

Signs of pet dental disease include:
  • Red and/or puffy gums
  • Bleeding gums
  • Increased salivation
  • Missing and/or loose teeth
  • Reluctance to chew or crying out when chewing
  • Anything else about the mouth that appears unusual

If your pet is showing any of these signs, please call and make an appointment for a dental check. If the vet finds that the problem is only mild, you may be able to take care of your pet's dental needs yourself by doing something as simple as changing your pet’s diet or by starting a program of regular teeth brushing. On the other hand, if the dental problem is severe, your vet may have to do a thorough cleaning, or extraction of severely diseased teeth.
