Pet dental care can have a serious impact on your pet’s overall health. Over time, if left untreated, dental disease can have an effect on organ health, including the heart, liver and kidneys.
Signs of dental disease that you may notice include:
- Bad breath
- Yellow, brown, or discolored teeth
- Loose teeth
- Red, inflamed gums
- Decreased appetite
- Dropping food while eating
- Not playing with toys as often
Dental health is definitely an example of prevention being the best medicine. At Charm City Veterinary Hospital, we evaluate each patient’s teeth during their examination. Based on the examination findings, the veterinarian may recommend a dental cleaning or an oral care routine to prevent advancement of dental disease.
