Quality Pet Dental Care in Marble Falls
Dental health is a vital aspect of pet health care. Sadly, many pet parents neglect their pet’s teeth, unaware that avoiding regular teeth cleaning will cause their pets a world of discomfort in the future. Indeed, a pet with bad breath is the first real indicator that something is not right.
Morning breath is one thing, but chronic foul-smelling odor emanating from a pup is cause for concern.
Indeed, around 80% of pets above the age of three are already well on their way to developing periodontal disease, and worse yet, a severe mouth infection caused by gingivitis is not only unhealthy for your dog’s oral hygiene but their whole body.
Germs can spread from the original location of the infection (the oral cavity) through the bloodstream and into the body. Pets with severe dental conditions are at a much higher chance of suffering other internal maladies and ultimately a shorter life.
Some of the most common signs of dental disease include the following:
- Regularly dropping of food from the mouth
- Consistent hard food avoidance
- Bleeding and inflamed gums
- Visible black or brown tartar coating the enamel
- Awful breath
If you see any of these signs in your pet, don’t hesitate to reach out to Hope Animal Clinic for quick and skilled care.
