Dental disease is the most common disease that we see in pets. Unlike humans, pets do not commonly get cavities but instead will develop an infection, which is a painful health risk to your furry friend. Is your pet overdue for a dental exam?

Common Signs of Dental Disease
Did you know that your pet's breath shouldn't smell?! Normal dog, cat, and ferret breath has little to no odor. Here are common signs of dental disease to look out for:
- Red, swollen, and possibly bleeding gums (more frequently along the cheek teeth, not the front teeth)
- Brown, grey, or black tartar on the teeth
- Bad breath
- Hesitation to eat hard food or treats
- Loose teeth or teeth falling out
Left untreated, dental disease can lead to heart, kidney, and liver disease. Bacteria can cause infection of the bones in the mouth, leading to jaw fractures.
