Dental Disease & Your Pet
As the most common disease among cats and dogs, dental disease, also known as periodontal disease, can have a major impact on your pet’s overall health. The signs of periodontal disease can be easy to miss, especially in the early stages, but leaving the disease unchecked for a long period of time can cause discomfort, pain, and even impact your pet’s quality of life.
Even the most attentive pet parents can miss the symptoms of periodontal disease. Keep an eye out for these symptoms:
- Blood in your pet’s saliva
- Difficulty eating
- Excessive drooling
- Loose or missing teeth
- Loss of appetite
- Unusually bad breath
Any of the symptoms listed above can be a sign of periodontal disease. If you notice more than one of these symptoms in combination, talk to your veterinarian right away. The earlier you treat periodontal disease, the better.
Like humans, the source of dental disease in pets is plaque, which is a bacterial film that grows on the teeth. In most cases, regular brushing is enough to dislodge plaque buildup, but most pets cannot brush their own teeth. There are a variety of toys and treats available to help your pets take care of their plaque problem. However, if you do not take proactive steps to battle the buildup of plaque, it can harden on the teeth, becoming more difficult to remove. This can also lead to plaque moving below the gumline, where it can cause infections or, in more severe cases, loose teeth, pain, and permanent damage to your pet’s jaw.
Fortunately, your veterinarian can help you and your pet battle periodontal disease at any stage. A professional dental cleaning involves putting your pet under anesthesia and then thoroughly removing plaque from your pet’s teeth. With our help, your pet will enjoy a healthy smile for many years to come!
