Signs Your Pet Needs a Dental Check-up


Bad Breath

Persistent bad breath is often a sign of dental issues. If your pet's breath consistently smells bad, it may be due to the buildup of bacteria in their mouth.


Difficulty Eating

If your pet is having trouble eating, dropping food, or chewing on one side of the mouth, it could be a sign of dental pain or discomfort.


Visible Tartar and Plaque

Check your pet's teeth for any brownish-yellow tartar buildup, especially near the gum line. This can lead to gum disease and other dental problems.


Bleeding or Inflamed Gums

Red, swollen, or bleeding gums are signs of periodontal disease. Check for any signs of bleeding or inflammation in your pet's mouth.


Loose or Missing Teeth

If you notice any loose or missing teeth, it could be an indication of advanced dental issues that require immediate attention.


Behavioral Changes

Pets in pain often display changes in behavior. If your pet seems more irritable, withdrawn, or reluctant to play, it could be due to dental discomfort.

If you notice any of these signs, it's important to consult your veterinarian. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings can help prevent serious dental problems in your pet.
