Dental disease CAUSES PAIN AND DISCOMFORT.


Signs of oral and dental diseases in dogs and cats:

  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth or teeth that are discolored or covered in tartar.
  • Your pet shies away from you when you touch the mouth area.
  • Drooling or dropping food from the mouth.
  • Bleeding from the mouth.
  • Loss of appetite or loss of weight (this combination can result from diseases of many organs, and early veterinary examination is important).
