Causes of dental problems


Early detection and treatment of pet dental problems are crucial to prevent severe problems and pain for your pet. Some of the same problems that pet parents experience that contribute to dental issues can also affect our pets including broken teeth, abscesses or infections of the tooth or root and periodontal disease.  Untreated periodontal disease can lead to more significant issues for your pet including kidney and liver problems and heart muscle changes.

You should have your pet evaluated by your veterinarian if you notice bad breath, broken or loose teeth, reduced appetite or refusal to eat, bleeding from the mouth or discolored teeth.
