Is stinky breath making it hard to get close to your pet?
Despite what you may have heard, bad breath isn’t something that pet owners simply must learn to live with. To the contrary, it’s probably a sign that your pet needs to visit the dentist.
Without proper care, bacteria can built up in your companion’s mouth, eventually spreading through the bloodstream and potentially causing a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your pet’s life.
The good news is, with the right support, this is preventable.
The professional dentistry services at Animal Medical Center of Marquette include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions.
Some common signs of dental disease in companion animals include, but are not limited to:
- Bad breath
- Excessive drooling
- Dropping food
- Sudden disinterest in chew toys
- Loss of appetite
- Swollen or painful face
- Pawing at the mouth
- Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
- Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding
