Take our teeth for example. A little bit of regular health care from the beginning with teeth brushing, dental foods / treats, watching for signs and annual dental checks will save the treatment of advanced dental disease and organ diseases later on.
Your animal can’t tell you when their gums are hurting, but look for any of these signs of Dental Disease:
Yellow / brown crust on teeth,
Pawing or rubbing the mouth,
Tooth loss, drooling or… BAD BREATH!
Dental Disease starts with pain and discomfort, but then contributes to overall health problems and can lead to organ damage.
Bacteria from the mouth infection enters the bloodstream through the inflamed gums, impacting your animal’s heart, liver and kidneys.
It’s important to deal with all dental problems sooner rather than later… to prevent anything turning into Dental Disease.
