Dental disease is the most common health problem in pets, often being present from a surprisingly young age. Animals are experts in the art of hiding pain and discomfort.
We have seen many cases over the years where owners were blissfully unaware that there was a problem. It’s worth checking your pets mouth regularly – just lift their lips, you don’t have to make them ‘open wide’! Gums (especially where the gums meet the teeth) should be salmon pink and not red.
The smell should be relatively inoffensive!
Brown deposits (tartar) on the teeth, red gums or bad breath all can indicate problems. We offer free nurse dental checks and have many of years of experience in dental work so can offer expert on advice on the best course of action for your pet.
