Nip It In the Bud

We love our pets. When they hurt, we feel their pain – although its cause sometimes escapes us. Next time Fido or Miss Kitty shows signs of distress, make sure a dental problem isn’t behind it. If Kitty or Fido eat only soft canned food, their gums don’t get massaged and tartar builds up.

Signs of trouble include –

  • Eating with cocked head (to avoid chewing on sore tooth)
  • Drooling while eating or resting
  • Discolored gums or teeth
  • Foul breath

Less detectable signs of oral trouble are –

  • Sores in the mouth
  • Excessive drooling
  • Blood in saliva
  • Red or swollen gums

A thorough tooth cleaning can be done by your Veterinarian and ought to be part of any dog or cat’s yearly checkup.
