Dental health is a very important part of your pet's overall health, and dental problems can cause, or be caused by, other health problems. Your pet's teeth and gyms should be checked at least once a year by your veterinarian to check for early signs of a problem and to keep your pet's mouth healthy.
Have your pet's teeth checked sooner if you observe any of the following problems:
-broken or loose teeth
-extra teeth or retained baby teeth
-abnormal chewing, drooling, or
dropping food from the mouth
-reduced appetite or refusal to eat
-pain in or around the mouth
-bleeding from the mouth
-swelling in the areas surrounding
Some pets become irritable when they have dental problems, and any changes in your pets behavior should prompt a visit to your veterinarian. Always be careful when evaluating your pet's mouth, a painful animal may bite.
