Bad Breath? Don’t Ignore The First Sign of Periodontal Disease

Bad breath in cats and dogs is caused by an overgrowth of bacteria. Without proper cleaning, bacteria will turn into plaque and tartar buildup on the teeth and gums which can lead to dental disease. When left untreated, dental disease can cause lasting, systemic effects on your pet’s internal organs, including the heart and liver, which can significantly shorten their life.

Even if you are using dental cleaning treats and chews, they are usually not enough to prevent dental disease. It is recommended by the American Animal Hospital Associates (AAHA) that pets be brought in at least once a year for a dental exam and cleaning.

Common Signs of Periodontal Disease

You'll want to be on the lookout for the following signs of periodontal disease. It's important to let your veterinarian know when you notice these symptoms in your own pet. They are as follows:

  • Bad breath
  • Bleeding gums
  • Blood in water bowl or on chew toys (after the age of teething)
  • Excessive drooling
  • Lack of appetite
  • Loose or missing teeth
  • Pain while chewing
  • Red gums
  • Swollen gums
  • Teeth discoloration

How Often Should I Have My Pet's Teeth Professionally Cleaned?

Regular dental cleanings are essential for maintaining your pet's oral health. We recommend scheduling a professional dental cleaning for your pet at least once a year. However, some pets may require more frequent cleanings depending on their individual dental health needs.

What to Expect at Your Pet’s Dental Exam

During a dental exam with one of our Liverpool Veterinarians, your pet’s teeth, gums and mouth will be thoroughly examined for any signs of plaque, tartar and dental disease. Following the exam, we will recommend a course of treatment which may include a more in-depth dental exam with sedation for advanced cases, a dental cleaning, teeth extractions, or options for at-home care.
