Signs of Dental Disease

Many pet owners complain of bad breath in their pets, but that is only one sign of dental disease.

Pets, especially cats, are exceptional at hiding signs of illness or pain, and may suffer silently before you notice an issue. To prevent unnecessary pain and suffering in your beloved companion, keep a close eye out for the following signs of periodontal problems:

Bleeding gums

Red inflamed gums

Excessive drooling

Pawing at the mouth

Reluctance to eat hard food

Dropping food while eating

Brown or yellow tartar buildup on teeth

Bumps under the eyes on the muzzle indicating a tooth-root abscess has formed

Oral bacteria is harmful to your pet’s overall health, not just their mouth. As tartar accumulates, bacteria leaches into the bloodstream, attacking the heart and kidneys and leading to systemic infection. For professional pet dentistry in San Antonio, turn to the team at Huebner Oaks Veterinary Hospital to eradicate dental disease in your four-legged friend.
