Does your best friend have bad breath?

1/3

Despite what many pet owners may believe, “dog breath” is not just a nuisance – it’s a sign of an unhealthy mouth. Bad breath is caused by bacteria. Over time, bacteria leads to plaque and tartar buildup on your pet’s teeth. The result is bad breath and inflamed gums.  As dental disease progresses, other signs can include drooling, discomfort while chewing, and loose or missing teeth. Dental disease can even lead to heart and kidney failure over time.  Even if you’re using treats and chews to help control tartar, these are sometimes not enough to keep dental disease in check. Often, a professional cleaning, or scaling, of the teeth is needed.
