When to Seek Pet Dental Care

It’s important to be proactive about your pet’s dental health and watch for signs that they may need dental care. Some common symptoms of dental issues in pets include:

Bad Breath

Persistent bad breath can indicate dental disease or infection.

Difficulty Eating

If your pet is having trouble eating or chewing, it could be due to dental pain or discomfort.

Excessive Drooling

Increased drooling may be a sign of dental problems such as gingivitis or tooth decay.

Visible Tartar or Discoloration
