The term "dog breath" exists for good reason, and most pet owners can attest to the fact that it's a very unpleasant odor. You shouldn't just write off bad breath as normal for your dog or cat! Bad breath along with red gums and pus along the gum line can all lead to more serious and painful problems in your best friend's mouth.
The American Veterinary Dental society reports that 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have some form of oral disease by three years of age.
The statistics above are significant because bacteria in the mouth can get into the bloodstream and cause problems in the heart and other vital organs like the liver and kidneys.
Infected, worn or broken teeth are also painful for pets. Unfortunately, our pets are masters at hiding their pain and often owners are not aware that their pet is uncomfortable. Many pets will eat and act normal even though they have a toothache.
Here are some subtle signs that your pet may be experiencing oral pain:
*Broken, loose or discolored teeth
*Bleeding from anywhere in the mouth
*Frequently dropping food during meals
*No longer showing interest in favorite chew toys or rawhides
*Drooling or pawing at the mouth
