Toothaches are no fun for anyone.

If you’ve experienced a toothache, you understand how excruciating that pain can be, but pets are masters at hiding pain. In fact, up to 80% of pets have dental disease by the age of 3, but they may not show any signs of discomfort or pain. To ensure your furry pal’s pearly whites remain in good shape, schedule regular pet dental care in Irving at Story Road Animal Hospital.

Signs of Dental Disease

Pets are incredible at hiding signs of pain, illness, or disease, and dental disease is no different.

Your furry pal may suffer silently before you notice a periodontal problem, so take the time to check out your pet’s mouth on a regular basis. You may notice the following signs of dental disease:

Bad breath

Red, inflamed, or bleeding gums

Excessive drooling

Brown or yellow tartar accumulation on the teeth

Cracked, stained, missing, or broken teeth

Dropping food while eating

Difficulty eating hard food or chewing toys and treats

Pawing at the mouth

Reluctance to be petted on the head

Other signs of dental disease can be more subtle, such as your pet sleeping more, being less active, and avoiding social interaction. At the first hint of an issue, contact us to get to the root of the problem.
