Does your pet have bad breath?

Signs include

  • Bad breath
  • Red gums
  • Problems eating/ picking up toys
  • Excess salivation
  • tooth decay/ tooth loss
  • Pawing at the month

  • Take advantage of food, treats and toys – look for specially formulated foods and treats for dental care. Chewing is a national way to remove tartar from the teeth. 
  • Check your pets mouth weekly for any of the signs of dental disease.
  • Brush your pets teeth – at least once or twice weekly. This should be park of your dogs routine. Only use specific animal toothpaste and never human paste.
  • Ideally start young, get your pet used to it before they are 6 months old.
