Is Your Pet Due to Have Their Mouth Checked?

It can be difficult to know when your pet needs to have their teeth cleaned, which is why it’s important to schedule teeth cleanings regularly and provide routine at-home care. Regardless, there are symptoms and behaviors that may suggest your pet needs dental care, such as:

  • Bad breath
  • Drooling
  • Dropping food
  • Chewing on one side of their mouth
  • Avoiding chew toys or any tug-of-war games
  • Red, swollen gums
  • Rubbing or pawing at the mouth or muzzle
