Trouble with Food?
Also, if your pet is having trouble eating their food, struggling to chew their food, is dribbling a lot, or has no appetite, book an appointment. They may well be sick, and your vet will find out and treat them, but it may also be a dental issue.
In extreme cases, your animal may require x-rays, an evaluation under anaesthesia and extractions. Think of what your dentist may have done for you in the past. It’s not that different in an animal.
Brushing Your Dogs Teeth
At home you can brush your pet’s teeth, daily or weekly, or as your dog allows. Sometimes, prevention is better than cure, and in the same way you vaccinate your pets, brush their teeth too. And get them their six monthly or annual check ups.
