Dental Attention! Free dental check month!

For the staff at Howard springs veterinary clinic, it is still amazing how often it comes as a surprise to a pet owner that their pet needs dental care. Over time we have seen some horrible mouths *some not so horrible* while examining dogs, yet the owner never suspected that there was a problem. This included pets that we could pick out with a problem the moment it walked into the room!!

To be honest, the public awareness has gotten much better over time. Most vets will discuss dental health at anual check-ups, many clients we see look at their dogs teeth on a regular basis; some even brush them! There are several dog foods that were developed specifically to keep teeth free of tartar. These diets are nutritionally balanced so dogs can be on them for years.

Even with all of this, we still find ourselves pointing out bad mouths to unsuspecting owners. In most cases there were telltale signs that the owner did not pick up on.

The most obvious sign is Bad Breath. The plaque and tartar that develops in dental disease is a carpet of contaminated waste produced by bacteria *yep the B word* that grow in the mouth and break down food. Most people recognise that rotten food stinks, and do something about it. When that same smell comes from their dog's mouth, they pass it off as "dog breath" and say it is normal.. Well all I can say is "if it smells like a week old garbage, then it is not normal!". After all puppies dont have bad breath, and neither do dogs that have their teeth brushed.

The second sign may be a change in appetite. Anyone who has had a serious cavity and then eaten ice cream or hot soup can attest to the fact that a bad tooth makes it hurt to eat. Every tooth in your dog's mouth has a nerve in it. When the tooth is damaged by dental problems, that exposes the nerve to damage. The food your dog loved for eight years now hurts to eat. You may see him eat slower, drop pieces of food while eating, or stop eating entirely. If given a different, softer food, the dog may regain its appetite.

In more severe cases of dental problems, some owners report noticing their dogs rubbing at their faces. Usually, this only occurs when at least one of the teeth has had bacteria get into the roots and form an abscess. The dog is rubbing its face because it hurts, the dog wants the tooth to fall out or at least stop hurting.

If you are seeing any of these signs or anything else abnormal please let your vet at howard springs veterinary clinic know! You may be surprised just how much better your dog will feel after!!!
