General information on Periodontal Disease
Periodontal Disease is a disease of the gums and/ or teeth. This is caused by Gingivitus, decayed teeth, and/or broken teeth.
Symptoms of Periodontal Disease
The symptoms of Periodontal Disease are bad breath, swollen and tender gums, loss of appetite, excessive drooling, yellow-brown stains on the teeth where they meet the gums.
Treatments for Periodontal Disease
Take your dog for regular oral check-ups. Feeding mainly soft, canned food may adversely affect the teeth, so you should provide some crunchy food at every mealtime to help clean your dog’s teeth. Canine “dental toys” and raw meaty bones may also help to clean the teeth.
