Suddenly, Rover—or Fluffy—is grumpy, withdrawn, not eating.
The root cause could be dental—and treatable. Imagine what it might be like to have a raging toothache, and not be able to communicate your problem to those who could help.
Some symptoms to watch out for which indicate you need a visit to the veterinarian:
- Mouth sores
- Excessive drooling
- Blood in saliva
- Loss of appetite
- Red gums
- Yellow/brown-stained teeth
- Cocking the head to avoid chewing on the sore side
- Foul breath
Get a regular dental check for your pet. Both of you will be happier for it!
