When you cuddle your pet, does he have bad breath?
If so, he may have a dental health problem ranging from tartar buildup, to gingivitis to more serious problems requiring dental extractions. Before you get to that point, consider planning a teeth cleaning for your pet. This is a procedure done in a veterinary clinic under general anesthesia to clean the surface of the teeth and under the gumline. Teeth cleanings are done more or less often according to the dental care that you do at home. You can give dental food approved for the reduction and prevention of tartar, you can brush your pet’s teeth once a day and give them treats or supplements that help prevent tartar. The more you do, the lower the risk of long-term dental problems.
