February is pet dental health month. The care of your pet’s teeth and mouth can affect other areas of its health, including the loss of teeth, as well as heart, liver and kidney damage. A pet with dental problems may not want to eat, may have bad breath, may exhibit pain in the mouth area, may have excessive or abnormal drooling or bleeding and may have swelling on the face. Some pets may not exhibit any signs at all, yet have severe dental disease. Dental care is one of many reasons an annual exam is very important for your pet’s health.
