Signs Your Pet Needs Oral Surgery


Your pet needs your care and attention, and they also need you to keep a close eye on their health. Their oral health is part of the important care that they need, as poor oral health can lead to other health issues as well. If you don't care for your pet's oral health, it can lead to kidney failure, heart disease, or liver concerns. Poor oral health issues can be prevented by brushing your pet's teeth and giving them proper food to eat and a healthy diet, as well as giving them treats and toys that can promote good oral health. You should also be taking your pet in for routine cleanings to help care for their teeth. If your pet has oral issues, there may be some signs that you can watch out for. Read on for some signs that may indicate your pet has some oral issues and needs oral surgery.

Your Pet Is Pawing At Their Face

If your pet is pawing at their face a lot, it may be because of an oral concern. Your pet may have an infected tooth or could have a dental issue that is causing them discomfort. Your pet could have pain from the tooth, and them pawing at their face is helping to alleviate this pain. Your pet may be pawing at their face or could be rubbing their face or muzzle on everything it possibly can to help with the pain. If you see your pet doing this, take a look in their mouth if you can, or get them to the veterinarian for help.

Your Pet Is Bleeding From The Mouth

If your pet is bleeding from the mouth often, leaving blood behind, it may be because of a tooth infection. Your pet's gums may be bleeding due to gingivitis. If your dog has this issue, take a look inside its mouth to see what is going on. If you see swollen, irritated gums, it could be gingivitis, and it needs to be tended to.

Your Pet Has Foul Breath

If your pet has foul breath, more so than normal, it could be a dental concern that needs to be addressed. Foul breath could also be a stomach concern, but it more than likely is caused by a dental concern. You should take your pet to the veterinarian for treatment that may be necessary.

If your pet has any of the above-mentioned dental concerns, it may need oral treatment or possibly oral surgery. You need to take your pet to the veterinarian for a diagnosis and treatment.

Talking About Pet Vaccinations

Hello, my name is Marissa. Welcome to my site about veterinarians. I decided to buy myself a puppy for the holidays. I searched my community for a breeder and picked up my puppy right away. Unfortunately, within a day, I noticed my puppy was not feeling well. The poor animal picked up a virus on the way home due to the lack of proper vaccinations. The vet was able to save my puppy and give her all the correct vaccinations. I will use this site to explore viruses and other conditions that vets prevent through precisely timed vaccination schedules. Thanks.
