Is bad breath coming between you and your pet?
Contrary to popular belief, foul breath isn’t just something that pet owners must learn to live with. In fact, it’s probably means your pet could use to visit the dentist.
Without proper care, your four-legged friend’s mouth can become a haven for bacteria, which can spread through the bloodstream and cause a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your pet’s life.
Thankfully, with the right support, this can all be prevented.
The professional dentistry services at Richmond Veterinary Clinic include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions.
Some of the signs of dental disease in companion animals include, but are not limited to:
- Bad breath

- Dropping food
- Sudden disinterest in chew toys
- Loss of appetite
- Swollen or painful face
- Pawing at the mouth
- Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
- Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding
