Is bad breath driving a wedge between you and your pet?
Contrary to popular belief, stinky breath isn’t something that pet owners simply must learn to live with. In fact, there’s a good chance it’s a sign that your pet needs to visit the dentist.
Without proper care, your companion’s mouth can become a haven for bacteria, which can spread through the bloodstream, leading to a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your best friend’s life.
The good news is, with the right support, this can all be prevented.
The professional dentistry services at Lansdowne Animal Hospital include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions.
Some of the signs of dental disease in dogs and cats may include, but are not limited to:
• Bad breath

• Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
