Dental disease is a common problem for many pets, including your dog. Without a routine of dental hygiene, your dog can be prone to all the complications associated with tooth and gum disease. Dental disease can also lead to medical issues affected by the bacterial growth within the mouth. This can turn fatal quickly. In order to keep up with proper dental hygiene, it is important to contact your local Rockford-area Veterinarian as listed below or one closest to your home for instructions on how you can ward off dental disease.
If you have a dog who is a real kisser in the family, you don’t walk to fall over in horror because of such foul doggy breath known as Halitosis. This is one of the signs that something serious is happening in that mouth. Of course your dog does not gargle like a human to rid that odor, and halitosis are more than odor; it is a sign of dental disease. The bad odor is caused by an infection, usually along the gum line that supports the structure of the teeth.
What happens is that plaque continues to build up on the teeth and gum line each day if not brushed away. The plaque then mineralizes and hardens within a couple of days, developing those unsightly brown, yellow or gray stains.
Other signs of dental disease include loose teeth, red inflamed gums, calculus on the teeth and tartar accumulation. Most pet owners are surprised as to the severity of dental disease in pets; something that can be prevented. The best way is by brushing your pet’s teeth at least 2 to 3 times a week; doing so can add years to your dog’s life.

Along with brushing the teeth, provide your pet with dental chew bones frequently each day to clean and remove plaque that leads to dental problems. Your pet will be happy and healthy, making for a happy pet owner as well.
