Mouth Problems In Dogs

Dogs can have some of the same problems with their mouths that humans can.  Ideally, you brush your dog’s teeth every day with special doggy toothpaste (don’t use human toothpaste, it is bad for dogs).  However, even with routine care, some dogs just have more mouth problems than others.  Smaller dogs have more trouble than big dogs.  It is important to take care of your dog’s mouth because mouth problems can cause pain, infections, organ failures, and even death.  Here are some common mouth problems in dogs and ways you can prevent them in your dog.

Most mouth problems can be prevented with vigilance and regular brushing.  Your veterinarian can show you how to brush your dog’s teeth properly and supply the doggy toothpaste and toothbrush you will need to do so.
