Despite what you might think,
dealing with your dog or cat’s foul-smelling breath isn’t a normal part of pet parenthood.
Bad breath is actually a sign of periodontal disease, which affects most companion animals by the age of three. Periodontal disease usually begins with relatively minor symptoms, like stinky breath and tooth discoloration, but it quickly evolves into a much more serious issue. Without treatment, it can cause everything from tooth loss and difficulty eating to organ damage and premature death. We provide comprehensive pet dental care in Cincinnati right here at Mariemont Veterinary Clinic, and our team would be honored to be entrusted with caring for your companion’s pearly whites.
