A dog’s bad breath isn’t only a sign that they may have gum disease; it could be a sign that something else is seriously wrong. Every dog owner should read this.
According to the American Animal Health Association, the main symptom that your dog is suffering from any sort of dental disease is bad breath. But here’s something that you and other dog lovers don’t know and which is really scary.
It is that gum disease is the number one illness that affects our dogs. Sounds a bit unbelievable, but it’s a scary reality.
“Unfortunately, other than bad breath, there are few signs of the disease process evident to the owner and professional dental cleaning. As a result, periodontal disease is usually under treated, and may cause multiple problems in the oral cavity and may be associated with damage to internal organs in some patients as they age.”
