If you think your Brussels Griffon may have gingivitis or some other type of gum disease, call your vet to schedule an appointment. Only a veterinary professional can diagnose gingivitis in your pup. Signs of gingivitis in your Brussels Griffon may include excessive bad breath, inflammation, along with redness and swelling of the gums. Most of this is due to the build-up of plaque, which is food or other debris. Your vet will need to perform a physical exam on your Brussels Griffon as well as a dental exam to determine if gingivitis is present and if there are any other related illnesses going on in your pup as a result. Be prepared to describe any symptoms your Brussels Griffon may be experiencing including when the symptoms appeared and how long they last. Once a diagnosis is made your veterinarian Oconomowoc, WI will be able to prescribe the appropriate treatment.
