Gum disease can affect dogs of all ages and breeds. Whether your Cardigan Welsh Corgi is old or young, it’s important to keep a check on the health of his teeth and gums. Gum disease can sneak up on your pup with little to no warning. For instance, gingivitis is a type of gum disease that is most common in dogs. It causes inflammation and irritation. Chewing can be uncomfortable. If you notice your pup having trouble eating his food or you notice that his breath is unusually foul, then you should call your vet and schedule an exam as these could be signs of gum disease. One way to help prevent gum diseases like gingivitis from developing is to make sure you brush your pup’s teeth regularly. Just ask your vet for a dog safe toothpaste and a tooth brushing aid to use on your pup’s teeth. For more information, contact your vet Oconomowoc, WI.
