Tooth Abscess Among Dogs

As we all know, dogs need regular dental care too. Inadequate dental care can lead to gum infections in dogs. This video reviews tooth brushing and some of the symptoms associated with gum disease and tooth root abscess in dogs.

Many people assume that bad mouth odor is normal for dogs, but it is not; if their teeth are healthy, a dog’s breath should not be overly unpleasant. Check for problems by examining your dog’s gums. Just lift the lip and have a look, of observe the teeth and gums at the time of tooth brushing. If the gums bleed or look red and puffy, or recessed, it could be because of an undiagnosed infection.
