Possible Treatment for Gingivitis in Dogs Like the Boxer

Did you know that research has found that more than 80 percent of pets (this includes Boxers) three years and older may develop some form of gingivitis in their adult years? If you suspect gingivitis in your Boxer, check for the following symptoms: red or swollen gums, inflammation, and irritated gums. Inflammation is especially present on the side of the gums facing the inner cheek. Call your vet to schedule an exam. If your vet concludes your Boxer has gingivitis then you should start taking steps to help fight the disease. For instance, try brushing your Boxer’s teeth at home on a regular basis. You should also schedule more frequent professional teeth cleanings with your vet. Other steps to take towards treating and reversing gingivitis include the possible removal of overcrowded teeth or baby teeth that are present in your adult Boxer. Routine cleanings may be scheduled every six months to a year. Learn more from your vets Lakewood Ranch, FL.
