Signs your Bolognese may have Gingivitis

Did you know that gingivitis is one of the first signs of periodontal disease in dogs? If you suspect your dog has gingivitis or another type of gum disease, contact your vet right away for a checkup. The sooner the dental problem is identified and treated the sooner the healing can begin and further damage to the teeth and gums can be prevented. Common signs of gingivitis include extremely bad breath in your Bolognese or other canine breed. Halitosis is the medical term for bad breath in dogs. It does not usually pass with a few days, but is instead persistent and foul in odor. Other signs include inflamed or irritated gums. Your pup may have trouble chewing, swallowing, or even picking up food or toys with his teeth. If you notice any of these signs in your dog, give your Westminster, MD vet a call to schedule a checkup. Click this link to learn more:
