Corinth Animal Hospital
While these furry pets can be low maintenance, they may have certain health requirements that need attention. If you have a feline friend at home or are thinking about adding one to your family, we recommend reading ASPCA’s article about general cat care for tips on how to best care for your fur baby.
Are dental problems the same in pets and people? No. In people, the most common problem is tooth decay, which, due to the loss of calcium from the enamel, results in painful infected cavities. In the dog, cat, and ferret, the majority of problems are caused by periodontal (gum) disease. In rabbits and rodents, most problems are caused by inappropriate diet and uneven wearing/overgrowth of their constantly growing teeth.
What is periodontal disease? This is simply inflammation or infection of the tissues surrounding the tooth. Accumulation of tartar (calculus) on the teeth contributes to gum recession around the base of the tooth. Infection soon follows and the gums recede. Untreated infection then spreads into the tooth socket and ultimately the tooth loosens and is lost. This infection also leads to heart and kidney disease as the infection enters the bloodstream and circulates the body.
