Many illnesses manifest themselves with obvious symptoms. Ear mites and ear infections for instance, even at the early stages cause so much discomfort the scratching is nearly non stop. Injuries often result in limping or walking with one leg held up. Skin irritation can show with hair loss, reddening, blisters, pustules, or many other symptoms.
Disease and infection in the mouth unfortunately goes unnoticed. Maybe there was some initial loss of appetite due to pain and discomfort. Dogs learn to eat with the good teeth or simply swallow the kibbles whole. Maybe your dog has grown increasingly grumpy, despondent, or solitary. Chronic pain can rapidly deteriorate a positive disposition. Still many dogs even hide these symptoms. Bad breath is often the only perceivable sign.
While the symptoms are difficult to see, the damage is no less injurious. Infection from dental disease is a constant battle for the body’s immune system. Kidneys, liver, all of the body’s systems constantly trying to fight the infection and repair the damage. A comprehensive oral scaling, cleaning, and polishing is the only way to win the fight.
