Did you forget? You may not know that gum disease (periodontitis) can affect your pet. Many veterinary dentists recommend a full examination of the mouth when a pet is spayed or neutered. This is a great time to do the dental exam because the patient is already anesthetized. Dental xrays are also indicated and may reveal tumors of the jaw bones or other pathologies. Sorry, I know you love me, but I can’t treat your pet in my Long Island Dental office!
