Dental Problems in the Young Dog
Many dogs do not have their dentition or the rest of their oral cavity checked by a veterinarian until they are a couple of years old. Normally it happens for the first time, when they are in for a routine health check and the vet looks at the teeth to check the periodontal status. But many oral conditions need treatment earlier in life. If left untreated these conditions can lead to more severe illness, that is in some cases irreversible. This webinar will introduce you to the things we should look for when inspecting the dentition of young dogs and give guidelines to when it is appropriate to recommend oral health check-ups. We look at the shedding of deciduous teeth, the normal occlusion compared to malocclusions, developmental disorders, hereditary dental diseases, trauma to teeth and other diseases. And I will give suggestions to diagnosing and treating the findings in an appropriate manner.
