What is the most common ailment you see in your senior patients? What are some of the signs of this ailment and ways we can prevent it from occurring?
In my senior patients, a huge health concern that I see is dental disease. By the age of 3, most pets have dental disease. If left unchecked, it progresses, and by the time my patients are seniors, their mouths are in poor shape. The signs of dental disease are halitosis (bad breath), gingivitis (red or inflamed gums), and tartar/calculus (build-up on the teeth).
