Common in both cats and dogs, periodontal disease is caused by a buildup of bacteria that destroys the cement that holds the teeth and gums together and, over time, causes teeth to fall out. Bleeding gums, bad breath, drooling, painful chewing signified by dropping food, loss of appetite and loose teeth are signs of periodontal disease.

Prevent periodontal disease by giving your pet a good diet and hard, durable toys to exercise its teeth on. If periodontal disease has set in, your veterinarian may advise corrective surgery. Recovery is painful and uncomfortable. Either the Echinacea Tea Treatment or Goldenseal Tea Flush can help a pet during the recovery period.
