Periodontal disease is essentially a gum disease which can be devastating to your dog’s mouth. Symptoms can include pain, inflamed gums, tissue destruction, bone loss and loss of teeth. Periodontal disease can also lead to other issues like diabetes and heart disease.

How Does This Affect You?

As you can imagine, once your dog has developed periodontal disease and will need continued treatment, cleanings and possibly tooth extractions, the costs can definitely add up. Especially, if you pet develops a secondary condition like heart disease or diabetes from periodontal disease.

The average vet bill for a periodontal disease can be costly.
