The doctor removes the tartar with a special tool. Afterwards, the gums must be treated with a solution of lye for a few days. To strengthen the gums, the vet may prescribe vitamin C and other remedies such as oak bark and leaf decoction or potassium permanganate solution.

Tooth decay

Over time, a hole develops in the tooth where food waste accumulates. Caries is treated by cleaning out the cavity and sealing it. Alternatively, if necessary, the whole tooth is restored from the filling. General anaesthesia is used for pain relief. However, in most cases, veterinarians do not repair the tooth, but extract it using dental forceps.


Another canine dental disease is pulpitis. This is an inflammation of the tooth nerve. It occurs when a caries infection invades the pulp of the tooth. The puppy’s tooth hurts a lot, he becomes restless and does not want to eat. The treatment is too complicated, soIt is advisable to remove the damaged pulpit tooth.

Oral diseases cause severe pain and are most common in animals that eat the wrong food and have a weak immune system. Therefore, owners must take care of their pet’s health by feeding it healthy food and taking it to the vet at least once a year to have its teeth examined.
