Dogs that are ill with dental caries can become contagious, which can cause a severe reaction and result in severe pain and discomfort.
If that happens, it’s important to see a vet immediately.
Veterinary staff are trained to treat and monitor pets for dental carie and to take steps to prevent it from spreading to others.
A vet’s office may be able to perform a dental procedure to relieve pain or discomfort for a pet with caries.
If a pet has been seen by a veterinarian, they may be offered medication for dental pain, but they should not receive it without testing.
For other pet owners, this may not be an option.
They should call the local police or a vet to get help.
If you suspect that your pet has dental cariogram, contact the local authorities to report it.
There is a limited number of places in the U.S. that will accept dental cariers.
If your dog’s health is at risk, please visit a vet or pet food store to get more information about where you can get the dental carisogram you need.
