    BAD BREATH

    Montuiri Veterinaris - dental campaing

    Odi is an 4 years old male “ratero” who came to Algaida's clinic because he had something in his mouth, rubbed his mouth with his legs, drooled a lot and even his mouth has bleeding a little and had very bad breath!. He had had a similar problem four months before but not so serious and it had improved with the antibiotic.

    To explore his mouth we had to sedate him, because he was in pain. Odi had the gums and the inner face of the lips very red and with bleeding ulcers, the teeth had a little tartar. We do not detect any foreign bodies.

    As it had happened to him before, we proposed to do a cleaning of tartar and a biopsy of the gum. We performed a complete blood test and a chest x-ray, since during the examination we had detected a murmur in the heart. In this way we could assess his condition and the extent of his heart disease to performe an adapted and safe anesthesia. A test of leishmaniosis was also done, which was fortunately negative.

    Odi started with an antibiotic treatment and was scheduled for surgery a few days later to improve inflammation of the gums prior to surgery.

    On the day of the surgery, plaque was cleaned and gum samples were taken for biopsy. There was enough gingival retraction but the teeth were healthy and there was no need to remove any. After a few days with antibiotics the gum looked better and did not bleed.

    A week later the laboratory sent us the result of the biopsy, Odi's injury was chronic lymphoplasmacytic gingivitis. It is a chronic nonespecific inflammation of the gum and oral mucosa, the cause may be a reaction to tartar and bacteria in the mouth, but the cause can not always be found and the problem can be repeated.

    To treat it is recommended a good dental cleaning and antibiotics, after cleaning should maintain a good dental hygiene, with dental brushing and the application of disinfectant products directly into the mouth or the water they drink. In the most severe cases, treatment with anti-inflammatory or immunomodulators drugs may be necessary.

    Odi recovered very well after cleansing of tartar and antibiotic, but now should carry on with daily dental hygiene with a mouthwash and periodic controls to avoid relapses.

    XISPA HAS TOOTHACHE

    Veterinaris Montuiri - dental root abscess

    Xispa is a 9 years old dog that came to our clinic in Algaida because she has a swollen lump in her face. Xispa had not lost her appetite or felt ill.

    Her family had recently adopted her and they had noticed that she had a lot of tartar in the teeth.

    During the examination we detected an inflammation under the eye, which also affected the area of the nose. In the mouth there was a lot of tartar in the teeth, with retraction of the gums in the molars, which left the root of the molars in sight, and had already missed several pieces, especially incisors.

    The rest of the exploration was normal, Xispa had no fever and we didn’t detect symptoms of other diseases.

    We take blood to do a pre-anesthetic analysis, since we suspected that the problem was related to the teeth and it was proposed to do a dental cleaning.

    Before dental cleaning, antibiotic treatment was started to improve the infection and prepare Xispa for the day of the surgery.

    After two days with antibiotics the swelling of Xispa's face had disappeared. A few days later the cleaning of tartar was carried out and the tooth that had had the abscess was removed.

    TYSON HAS MOUTH PAIN

    Veterinaris Montuiri - feline gingivitis

    Tyson is a 14-year-old cat who came for consultation because he had not eaten for two days and had drooling. The owner had also noticed that he had not been grooming in days.

    During the examination we saw a strong swelling of the gums and lips. The mucosa of the inner face of the lips and gums were very red and ulcerated. Tyson was in pain and did not want open his mouth. He had no fever or respiratory signs, as nasal secretion or sneezing, or conjunctivitis.

    An antibiotic and anti-inflammatory treatment was started. After that the owner said that he had eaten a little after the anti-inflammatory but when the effect was gone he was in pain again. So we made an appointment for a dental cleaning and a biopsy of the gum.

    Before the surgery we performed a pre-anesthetic panel to assess if Tyson was able to undergo surgery, and a test of leukemia and immunodeficiency viruses, two viruses that alter the cat's defenses and favor this type of infection. In the case of Tyson the test was negative.

    In the case of animals, dental cleanings are performed under general anesthesia. Tyson had tartar on all teeth, but especially on the upper premolars, which are the largest back teeth. During the procedure, several samples of the gum were taken for biopsy.

    The day after the dental cleaning we re-check Tyson. He was more lively and had eaten a little, it seemed that he was not in so much pain and he was no longer drooling.
