In our last post, we talked about a case study where a pet had facial swelling and decreased appetite. Here are two pictures that demonstrate a similar case where a lump appeared on the pet’s muzzle, almost overnight! After examination, she was diagnosed with a tooth root abscess that formed from the infection in the pet’s mouth. The good news is this sweet girl was treated and is back to normal! In most cases, dental problems are preventable with the proper dental care both by the owner at home and in our animal hospital.
