Senior German Shepherds And Dental Issues. The Impact of Bad Teeth and Gums Goes Beyond The Mouth

Updated: Aug 29

Dental issues can be a problem for senior German Shepherds, and the effects of poor oral care can be felt throughout the entire body. Like us, as our German Shepherds age, their teeth may start to wear down, and decay and gums may not be as healthy as they once were, which can lead to pain, infection, loss of teeth, and other health problems which can be life-threatening. Prevention is key, but sometimes you can do everything right, and your frosty muzzled fur friend can still suffer from dental issues.
