Let's talk teeth
Working dogs are less prone to dental disease than the small white fluffies we usually see, however they can have problems with fractured teeth, either from stock work or chewing bones.
If tooth fractures expose the pulp (the red centre carrying the nerves and blood vessels) there is risk of infection which can occur weeks to months after the initial injury. Reluctance to eat, facial swelling, discharging wounds below the eye, and/or being head-shy can all be signs of teeth problems.
This August is dental month which means there is 20% off dental procedures all month - book in at Feilding or Taumarunui to get your best employee checked out!
