The most common ringworm diseases in animals are gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) or periodontitis (inflammation of the gums, which also affects the supporting tissues of the tooth, the jaw). These pathologies are characteristic of both dogs and cats. Periodontitis can occur if gingivitis is untreated. Plaque is the most common cause of periodontitis. When plaque mineralizes, turning into calculus, periodontitis progresses rapidly.

There are also often problems with small breed dogs who do not lose baby teeth and have permanent teeth next to them. In order to prevent occlusion anomalies, permanent teeth from dislocating and inflammation from starting, milk teeth must be extracted.

If you feel an unpleasant smell from the jaws, if you notice increased salivation, difficulty in swallowing and chewing, you should visit a veterinarian, as these may be signs of gum disease, stone formation, or inflammation of the oral cavity.


  • Preventive examination of teeth and oral cavity;
  • Removal of dental plaque with an ultrasonic scaler (oral hygiene) and polishing;
  • Extraction of milk teeth;
  • Extraction of damaged permanent teeth;
  • Detailed consultations on dental care.
