Check Your Pet's Teeth and Gums

Please check your pet’s teeth and gums--especially if you have an older pet We went through quite a scare with our Legend who is 12 1/2 years old. Legend developed a swelling on his tooth which thankfully turned out to be a benign tumor called an epulis. We waited anxiously for his biopsy results and are so thankful. Older dogs can develop cancerous tumors in their mouth which can progress rapidly. It’s important to periodically look inside your pet’s mouth as they can have all kinds of issues ranging from infections to cancer. We are so grateful to Dr. Gordon and his team at Arch Beach Veterinary Hospital in Laguna Beach who made sure Legend was comfortable and took such good care of him
