Your kitten lets you know a lot about how she’s feeling through the way she behaves. And where periodontal disease is concerned, it’s no different. So how does your kitten tell you that her teeth hurt? There are quite a few ways:
- Difficulty eating or chewing
- Excessive chewing
- Pawing at the mouth
- Reluctance to chew toys
Of course, a lot of these symptoms could mean any number of issues, so it’s always important to let a trained professional diagnose any problems your pet might be having.
