Nicos' owner brought him in to see us a couple of weeks ago, after noticing that Nicos' breath was very smelly and he was struggling to eat his food.
When examining Nicos' mouth, Chris found severe dental disease. Nicos' mouth was full of infection and the majority of his teeth were loose and falling out.
This would have been extremely painful and explains why he was having trouble eating.

Years of never brushing their teeth leads to tartar and bacteria build up in their mouths. Not only can it cause smelly breath and pain, but if left untreated, the bacteria can spread into the bloodstream and affect other things like the kidneys, liver and heart.
