    I can't tell if he has gingivitis yet, but he sure will if he doesn't get his teeth cleaned. He has quite a tarter build up. You need to get that taken care of soon.

    Good for you. One of my dogs has teeth that look just like the ones your dog has. He has an appointment with the vet too.

    By the way, this site may be called backyardchickens, but a lot of other critters show up here, too. Off the top of my head I have seen questions posted about goats, sheep, pigs, donkeys, mules, horses, ostriches, emus, parrots, guinea pigs, pet rats, pet mice, a lot of rabbits, chinchillas, cattle, dogs, cats, gerbils, ferrets, and I can't remember what all else. Posters have received good advice too. I am sure that whether you have an aardvark or a zebra, someone here can help you.
