The pet has red spots especially on the side of the gum facing the inner cheeks. Healthy pets' gums should be light pink in color. When there are red spots on the gums, it typically indicates that there is something wrong. The most common cause of red spots on the gums of dogs and cats is ingestion of such things as mouthwash, toothpaste, and sugar-free candy or gum, which can all be toxic to pets. However, another cause of red spots on the gums of pets is blood clotting disorders.
When adding a dog or cat to your family you want to make sure your pet is happy, healthy and protected. During its lifetime your pet is exposed to many illnesses and diseases and some breeds are affected by a congenital disease which is a condition existing at birth. At these moments when your pet is ill or maybe needs surgery, you want to be protected for the unexpected and high veterinarian costs.
