Discolored Gums

Teeth and gums have another color than usual, when a pet has discolored gums it is often caused by the blood flow being blocked. This discoloration on your pet's gums could be a symptom of a dental disease or condition. Healthy gums have a salmon pink color, but may turn darker by a lack of blood, which can be caused by a trauma or infection. It is advised to consult a dental specialist or a veterinarian to determine the cause.
