Periodontal and endodontic disease in a mandibular molar in a dog is shown here. This young dog underwent a thorough prophylaxis. The technician at the hospital does the majority of the prophy’s. They have no dental radiography. We visited and took full mouth radiographs. Once completed we asked the technician to comment on the oral health. No signficiant changes were noted, however look at the radiograph. Severe periodontal bone loss is present with profound periapical lucencies indicative of endodontic disease.
