What's in Your Persian's Mouth?

Inflamed Gums

Your Persian's mouth can be much like a Petri dish, and as a Persian owner, you'd better be on your guard. Perhaps you've been unpleasantly surprised by a furry friend's pungent yawn blasting you in the face. Or maybe you've peeled back your Persian's lips at some point and discovered puffy, reddened flesh at the gumline.

Teeth & Jaw Problems

Despite their beauty, the Persian breed is susceptible to teeth and jaw problems. (Although, this can happen with other breeds as well.) Some would say that such problems are partly a result of Persian breeders striving to shorten the nose and retain the strong, deep jaw.
