A thorough examination of the mouth is an important part of the general physical examination of the dog. Oftentimes localized disease processes are observed, and frequently symptoms or lesions of more generalized disease conditions are detected in this procedure. It is to the advantage of the patient, client and veterinarian that examination of the oral cavity be a part of every physical examination.
