Find out your dog’s risk of gum disease

Did you know that four out of five dogs over three will develop gum disease in their lifetime? Luckily, it’s usually treatable if detected early, but prevention is always better than cure! Creating a good oral care routine for your pooch can help reduce their risk of developing problems with their dental health.

To raise awareness of canine gum disease and highlight the warning signs you should look out for in your dog, PEDIGREE® has worked with hundreds of vet practices to create a test to assess your dog’s risk of having gum disease.

It takes less than two minutes to complete and will give your dog a risk score based on over 1 million data points. Answer the question below to get started.

How old is your dog?
If you don’t know your dog’s exact age, an estimate will work just fine.
