Oral pathology is exceedingly common in small animal patients. This review describes a numer of selected diseases that are seen on daily oral assessment in every veterinary practice. Depending on the condition, a short summary is included of etiology, pathogenesis, clinical features, differential diagnoses, diagnostic tests, and if possible treatment/management. Persistent deciduous teeth, supernumerary teeth, intrinsically stained teeth, fractured teeth, abscessed teeth, luxated and avulsed teeth, feline tooth resorption, ‘missing’ teeth, oral neoplasia, caudal stomatitis, juvenile gingivitis and immune-mediated diseases are all discussed.
