English term or phrase: Enlarged Gum Tissue
Enlarged Gum Tissue

Gingival hyperplasia refers to when an animal's gum (gingival) tissue becomes inflamed and enlarged. Enlargement is typically caused by dental plaque or other bacterial growth along the animal's gum line. In many cases, this can be prevented with good oral hygiene habits. This enlargement is typical in dogs and rare in cats. While it can occur in any breed, Boxers, Great Danes, Collies, Doberman Pinschers, and Dalmatians are more prone in developing the inflammation.
