What are some items/symptoms I should look out for in gingivitis? I looked on the postings in the care and health board but couldn't find anything really specific. Thanks in advance!

We try to "brush" Bijou and Mika's teeth with this really soft rubber brush that you put over your finger and massage their teeth with. They don't seem to mind and you can do it while they are relaxing in your lap.

Needless to say, my poor baby is in a great deal of pain today.
