My shorthaired pointer got a case of bad gingivitis. He lost a couple of back teeth because of it.This year i wanted him to get a dental cleaning and a vet.says his gums are bad again. Does this breed have this problem often? Is there any meds for it?

German Shorthairs as a breed do not have a significant health problems. The gingivitis could be an environmental condition based on the food its recieving and genitics could always play a part. All dogs should have adequate chew toys specifically for dental hygene and you could always offer them the greenies once in a while or a very hard milk bone with low ash.
