Why take care of dog teeth?
Since childhood, we have been trying to maintain dental health, and for this we regularly visit the dentist, because timely treatment will help to avoid not only the appearance of painful sensations, but also significant material costs. In turn, dog teeth also need regular care.
Let’s look at the most common diseases of the oral cavity in domestic dogs and find out why this happens.
Dental plaque is one of the most harmless diseases and with timely care for the teeth of the animal is easily cleaned at home.
Tartar is a consequence of the accumulation of plaque on the teeth. Getting rid of stones is somewhat more difficult. The presence of tartar on the teeth not only does not look aesthetically pleasing, its development contributes to the formation of growths near the gums and can lead to tooth loss.
Gingivitis is also quite common among dogs as an independent inflammatory process or a consequence of the neglected development of tartar.
In addition to the fact that these diseases are visible externally, they also, in most cases, provoke the appearance of an unpleasant odor from the dog’s mouth.
Why do dogs often have the above diseases?
Of course, a factor such as genetic predisposition contributes to the development of these diseases. But in most cases, poor plaque, complete absence or untimely hygiene (toothbrushing) leads to plaque, stones, unpleasant odors and inflammatory processes.
Yes Yes! Do not neglect these procedures, because following simple dental care recommendations will help to avoid the appearance of more serious problems of the oral cavity (including tooth loss).
Dog Oral Disease Prevention
The simplest and at the same time the main means of prevention is the organization of proper nutrition of the animal, since most often problems with teeth are observed in dogs whose diet does not have enough solid food or unwanted food is added to dry food from the table. It can also be improperly selected according to the size and characteristics of the animal diet.
It is also recommended to give the animal treats marked “Dental”. This type of goodies has a composition and texture that helps eliminate plaque and bad breath.
Dog oral hygiene
To maintain a clean and healthy oral cavity, dogs must brush their teeth with a special toothbrush and toothpaste specifically designed for dogs.
But what if the animal is not particularly happy with such an intervention, and each procedure becomes a real test for the owner?
There is an exit! Just buy your pet a toy (similar to a toothbrush) Petstages Finity Dental Chew. Such an acquisition will help you save a lot of time and nerves, and most importantly – the animal will definitely remain enough, and the teeth will remain clean.
The Petstages Finity Dental Chew toy brush is highly durable and allows the dog to fully satisfy the need for chewing. Due to the special shape and rubber incisors of various sizes located on the surface, chewing toys will be thoroughly massaged during chewing and plaque will be effectively cleaned. Another toy with a vanilla aroma is a good way to get rid of the unpleasant smell from the mouth.
For best results, apply the dog’s toothpaste to the triangular green area of the toy and let the dog chew.
As you can see, maintaining the health of your dog’s teeth and gums is not so difficult! And most importantly – the above measures will help to reduce the number of visits to the dentist, material costs and save your time.
