KEEP THOSE TEETH SPARKLING WHITE: TIME FOR DENTAL CLEANING!
We always say “healthy mouth, healthy body”. This proverb also goes for Pets. Keeping your pet’s teeth clean will help keep your dog healthy. Dental problems are the most common ailments affecting pet dogs and cats.
Dental disease starts with the build up of tartar, resulting in bad breath and gingivitis (inflammation of the gums). Gingivitis affected gums bleed easily and can lead to serious health issues including infection, kidney problems, and heart disease. Halitosis (bad breath) is the most common sign of dental disease. It is caused by an infection of the gums and sometimes the other supporting structure of the teeth. Plaque builds up every day on the tooth surface including at the gum line. Without brushing, the plaque can mineralize or harden in less than 2 days.
The brown, grey or yellow staining commonly seen near the gum line is a sign of advancing problems. Other signs include gingivitis, loose teeth, tartar accumulation and calculus on the teeth.
It’s never too late to start improving your pet’s dental health and don’t forget, February is Pet Dental Month. We’d like to help your pet with a couple of easy tips, and we are trying to raise awareness and increase the number of pet owners that properly care for their pet’s teeth. This is truly a small investment in your pets’ health and longevity.
Some tips which you can do to help improve your own pet’s dental hygiene;
- regular brushing of his/her teeth
- correct choice of food
- regular check of oral cavity by lifting your pets lips or opening his/her mouth and check the oral cavity
- requesting a check up of the teeth at your Pet’s annual Vet Check
