Dog dental care
your vet if your dog has any of these problems –
red, swollen or bleeding gums
at mouth or face
breath all of the time
in eating habits or chewing
or brown tartar buildup on teeth or gum line
of appetite or weight
in the saliva
dental care will not only strengthen the bond you have with your
dog but you will soon learn to detect signs of unhealthy gums which
could be an indication of other and more serious impending health
problems. It is also very likely that your dog may never need a
vet dental if brushing is done thoroughly and daily.
chews and toys, hard biscuits and special dental diets can certainly
help maintain optimum oral hygiene but should not be considered
a reasonable substitute for daily teeth brushing. Traditional chew
toys such as dental chew toys, rope bone chew toys and edible dog
chews are designed to keep your dog engaged, with the added benefit
of cleaning the teeth. These toys will entice your dog into playfully
attending to dental hygiene.
They can also keep your dog entertained and out of mischief during
those times when you must leave your dog alone.
Bone Chew Toys -Try a dental rope chew toy for great flossing action.
As your dog happily chews on these toys the rope fibers clean between
the teeth. Spray on some dog dental care spray or rub on a little
flavored pet toothpaste to really enhance the cleaning action of
this enticing dental chew toy. Chewing on a cotton rope bone can
help clean those back teeth.
Chew Toys – For long lasting chewing fun, and a great dental workout,
get your dog a dental chew toy. Some dental chew toys can also be
stuffed with your dog’s favorite treats for hours of stimulating
chewing. And for smaller dogs there are dental chew toys that not
only have teeth cleaning grooves but also are combined with a rope
chew. Just add some pet toothpaste to the dental grooves and your
dogs will eagerly participate in their daily dog dental care routine.
Dog Chews – many pet shops and online stores now carry a variety
of composite chews. These all natural rawhide dog chews can’t ribbon,
are easy to digest and dogs love the baked in flavor. There is even
an edible dog chew treat available that contains no animal by-products.
sure to have your vet examine your dog’s teeth thoroughly on a yearly
basis. Get in the habit of looking in your dog’s mouth to check
for broken or cracked teeth.
let your dog chew on rocks, bones, cow hooves, or hard nylon or
ceramic bones. Safer chewing toys are those made of rubber, soft
rope bones, or bones that are soft enough to provide the necessary
chewing exercise without the possibility of breaking teeth. Rawhide
may be safe for chewing, but as it softens pieces can break off
and if inhaled, may cause your dog to suffocate. If swallowed, rawhide
can cause an intestinal blockage.
