Dental Tips for Dogs
Keeping up with your dogs dental habits is very important; it can help prevent bad breath, gingivitis, and other nasty mouth conditions. Maintaining proper dog dental care can be both hard and easy depending on how you approach the situation.
1. Tooth Brushing
Maintaining a healthy mouth in your dog should start with healthy teeth; an excess of plaque on the teeth causes bad breath and tooth decay. The generic Petco Natural Tooth Paste is great for dog dental care and can be found at www.petco.com for $5.94.
2. Tooth Cleaning Utensil
In order to clean your dogs' teeth you need either a dog tooth brush (which should be gentle to allow cleaning of the gums) or a finger brush. Both products help remove excess plaque but the finger brushes are better for small dogs where maneuvering a tooth brush could be difficult.
Gingivitis in dogs is caused by weakened gums, having dogs chew on rawhide is a great way to keep the teeth and gums strong and healthy.
4. Check the Dogs' Teeth and Gums Regularly
Do at home inspections to check for irregularities in the dogs' gums and teeth, sometimes if they are not taken care of properly the teeth will rot out or the gums will get irritated. If you notice anything out of the ordinary it would be good to get a vet check up.
5. Tooth Paste
This should go without saying but if you try to cheap out and use your own toothpaste it not work and could make your dog sick. Dog toothpaste is designed with flavors the dog would like and should be non toxic for the animal.
6. Reluctance to Eat?
If your dog seems to be exhibiting any changes in their eating, such as eating much less, they could have a sign of sickness. If a dog has a rotten tooth or gingivitis they will not want to eat as it gives them pain, if your dog shows this sign then you should call the vet ASAP.
7. Visible Pain in the Mouth Area
If the dog is showing visible pain near their mouth they could have dental problems that should be checked out by the vet. Remember that if the dog has gingivitis or excess plaque it can be a very costly procedure for a full clean up at the vet.
8. Oral Rinse
Products such as Nutri-Vet Breath Fresh Oral Rinse are safe ways to kill germs in the mouth without damaging your dogs' digestive tract. This mouth rinse can be found at www.drugstore.com for $3.99.
9. Gum Brushing
Gum brushing can also fall into the tooth brushing category since it should be done daily-weekly depending on the level of plaque buildup and diet. Gum brushing with a soft bristled head can help prevent the onset of gingivitis and plaque buildup.
Many of us love to feed our dogs the food right off our plates because they like to eat; however a majority of the food is not good for them and can actually cause dental problems. Vegetables and unprocessed meats should be fine but consult your vet to find out what is okay for the specific breed of the dog.
