Pups are Smiling for Dog Dental Month!

February 7, 2022

February is Canine Dental Month, one that sets out to emphasize just how essential dental health is for your pup. 

Your pet is wont to use their mouth a whole lot; eating, playing with toys, licking their favorite human in the world, and a whole range of other activities. Seeing how busy this mouth gets, it is, therefore, no surprise that a great deal of attention has to be paid to dental health. This article covers the importance of canine dental health:

Curbing Bad Breath 

Just like in humans, regular eating without proper mouth cleaning leads to a buildup of rotten leftover food which eventually begins to stink. Proper dental health eliminates these particles and has Daisy’s mouth smelling minty fresh. 

Avoiding Oral Pain 

Dental disease can cause your dog plenty of discomforts. Nipping this in the bud is a no-brainer and the key to this is providing adequate dental care to your pet. Ideally, an annual visit to the veterinarian to get their teeth professionally cleaned is recommended

Inhibiting Dental Disease 

Most dogs already have dental disease by the time they are 3 years old. This might be an occurrence that is quite difficult to prevent, however, proper dental care can prevent the disease from worsening. The following at-home care is recommended:

All of these products can be gotten from Petland stores or petland.com. 

Preventing Organ Damage 

Bacteria present in plaque upon entering the bloodstream can spread to the kidneys, liver, and heart. This condition which is referred to as bacteremia can result in organ damage and cause debilitating diseases. Adequate oral health helps rid Daisy of plaque buildup and therefore ensures general health. 

Conclusion 

One way to ensure the general healthiness of your dog is to maintain good oral hygiene. This singular action offers immense benefits both short-term and long-term.
