Did you know?
Dental disease is one of the most common issues seen by veterinarians and in many cases can be prevented by ensuring your pet maintains good dental hygiene.
Small callout “Prevention is better than a cure”
Unfortunately, our little four-legged friends are unable to brush their teeth which means it’s our responsibility to keep on top of their dental health.
Common Signs of Dental Disease
- Smelly breath
- Tooth loss
- Red, swollen or bleeding gums
- Not eating
- Chewing on one side of the mouth
- Pawing at the mouth
- Excess salivation
- Accumulation of tarter around the gum line.
Things to help your pets’ dental hygiene
A quality food can prevent dental issues and support good dental hygiene. There are also more specialised ranges designed to help reduce plaque, stain, & tartar buildup.
Chew toys are a great way to make “cleaning teeth” fun for your dog! There are so many different toys to choose from and we are more than happy to help you find the right one.
We all know pets love a tasty treat or two. Not only do treats enrich our pets’ lives and reward good behaviour, but they can also have many health benefits including promoting dental hygiene.
Regularly brushing your pet’s teeth is one way of keeping them clean. We recommend introducing gently if your pet is not used to it. (This option may not be for every owner and their pet!)
We recommend regular dental check-ups with your trusted vet every 6 months.
