February Is Pet Dental Month
Why It Is Important To Keep Your Pet's Teeth Clean
Why is it important to keep your dog's teeth clean? 80% of dogs have dental disease by age 3. That's a pretty staggering statistic. It's actually the most common disease seen in dogs.
And not only is it common, canine dental disease can turn into serious health problems later in life.
Dental disease has many causes. Diet is a huge component, but it's not the only component ... genetics, inflammation, infections, medications, and a lack of dental care may also be contributing to its development.
If left untreated, dental disease can not only lead to bad breath, but to more serious health issues. These include, but are not limited to tooth abscesses, infection of the bone, jaw fractures, damage to heart valves leading to heart failure, liver and kidney damage.
3 Ways To Improve Your Pet's Dental Health
Add Fresh Food To Your Pet's Diet (Tripe, Goat's Milk, Raw Food)
Fresh food filled with live enzymes help keep tarter at bay.
Add Raw Bones And Other Safe Digestible Chews To Your Pet's Diet
Raw bones are nature's best toothbrushes. Raw bones naturally scale away tarter & plaque from teeth. Only give raw bones. Cooked bones can splinter and are less digestible.
Other chews that can help keep teeth cleaner are digestible chews like bully sticks.
Add In An Enzymatic Teeth Cleaner To Your Pet's Daily Routine
One that we confidently recommend and use with our own pet's is a product called Petzlife. It is very easy to use and It includes only natural antimicrobial ingredients. Petzlife not only removes tarter and plaque, but also prevents it. It is available in a spray and a gel. You just place a small amount in the pet's mouth. It works with the saliva to break down the bacteria that bind the tarter and plaque together.
AND, this month save big on this product (see February Specials below).
The bottom line is that your pet's dental care should not be taken lightly. Dental care is not only good for the teeth and mouth, but also for their overall health!
