A dog’s dental health is very important to their overall health and wellbeing. Should your pet have bad breath, check first to ensure that their gums are not infected. Infected gums will not only cause bad breath, but it is also painful and could cause a problem to internal organs diseases to organs such as heart, kidneys, intestines and joints. These organs can be subsequently infected by the bacteria spread from mouth region. With regular dental care, you can prevent such serious side effects.
Tips on Your Pet’s Dental Care:
• Allow your pet to chew on raw bones at least once a month to prevent tartar build up. Regular chew on raw bones will avoid dental visits at the vet. Do not feed your dog cooked bones as bones cooked may splinter when chewed and can cause potential damage to intestinal linings of your pet. If your pet has never eater raw bones, monitor and ensure that they are able to handle it well and not swallow the bones whole which can cause chocking which is dangerous. Most dogs naturally are able to handle raw bones well. To be safe, get the huge beef or mutton bone where they cannot chew it down but use it for exercising the jaws and cleaning their teeth.
• If feeding your dog raw bones is not an option for you, go for dried bones variety instead and it is commonly found in pet shops. Ensure you purchase the huge mutton/beef bones that they cannot swallow.
• If you pet do not like bones, you will need to brush your dog’s teeth regularly at least once a day. Focus on the upper teeth as plaque tends to build up faster there. Best done when you first get your dog to get them accustomed to it.
• Healthy diet is necessary to build their immune system. Also note that crunchy snacks that may claim to have dental cleaning abilities, do not depend on this as it may not be that effective as eating such foods in the first place would cause build up of food bits stuck in the teeth.
• Visit your vet at least once or twice a year to check on your pet’s teeth before the build up becomes unmanageable. This should be done more frequently for older pets. I make use of my regular heartworm blood test to seek my vet’s help to do a general check up on my dogs and seek advice if I should get their teeth cleaned.
• If your pet’s breath is bad, place some colloidal silver water into their drinking bow. About 1 teaspoon to their water bowl should be sufficient. This will kill bacteria and germs in their dental region regularly before infection can occur. Visit your vet to ensure long term dental health.
• Supplement your dog with digestive enzymes to ensure healthy gastronomical tract.
If your pet already has an infection in their gums, please seek your vet’s advice immediately to get it treated. In severe cases, your pet’s teeth may need to be extracted. Adding colloidal silver water to your dog’s drinking bowl as well to expedite recovery and control the condition before.
