  • Look After Your Pet,Starting From His Teeth

    When you think about your dog’s overall health, don’t neglect his mouth. Canines can develop gum disease, just like humans, and you’ll want to make sure that your pooch has a smile that he can be proud of. Regular home inspections, providing chew toys and providing a healthy diet and snacks and help reduce the likelihood that your dog will be end up with a serious dental health issue that could lead to loose teeth or even tooth loss.

    1. Examine your dog’s teeth and gums regularly.
    Once a week, take a close look at your dog’s gums and teeth. If you are familiar with how they normally look, it will be much easier for you to know when something is amiss. With your dog facing you, gently lift his lips and take a look to at his teeth and gums. The teeth should be free from any brownish tartar, and the gums should be pink; if they are red or white, it indicates a problem.

    As long as you are getting up close and personal with your dog, take a sniff of his breath. Doggie breath isn’t meant to be really sweet smelling, but if it really knocks you over and your pooch isn’t eating or is throwing up, drinking or urinating more than usual, you should take him to the vet to get checked out.

    2. Give your dog chew toys to help keep his teeth strong.
    Chew toys are a great choice for your pet for a couple of reasons: they help to satisfy his natural urge to chew, and they give his gums a massage and keep his teeth clean by scraping off tartar. Your veterinarian can recommend some good brands of nylon, rubber and rawhide chew toys for your pet.

    3. Make sure your dog has a healthy diet.
    Your vet can also recommend a dry food that can help to combat plaque and tartar on your dog’s teeth. Instead of feeding your dog table scraps, make sure you give him treats that are formulated to keep his teeth healthy.
