4 easy steps protect your pet’s teeth

Posted by petsavenuevet on Jaunary 21, 2015 in Dental diseases and preventive care | No Comments

Do you know that it is not uncommon for pets to suffer from dental disease? The good news is, it can be prevented! Just like us, your pets require adequate and proper attention to their teeth. You can easily help your pets maintain good oral hygiene by adopting these simple home-care approaches.

 

1) Brush your pet’s teeth everyday

While it may seem like a daunting task at first, you simply need to introduce the activity gradually and make the experience a positive one for your pet. Patience, the right tools and guidance from your veterinarian can get your pet accustomed to it in no time.

2) Take your pet in for regular oral checkups

Your veterinarian will perform a thorough check on your pet’s dental health and take appropriate measures.Although brushing can remove plaque, it cannot remove tartar. If your pet has tartar, your veterinarian will remove it with professional cleaning and polishing.  You will also be given information on home-care and follow-up.

3) Offer safe treats and toys for daily chewing

This can help prevent gum disease by removing plaque and stimulating the gums. Look for treats and toys that are not hard, like rubber balls or rawhide strips.

4) Provide a good quality diet

Feed your pet dry food instead of moist, canned ones. Dry food can help to remove plaque and stimulate the gums through exercise.  There are also foods that have additives that prevent plaque from hardening.
