It's time to lavish some attention on your pet's pearly whites! It is important to take proper care of canine and feline teeth. If left untreated plaque and tarter buildup can progress to painful periodontal disease, which can further spread to organs and cause illness. Brush your pet's teeth or use an all natural dental treat designed to break down tarter.
Healthy teeth and gums in your dog or cat begins with good quality nutrition that offers optimum ‘gut’ health, make sure the diet you feed offers pro & pre-biotics. Having a healthy gut can actually be the first defense to healthy teeth and gums and fresh breath.
Brushing is a second defense, while this can be a challenge with many a for footed friend, it is an important part of their hygienic routine. Raw (not cooked) real bones offers a great opportunity for your dog to gnaw away plaque.
Beware of some commercial treats that claim to benefit teeth and gum health. Their unhealthy ingredients and cooking processes can cause other health problems and an unhealthy gut. Marketing does it again! Do your homework and shop for your pets products in a reputable small business pet food store to ensure you are buying treats that actually work and are healthy for your pet.
