Sunday night ritual .. polishing those pearly whites and examining for concerns 😁
I cannot overestimate the importance of proper oral care for your doggo, especially as they age. It’s easy to overlook loose or chipped teeth, plaque, bad breathe, discolouration and more. However, if a periodontal disease is present these toxins will be absorbed into your dog's blood stream. The kidneys, liver, and brain filter the blood and small infections in the organs can occur as a result, causing permanent and at times fatal organ damage.
The best prevention is attention! For this reason we do our best to brush several times a week.
Ensure your dog’s oral care is maintained - this can be done at home but is critical to augment with regular professional care. Check their gums, teeth and overall mouth health regularly and address concerns with your Vet as soon as possible.
For more info on what to look for please consult your Vet.
Remember to use ONLY dog toothpaste, natural coconut oil works wonders too. Human toothpaste is toxic for dogs.
And, as heard in this video .. a little extra love and care for your ‘baby’ goes a long way to making teeth cleaning relaxing .. no matter what your husband says 😊
