What is Dog Dental Care?
Dogs just like humans need regular care and maintenance of teeth and gums to ensure healthy, long lasting teeth and overall wellness. A common misconception among owners is that because their dog chews on toys, treats, and occasionally things they should not, their teeth get a good enough cleaning. This is just not so. Your dog’s teeth need proper care and cleaning on a regular basis.
Good oral health takes conscious effort for dogs just as much as it does for humans. Think about it: you chew your food, your fingernails, gum, and even your pen tops everyday, but that does not clean your teeth or freshen your breath. If you don’t clean your teeth, tartar builds up causing gum irritation and bad breath (better known as gingivitis), which will eventually cause tooth decay and tooth loss.
