Dogs explore, eat and investigate with their mouths, so they are constantly exposed to various forms of bacteria each and every day. As dogs can’t clean their own teeth, it’s your responsibility as their owner to help to maintain their dental health. After all, a healthy pet starts with a healthy mouth. A daily oral care routine helps your pet live a long and healthy life.
Your dog's healthy gums and clean teeth contribute positively towards their general wellbeing. Bacteria associated with poor dog dental care can cause pain, discomfort and disease, meaning that your dog could struggle to eat or even enjoy playing fetch anymore – making a very unhappy pet! Bad breath caused by dental diseases will also make your dog less pleasant to be around, which is bad news for you too. What’s even worse is that if left untreated, poor oral hygiene could lead to health problems that can potentially cause damage to your dog's kidneys, heart and other organs.
We understand that as a loving owner you’ll want to avoid these issues at all costs and keep your dog as happy and as healthy as possible.
A daily canine dental care routine will not only help to keep your dog healthy and happy but also avoid any extra trips to the vets, which should be good news for both you and your pet!
