Anything but the Toothbrush! - How Dental Chews Simplify Your Daily Routine
Why do you brush your teeth?
It sounds like a silly question, but the answer is clear: to keep them clean and cavity-free. The importance of toothbrushing doesn’t end there—your dental hygiene is directly linked to your overall health, and the same goes for your pup. In fact, pet dental health is so important that the American Veterinary Medical Association dedicated an entire month to it.
We all know a neighbor, friend, or colleague with a dog experiencing bad breath, bleeding gums, or tooth issues. Unfortunately, poor oral health in pets is commonly overlooked as “just bad breath,” but this symptom signifies a deeper problem that needs your attention. Thankfully, you’re in the right place if you’re looking to learn what goes into a healthy smile!
So, when was the last time you brushed your pet’s teeth?
You know it’s important to brush them, but it seems like every glance at their toothbrush initiates an uncomfortable stare down—until they run away, tail tucked. Vets recommend a twice a day brushing regimen, just like people, but could you imagine repeating this uncomfortable situation more than once every day? Many can’t. In fact, about 70% of pet parents haven’t brushed their dogs’ teeth ever. These numbers are alarming, especially because poor dental hygiene can lead to periodontal disease.
If the words “periodontal disease” seem familiar, it’s likely because your dentist has an office lined with diagrams and warnings of this painful condition that affects 80% of dogs by the age of three. You read that right! A majority of dogs have experienced this irreversible disease with a hefty price tag. This leads us to prevention—the best way to ensure your pup stays clear of periodontal disease, which happens to be another reason we brush our own teeth.
We all want our pups to live happy and healthy lives free of dental disease, which is exactly why we reach for their toothbrush in the first place.
