Pet Dental Care is Important
If you do not take the time to care about your pet’s teeth and gums, there is a good chance that he will suffer from plaque and tartar buildup. Brushing is required to help keep the surfaces of the teeth and gums clean. If plaque and tartar buildup over time, they can become embedded under the gum line, which can develop into gingivitis. This condition is very uncomfortable for pets, as gingivitis can lead to tooth loss, inflamed gums, broken teeth, bad breath, and pain in the mouth. It can also lead to a serious condition called periodontal disease. When this disease occurs, your pet will require treatment to control it. It is the best interest of your pet’s health that you maintain a dental cleaning schedule to prevent these issues from happening.
What You Can Do At Home
You can brush your animal’s teeth with a pet toothbrush and toothpaste. These items can be acquired from a local pet supply shop. At first, your dog or cat may not be keen about having his teeth touched. But in time, your pet will get used to the sessions and allow you to brush more and more of his teeth.
You can also use tartar-control snacks, chew toys, and dental diets to help keep the teeth clean.
