How Dental Care is important for our dogs and cats?
Dogs and cats dental care is just as vital for our pets as it is for us. Regular care ensures that dental problems do not develop further and prevents stressful and expensive treatments from the vet.
85% of dogs (especially in small breeds) over the age of three have tartar. Cats can also suffer from this. Good hygiene is necessary here. Brushing the teeth is a solution. For owners and according to the recommendations of animal care professionals, dental care has become just as important as any other care or treatment (cutting the claws, brushing, general inspection of parasites, care of eyes and ears, etc.). Brushing teeth can remove 50% of the plaque on average, and that is not negligible. But brushing teeth is not immediately a source of pleasure. Some dogs or cats are willing but others are not at all!
What is “dental plaque” and why we need to remove it ?
Dental plaque consists of a soft layer of bacteria and sugars that accumulate from saliva and food. Dental plaque usually occurs around the gums, but can also occur in other places, especially if they are difficult to reach through the tongue. If plaque is not removed, it forms a hard layer: tartar. Dental plaque can develop further everywhere in tartar. Tartar cannot be polished away but must be removed by the veterinarian. When tartar and plaque occur, there is not only the risk that the dog or cat will get bad breath (halitosis). It can also cause other, more serious complications. Such as periodontal disease, gingival pain, dental calculi etc…
Brushing teeth are very difficult because animals don’t like that and they bite us. Also, teeth scaling is very expensive and dangerous for the animal because it needs General anaesthesia. Toy chew doesn’t work against bacteria and can be expensive to buy again and again toys because the dog destroys it…
The best answer for all issues identified with pets dental care is oral sprays, because it handles the delayed tartar which is one of the major problems of many pet lovers.
