Give your dog’s teeth the best care with our dog dental care product range
Dogs love to explore the world with their mouths. Anyone who has ever had a puppy will know the amount of training that goes into teaching the loveable little scamp not to bite the furniture or chew your favourite clothes! But, chewing and biting is an important part of life for dogs of all ages, and healthy teeth and gums are vitally important throughout your dog’s life. This is why, if you want to give your pooch the best possible love and care, you need to invest in the right dog dental products, keeping those canines in prime condition.
At Vet Shop Australia, we have carefully put together a range of the best dog dental products online, enabling all dog lovers to take great care of their best friend’s mouth and teeth. We love dogs just as much as you do – and, as fully qualified, experienced veterinary surgeons and animal health professionals, we understand exactly what your dog needs. We can help you to show your furry friend the ultimate love by giving them every possible health advantage throughout their lives.
Why dog dental products are important
Once your dog’s adult teeth come through, usually by the age of six months, these teeth have to last your best buddy for the rest of his or her life. It’s essential for you, as their trusted guardian, to take the best possible care of their teeth to keep them healthy and happy.
Dogs can suffer from problems with their teeth and gums just the same as we can. Plaque and tartar can build up, causing tooth decay and weakening the enamel, which can cause their teeth to chip and break. Dogs can also have orthodontic issues, the same as humans. In some cases, the puppy teeth don’t all fall out, and the adult teeth come through on top. This can be very painful for your best friend.
Taking care of your dog’s teeth is also important for preventing gum disease. Most dogs already show signs of this by the time they are three years old. As well as causing risks of pain and damage to their teeth, gum infections can also lead to much more serious health issues for your dog, so it’s vital to take good care of their teeth and gums from puppyhood all the way through their lives.
Remember, most dogs try not to show it if they’re in pain, and many dogs with dental problems can still eat normally. The only way to make sure your dog’s mouth is healthy is to check their teeth and gums for signs of discolouration or breakage, and to look after their teeth yourself.
Brushing your dog’s teeth
Yes, dogs need to have their teeth brushed! This is an extremely important part of their grooming routine, but it’s important to do it the right way so your dog doesn’t feel scared or threatened.
It’s important to use toothbrushes and toothpastes specifically designed for dogs. A human toothbrush is the wrong shape for a dog’s mouth, and the bristles may be uncomfortable for them. Your dog will find the experience much easier if you use a toothbrush designed for doggy mouths. If you have a larger dog, you can even use a dog toothbrush that goes over your finger, to give you more control.
Equally, human toothpastes are not pleasant for dogs – your pooch will much prefer a meat flavoured toothpaste! Another great advantage of dog toothpastes is that they are safe for dogs to swallow, as it would be extremely difficult to teach your dog to rinse!
If your dog isn’t used to having their teeth brushed, take things slow. Don’t try to force their mouth open, as this can make them feel threatened. Let them get used to things in their own time, and try to make the experience fun for your dog by using plenty of positive rewards, praise, and play.
Brushing your dog’s teeth doesn’t just have positive health implications for your dog – it also offers benefits for you. As well as the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re taking the best possible care of your dog, brushing their teeth will also make their breath smell nicer. This is a definite win for you if your furry friend loves to give you kisses!
Other dog dental care products that look after your dog’s teeth
As well as brushing your dog’s teeth, there are other ways you can help your precious pooch achieve a healthy set of canines. Dental treats are a tasty way of encouraging your dog to chew and bite in an appropriate way. This is essential if your dog’s teeth are going to stay in the best condition. Dental treats are hard and chewy and come in a range of meaty flavours that your dog will love! They’re ideal for offering as rewards for good behaviour, and your dog won’t even realise they’re taking care of their teeth at the same time!
If your dog doesn’t like having their teeth brushed, you can use a dental spray on their food. This doesn’t have any smell or taste, but it helps to clean your dog’s teeth, removing plaque and tartar while your dog eats as normal. Using a dental spray also freshens your pooch’s breath, so this is also an advantage for lapdogs of all sizes!
You can also encourage your dog to take care of their teeth through play. Chew toys are an important part of dog dental care. They are also great for enabling your dog to chew and bite without harming your clothes or furniture. Play is one of the best ways of strengthening the special bond between you and your pet, and if you can add in the important benefits of dental care with a healthy chew toy, this shows them even more love and care. Some chew toys even have tasty meat flavours, which will encourage your dog to spend even more time exercising their teeth and gums!
