Oral Hygiene & Your Dog

Keep your dog smiling with daily dental care  

Did you know that three out of four pets show signs of oral disease by the age of three? Unfortunately, this means more than just bad breath, and can involve both painful gums and loose teeth which can make it difficult for your pet to eat. 

Gum Disease & Associated Illness 

Keep your dog smiling with regular dental care

Untreated, the gum disease can result in our pet being more prone to other illness, in particular heart, liver and kidney problems.  

Signs to Look Out For

Bad breath, bleeding gums or signs of sensitivity in the mouth can indicate dental problems. If you are concerned about any of these symptoms you should consult your vet immediately.  

Daily Dental Care

  • Use a canine toothpaste and brush to clean your dog’s teeth daily (note: human toothpaste is toxic to dogs)
  • Dental chews fight tartar build-up and plaque. They also freshen breath and help maintain healthier teeth and gums.
  • Flossing your dog’s teeth prevents tartar build-up and cavities. Liquid floss & flossing toys are available in-store.
  • Annual dental check-ups by your vet are also recommended.
