As a pet owner, it’s important to remember that just like us our pets need the proper care. I know when I first became a dog and cat owner, both having different personalities and needs, I never thought about dental care for either of my animals. I’m not quite sure why. They both have teeth and since they can’t brush like we can. It’s important they have the products they need for good oral hygiene.
Did you know that dogs have 42 teeth and cats have 30, similar to a human smile of 32 pearly whites?
Dental care is one of the most often forgotten regiments pet owners overlook. Dental disease affects an animal’s digestive system and overall common health. It can begin at three years of age where the signs of gum disease are noticed in 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats. That’s incredible to think about and scary when it has to do with the longevity of your fur baby’s life.
Symptoms of Gum Disease: Bad Breath, Swollen Gums, Bleeding Gums, Weight Loss and Difficulty Eating.
So What Can You Do?
Well, the first thing you can do is provide balanced meat-based meals for both your cat or your dog. Doing this helps their digestive system and provides the nutrients they need to help build their immune systems and keep them healthy.
The next is to make sure your pets have the proper chew toys and treats. Different toys and treats help different areas within a pet’s mouth and helps to keep their chompers clean and healthy. For Harley, we get him the Indigo Triple Chew Bones which he absolutely loves.
