What is a dental disease?
It can be difficult to keep your dog's teeth clean, so dental health problems are very common.
In fact, research shows that at around the age of 2, 80% of dogs have some sign of dental disease. Problems usually start with a buildup of sticky plaque that hardens to form tartar. If not removed, this can lead to gingivitis, a painful condition of inflamed gums, and eventually, periodontal disease may develop. Dogs may lose teeth and be prone to infections that may affect other organs in the body.
What causes dental disease?
Plaque, a colorless film on your dog's teeth, is the perpetrator of bad breath and gum disease. Because he/she doesn't brush their teeth as you do, this plaque can cause tartar buildup. The result is swelling, redness, and inflammation of the gums - otherwise known as gingivitis. If not checked, your dog can develop periodontal disease, which destroys the gums and tissue that support their teeth.
Here are 4 steps to help your dog child’s teeth and gums to remain healthy:
🦷 Beware of bad breath
