Oral care is a vital part of pet healthcare and one that can be overlooked. Many pets suffer from problems related to oral health (bad breath, plaque build up, inflammation). Pet Dental Month focuses on how good oral health is important to your pet’s wellbeing.
Good oral health is about creating healthy habits for oral care right from the start.
What Does Poor Oral Health Look Like?
Does your pet have bad breath? A healthy dog’s breath can smell like the food the dog eats – there is a difference between smelling dog food and how a dog smells from their mouth when their oral health is poor. Over time, poor oral health can lead to painful inflammation or worse. Luckily, you can do a lot to keep your pet’s mouth healthy.
Bad breath is often a sign of plaque, but it can also be due to oral tumours, nutritional deficiencies or kidney and liver diseases. However, the most common cause is plaque formation, which in the long run can lead to painful gingivitis. Plaque forms every day in the dog’s mouth, making a daily oral health routine really important.
What Can Pet Parents Do About It?
It can take some time to notice when pets have a sore mouth because they are experts at hiding pain. Therefore, it is important to take care of your pet’s teeth and look out for symptoms of dental/mouth problems on a regular basis.
The sooner you take care of plaque, the better. When plaque is mineralized and calcified by saliva, it develops into tartar. Tartar can lead to inflammation in the gums, which can be very painful. Poor dental hygiene can also have other serious consequences such as urinary tract infections or pyorrhea (swelling of the gums).
You can remove plaque and lighter tartar yourself at home, but a heavier tartar coating usually needs a veterinarian to remove it. At the vet clinic, you get tips and advice on how to maintain your pet’s teeth to prevent future dental issues. In combination with tooth brushing, veterinarians often recommend dietary supplements to prevent plaque.
