A special tip from Carole

Now you can rescue your best friend from painful tooth decay, dental disease, bad breath, without dangerous anesthesia, harmful alcohol and the yucky taste of other brands.

Dentasure spray and gel were recommended to me by a facebook friend and after using them on my darling Poppie for only three months, Poppie had pearly white teeth again.

I have tried many natural remedies in the past, but nothing compares to DentaSure (shown below).

Give it a go, you won't regret it (I usually spray Poppie's toothbrush and brush her teeth immediately after she has eaten). It is pretty economical too, because I still have 3/4 of a bottle of spray lef!

 

  • Just what your dog needs, good dental health without spending a fortune.
  • Easy to use, simply spray Fido's teeth or use the gel on your finger or a toothbrush. Poppie doesn't minded me using a toothbrush, because I always made it worth her while with a never ending supply of her favourite dental treats and of course lots of kisses and praises.
  • No harmful alcohol. Contains only Grapefruit seed extract, Grapeseed extract, Propolis, Xanthan gum and Stevia.

Like humans, dogs have differnt natures and tastes. For your convenience I have listed some other excellent and comparitively priced oral health products that your dog may prefer and which also compliment DentaSure Sray and Gel.

Periodontal inflammation and infection (known as the “silent killer”) are linked to multiple dog dental problems including:

  • blindness
  • diabetes
  • emphysema
  • heart disease
  • kidney disease
  • liver disease
  • loss of jaw bone
  • nasal infections
  • oral cancer
  • osteoporosis
  • osteomyelitis
  • problems during pregnancy
  • stroke

Prevention of periodontal disease (gum)

Fortunately, this very common disease is preventable. This is because there are so many simple things that informed and responsible pet parents can do to ensure their dogs' maintain healthy gums and teeth. Here's some suggestions you may like to try:

Check your dog's mouth regularly

Check your dog's mouth regularly to see that none of the symptoms of Gum Disease are present - even if he or she has only one symptom your pet needs to see your family vet for urgent evaluation and treatment.

The old adage of a stitch in time saves nine is particularly true where dental disease is concerned. If caught early enough gum disease can be reversed, if left untreated dental disease will eventually become irreversable and can end up involving all of your dog's major organs and death will be inevitable.

Avoid feeding soft or sticky foods

The benefits of brushing your dog's teeth.

As with humans, soft sticky foods left on dogs' gums and teeth causes the formation of plaque and caries otherwise known as dental decay. Either avoid feeding these types of food to your pets, or be prepared to brush their teeth immediately after they have finished eating them.

Establish a daily routine of brushing your dog's teeth

Learn to brush your dog's teeth daily. Please check out our sections on home Dental care and how to Brush your dog's teeth correctly for more details. Brushing your dog's teeth is not as difficult as it sounds, though it does require lots of patience, treats, praise and love on your part.

Actually I call it bribery and corruption because the more attention you lavish on your dog the quicker and easier it is to get the job done!

Use creative and attractive alternatives to brushing

Greenies Dental Chews are available at www.carolesdoggieworld.com – they are perfect chews for stopping the build-up of both Plaque and Calculus (tartar) on dogs’ teeth.

If brushing doesn't fit with your lifestyle and you have to feed your dog soft foods, always try follow up with a raw chicken's neck or wing. Common sense is important here, one chicken neck or wing is great for small dogs, but obviously a Rottie or a Pit Bull will require a much larger bone, for instance a rack of bisket bones or a chicken carcass.

Alternatively there are lots of hide chews for instance, Pig's ears, lamb ears and toys in varying sizes that will get your pooch chewing and gnawing which will do the job nicely for you and get his or her saliva flowing.

Caution, always remember to stay away from anything labelled Rawhide as these chews are made in Asia, mainly China and Thailand and the chemicals used in processing them are extrenely toxic to dogs.

Soft raw bones

Chewing on bones is the most natural way for a dog to maintain healthy gums and teeth. It also provides your dog with balance proportions of calcium and other minerals necessary for dogs to grow stromg bones. Please check our section on Dog's Diet and Raw bones for more details.

All-Natural Pigs Ears for Dogs from www.carolesdoggieworld.com - Low in fat and a great option for smaller dogs to chew and gnaw on. No preservatives or added flavourings.

Annual dental check-ups

Ask your vet to check your pet's teeth as part of his or her annual examination and listen to the advice given with regard to the appropriate treatment recommended to maintain and or restore your pet's gums and teeth to good health.
