You can take the following steps to ensure the proper dental health of your pets:
Keeping a close eye on your pet’s teeth and gums is an important step for early detection of dental disease. Tartar often appears as a brown or gold coloured buildup on the teeth and is close to the gumline. This means your pet requires proper dental hygiene. As cats and dogs find it difficult to communicate toothache until it's too late, staying vigilant of dental problems is advisable. Other signs such as redness or bleeding along the gumline point towards gingivitis and should be seen by a veterinarian as soon as possible. Other warning signs include:
Pawing at the moth
Loose or missing teeth
One way of reducing the chances of unexpected dental problems is by regular brushing. While this can be a tricky process, it is necessary to avoid the formation of tartar and other harmful bacteria. Using treats or play periods can help you reinforce a regular brushing period and get your pets used to the idea of teeth cleaning.
Also, we recommend an annual dental checkup.
