Why Does Canine Dental Health Matter?
According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), an estimated 80%of dogs have some form of periodontal disease by age two. In fact, tooth and gum disease is the most common clinical condition among adult dogs. Unfortunately, it is too often overlooked because its only early sign is bad breath. Plaque forms naturally after eating and can easily be removed by brushing. When not removed regularly, however, it can harden into tartar, which requires professional dental care.
- Wet food is more likely to cause plaque and tartar buildup more quickly, although dry food may also cause this without regular dental care.
- Without proper care, many older dogs experience tooth loss, which can lead to problems with chewing and appetite as well as behavioral changes.
- Toy breeds and brachycephalic dogs have special dental challenges. Their teeth are often crowded or missing, and tend not to be chewers which is critical for healthy teeth.
Nylabone Chews Best!
Nylabone helps you establish a positive dental health routine for your dog, with edible dental chews, a full range of oral care supplies, and chew toys that leave your dog with cleaner teeth. Whether you’re hunkering down to brush your dog’s teeth, setting him up for a chewing session, or giving him a mouth-friendly snack, Nylabone chew toys and edible chews help keep your dog’s smile healthy and his breath fresh.
Always be sure to match dental products to your dog’s size and chewing strength, and keep an eye on him when he’s chewing to make sure that large pieces of chew toys aren’t being chewed off and swallowed. Take worn or chewed-through chew toys away from your dog promptly and replace them with new ones. Human toothpaste and mouthwash are hazardous to dogs, so always use canine-specific dental supplies.
