Dental care / plaque

Dogs with dental plaque is becoming a bigger problem.

No less than 80% of dogs older than 2 years is suffering from dental plaque. Dental plaque is a relatively soft layer that consists of a combination of living and dead bacteria, calcium and phosphorus from the saliva, food scraps and water.

The space between the teeth and gums is the perfect place for the development of dental plaque. The shape and construction of the dental elements play a significant role. One animal, however, is more prone to plaque than others and also the severity of the consequences can be very different for each animal.


Inflammation

With build-up of bacteria an inflammation in the gums can occur. Teeth can become loose and the inflammation increases blood flow, which causes the bacteria and the waste products of the inflammation to spread to kidneys, heart, liver and joints, this can cause serious damage to the organs.


The symptoms of inflammation are:

  • Eating difficulty, the dog does not eat or chews only with one side
  • Smelly breath.
  • Red and swollen gums.
  • White or brown tartar on the teeth.
  • Teeth are loose


Just as for humans preventing dental problems is far better than having to find a cure!

The most important pillar in curing is based on preventing or slowing down the formation of dental plaque and tartar.

 

February is dental month!

During this month vets and pet shops bring extra attention to the dental health care of your pet. We, again, would like to emphasize that dental health care is very important to prevent formation of plaque and tartar.

What can you do to maintain your pet's dental health:

1. Extruded food

Always use extruded kibble, for axample, Max Adult or Max Senior as main food! Max is excellent food with several positive effects and naturally balanced nutrition for every dog and cat.


2. Brush teeth

Besides the right kind of food we advise brush teeth daily with already formed plaque.

This can be done with a toothbrush, fingerbrush or a finger gauze. Clean the teeth by brushing is always best! Make it a routine by brushing every day. This is often the easiest by using a gauze around your finger (AFP Sparkle Vinger Wipes

3. Mouthwater

If brushing is too much of a task. Then use Dog & Cat Dental Breath + Tooth SprayProvides by regular use a fresh breath and keeps your teeth in good condition. Dental Breath + Tooth Spray goes against plaque buildup
Applicable at: Dogs, cats and ferrets.


4. Chew-It One per week

The special design of the Chew-It One per week exersices the chewing muscles, supports the deep cleansing of teeth and gums and thus prevents bad breath and plaque. We do not advise regular beef strips or chew strips unless they indicate that they will remove plaque with daily use. Most importantly is to look at the fat / sugar they contain. 

We wish you good luck in preventing plaque!
