Dental Problems and Your Dog. Dental problems effect all types of animals, so your dog might have them too. Dogs suffer from the same dental issues as humans, like gingivitis (inflamed gums), stomatitis (inflamed mucous membrane), and periodontal disease (teeth covered in tartar). The pain from some of these issues can be so great that the dog may refuse to eat. The type of issue seen in our pets isn’t a problem for wild dogs. Canine dental diseases are the result of living with humans far away from their natural environment and natural diet. The great news is that it’s easy to both prevent and cure dental diseases in dogs. The most important diseases to prevent in your dog is gingivitis, which is a result of poor hygiene. You should be brushing your dogs teeth and provide them with a healthier food option, one that’s closer to what they would be eating in the wild. It would be wise to do some research on healthy food options for your dogs and check out a few videos on properly brushing your dogs teeth.
5 Uses For Dogs
Giving your dog improper food and disregarding brushing could cause a hard substance known as tartar or calculus will build up on the dogs teeth. You’ll first notice a discoloration around the gums when this happens. This can encourage soft and spongey gums that can often result in bleeding and receding and finally, gingivitis. When gingivitis occurs the dog is more open to pain and infections, and when infections occur they can spread throughout the dogs body and could even end in death.
A 10-Point Plan for Pets (Without Being Overwhelmed)
When you let gingivitis go untreated it can develop into periodontal disease, which means their teeth can become loose and fall out. Treatment from a veterinarian can vary depending on the extent of the disease. They usually give antibiotics as a first line of defense for treatment of inflammation and infection. When this treatment doesn’t help they use cortisone to help with the symptoms, but this just masks the problem. The final treatment for these types of issues is to pull the dogs teeth. If your dog has tartar build up on the teeth you may be able to remove it yourself, provided that the build up is reasonable and the dog has a calm disposition. Change your dogs diet to something a bit healthier with more natural ingredients to help cure and prevent dental problems down the road. You also need to practice good hygiene procedures like regular brushing and checkups. Do a little research on the internet and find out the best type of food to feed your dog and any other dental issues that could possibly arise.
