Brushing Dog’s Teeth
The Need for Diligence for Our Pet’s Oral Health
Brushing your dog’s teeth and keeping our pet’s teeth clean and shiny is often overlooked, undermining the importance of dental hygiene in our pets. Teeth brushing is essential for good oral health not only in humans, but also in our canine companions. According to a new Ipsos poll conducted on behalf of Royal Canin, it was found that “Despite being diligent about brushing their own teeth on a daily basis, cat and dog owners are not being as diligent with the oral hygiene on their pets, despite knowing they should brush their pet’s teeth in order to keep them healthy.”
You might wonder, but why is this? Why are pet owners not spending time to brush their pet’s teeth and why is it so crucial to a pet’s oral health?
The Issue at Hand (The Danger of Oral Disease in Pets)
It has been estimated that only 2% of pet owners brush their pet’s teeth daily. The most common dental problem seen in pets is periodontal disease, estimated that more than two-thirds of pets over the age of three suffer from some degree of the disease. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), by the time our pets reach 3 years of age, about 70% of cats and 80% of dogs develop some degree of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease can lead to some significant health issues in your pets and can be prevented with a simple measure of brushing your pet’s teeth on a regular basis.
Due to the pets not accustomed to teeth cleanings, pets tend to be uncooperative while getting their teeth brushed and end up biting their owner’s fingers. Brushing your pet’s teeth from a young age will get them accustomed to a regular routine of oral care and can easily be taken up with the BiteBlock.
