Bad Breath May Signal Poor Dental Health

According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, over 80 percent of dogs develop gum disease by the age of three years. Common signs of poor oral health include bad breath, excessive drooling, loss of appetite due to oral discomfort, and teeth discolored by tarter build-up. Bad breath is often the most obvious sign, and products with natural breath-freshening ingredients, such as anise and chlorophyll, can improve that condition. However pet parents can help their beloved companions enjoy optimal dental health by focusing on the cause of Fido's offensive smells, in addition to relieving the more noticeable symptoms.

Keeping your dog's teeth clean from plaque build-up plays an important role in optimal dental health. Chewing is a natural form of tooth cleaning and most dental health products available for dogs are based solely on the abrasive action of chewing something.

If You Just Can't Brush...

We know that some pets just won't put up with tooth brushing. Adopted pets, adult pets that didn't get tooth brushing early on, and feral cats are often poor candidates for daily tooth brushing, but the health risks of just ignoring dental care are too great. What can you do? Try one or more of these ideas:

  • Attack the Plaque – Choose a dental product that is designed to reduce plaque build up. Oral hygiene sprays are a great choice for some pets to combat the bacteria found in plaque. If a dental spray won't work for your companion, consider a dental powder supplement, which is added to your pet's meals to battle the plaque. Another option is a pet-safe water additive, easy to use – just add to your pet's water bowl.
  • Supplement for Support – Many supplements with ingredients like Coenzyme-Q10 can provide additional support for healthy gums. These are especially helpful for pets with genetic factors increasing their periodontal health risk, and for older pets.
  • Try Tooth-Friendly Food & Treats – Dogs and cats alike often achieve better dental health through improvements in the quality of food, and the regular inclusion of raw bones for dogs, raw chicken necks for cats and chew treats in their diet.
  • Brush Up on Pet Oral Hygiene – For more helpful suggestions on dental care for pets, please see our Holistic Healthcare Library's dental care articles.
