Looking after your dog’s teeth

Keep your dog’s smile fresh

Tailored nutrition is just one part of keeping your dog happy and healthy. Looking after their teeth is really important too. The best way to keep your dog’s smile bright is to get them into a routine of regular brushing and dental chews (like our Dental Dailies).

How our Dental Dailies can help

Our Dental Dailies are star-shaped and made with pumice, so they can get into more nooks and crannies to help reduce plaque and tartar build up – and bad breath! They come in packs of seven and in three different sizes for easy one-a-day dental care.

Common signs of gum disease in dogs

Gum disease is really common (4 out of 5 dogs over the age of 3 have it). The most noticeable sign is bad breath. You may also see yellow or brown staining on your dog’s teeth and red, inflamed gums.

Plaque and tartar

Plaque is a mix of bacteria and minerals from food. It forms an invisible layer on the surface of teeth, and build up around the gum line and crevices between teeth. Once hardened with minerals, it forms limescale-like deposits called tartar.

Periodontal disease

This progressive form of gum disease occurs when bacteria, plaque and calculus damage teeth and gums. This sometimes leads to deep infection. Without veterinary treatment, teeth can become loose in their sockets and fall out.

Cleaning your dog’s teeth

The best way to slow down or prevent the build-up of plaque, tartar and gum disease is brushing your dog’s teeth. Daily brushing is best, but even three times a week is enough to make a difference. Head Vet Sean shows you how to make dog teeth cleaning a fun activity.
