Dog Plaque And Tartar Removal
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Most dog owners do not realize that they must take care of their dog’s oral hygiene. This will include removing his plaque and tartar. Have you smelled your pets breathe lately? Have you noticed your dog’s teeth getting discolored? These are just some of the usual dog dental oral issues that may show up in your pet’s mouth as they eat their meals. If you should notice any of these dental hygiene problems you should take care of them as soon as possible. If left untreated, it can lead to your dog getting gingivitis which will take more costly treatments later.

What Can I Do?

Most important, you should begin by starting a weekly oral dental routine with your dog. Begin by brushing your dog’s teeth at least on a weekly basis. If your dog is exhibiting any of the dental hygiene symptoms, I recommend increasing the brushings two to three times per week. If your dog has not had a brushing session in a while, you may have to start brush training sessions until he accepts it. If your dog’s dental hygiene is left untreated, you can expect your pet to incur dental problems just as humans do. It is vital that you incorporate oral hygiene into your weekly routine for your pet. This will take some of your vital time; however, in the end, it will save you a lots of grief and money later.

Oral Dog Sprays

Not all dogs will take to regular teeth brushing so you may have to try another way. Dog oral sprays may just do the trick. The spray helps prevent gum disease, removes plaque and tartar which can lead to gingivitis, and save you money on professional cleanings later. These sprays use the dog’s saliva to dissolve plaque, bacteria and tartar buildup and freshens his breath. However, your pet may not take to the spray at first. He must get used to the sound of the spray. Over time your pet should become comfortable with you using the spray in his mouth. The sprays are good especially if your dog does not take easily to the regular teeth brushing sessions. Some dogs just don’t like anything in their mouth like a toothbrush.

Conclusion

Dog plaque and tartar removal is very important as I have already mentioned. You, as a pet owner, must be his oral dentist. You must take the initiative in this area. Begin his oral training sessions on a regular basis and start now. The longer you put it off, the more costly it will become later. One final suggestion, you may have to use your pet’s favorite treat to get him to accept the spray or oral brushings. Whatever he likes stick with it. Do not give up. Your pet will accept either method you choose.

Happy oral training sessions!
