Fort Lauderdale, Florida: WyldLife Pets, a company that provides natural bully sticks and beef tendons for pets, has released new information regarding the different types of oral health issues that dogs face and the possible remedies for them.
According to Colin Campbell, a spokesperson for the company, "Most dog owners do not pay attention to their pet's dental hygiene which is problematic as more than 80% dogs suffer from serious oral pathology. One way to avoid this problem can be using a pet chew that can help maintain oral hygiene."
Just like human beings, dogs too have their first set of teeth, called deciduous teeth, that need to fall out to make room for their larger, permanent teeth. This usually happens when puppies are between 4 to 6 months of age. It is important at this point in time for pet owners to routinely check their dog's mouth to ensure that all the milk teeth have fallen off otherwise it may lead to adult teeth coming out either sideways or in a crooked fashion. It also helps to provide them with puppy treats that can help them with their toothache as well as anxiety.
For an adult dog, a loose tooth is more suspect as it might indicate a head trauma or severe gum disease. Dogs can often suffer from malocclusion - a misalignment of the upper and lower jaw. Severe cases of malocclusion can even lead to problems with chewing. Sometimes this condition can also occur due to genetics, in which case the pet would be spayed or neutered.
But dogs most commonly suffer from swollen, bleeding gums caused due to a build-up of plaque which leads to the formation of tartar. When this moves to the gum line, red, puffy gums develop, called gingivitis. Left untreated, this progresses into periodontal disease, causing the gums to recede and lose their function. This can eventually lead to tooth loss. Periodontal disease also introduces infection, which can travel through the bloodstream to affect other organs.
Some dog treats are beneficial for the oral hygiene of canines such as bully sticks which act as dog chews by removing the plaque and tartar buildup that can cause bad breath and general dental health issues in pets. WyldLife Pets produces its own line of bully sticks and beef tendons, that are 100% natural and healthy. The products are available for sale on their official website here - http://wyldlifepets.com/.
