We may not know everything about our furry friends but we sure do know that their pearly smile is what brings us joy every day! This also vouches for our hard work to keep our dogs’ teeth clean and healthy which should be every dog parent’s top priority.
Unfortunately, according to veterinary studies, dental disease is one of the most common disorders among dogs and the chances of your dog developing it are as high as 80%.
Starting from the age of two, your dog may develop periodontal diseases that affect the periodontal ligament, gums, and alveolar bone.
So, as their carer, you should brush and floss their teeth on a daily basis. If your dog’s gums bleed or teeth become loose, you should get them checked by a vet as soon as possible to ensure the early treatment of any hidden diseases.
To keep your dog’s smile healthy and shiny, you should know some important facts about them.
