Oral health is a very important component of your pet's overall health, and should not be ignored. Signs of poor dental health include yellow or brown teeth, bleeding gums, or loose or missing teeth. Have your veterinarian check your pet's teeth and gums at least once a year to detect any early issues and maintain proper oral health. Assisi Animal Health shares five ways to keep your pet's mouth healthy.
Smell your pet's breath. Bad breath can be an early warning of periodontal disease or stomatitis, which is a feline condition that results in painful inflammation of the cat's gums and mouth tissues. You can reduce or eliminate bad breath by adding a couple of spoonfuls of organic coconut oil to your pet's food. It contains lauric acid, which has antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial properties that attack bad breath and bacteria causing gum disease.
Brush your pet's teeth. This task will seem difficult at first, but with plenty of patience—and treats—you can successfully brush your pet's teeth with a soft toothbrush and pet toothpaste. Try to work up to brushing for 30 seconds on each side of your pet's mouth several times a week.
Provide oral health treats/toys. Giving your pet food and toys that have been specifically developed to promote oral health, while not as effective as tooth brushing, will go a long way in maintaining healthy teeth and gums.
Give an oral health supplement. There are a number of supplements available that fight plaque and tartar and can help keep your pet's mouth clean. Ask your vet for a recommendation about which supplement is best for your pet.
Assisi Animal Health's clinical solutions complete the Circle of Care®—the collaboration of veterinarians and owners in animal health and healing. Our company helps veterinary professionals and owners improve the quality of life for companion animals using the Assisi Loop, the non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical healing device that is based on the same FDA-cleared technology used on humans.
