Many owners maintain excellent vaccination and healthcare practices for their pets, but dental care is often overlooked. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats have some form of dental condition by the age of 3. 

Bad breath and brown tartar can be signs that your pet is suffering from gum disease, which can lead to serious health concerns from tooth loss to organ failure. But most oral problems are easily treated and preventable with the help of these tips to ensure optimal hygiene and overall health for your four-legged friends.

  • Brushing your pet's teeth regularly is the most effective way to reduce plaque buildup and strengthen enamel between professional visits. Our Pet Pure Teeth and Gum Cleaning Pen formula polishes teeth with an innovative silicone tip that provides a gentle application.

  • For additional dental care support try using a mouthwash designed for pets that works to soothe irritated gums and freshen breath. A few spritzes into your pet’s mouth of our Pet Pure Oral Care Spray delivers a powerful treatment without causing discomfort.

  • Chewing on toys is a wonderful and simple way for pets to remove tartar and stimulate gum repair. Hard toys can break and damage teeth, so make sure to provide Fido or Fluffy with safe, non-abrasive and nontoxic options.
    • There are a variety of diets that have been shown to improve pet's periodontal health. Crunchy kibbles are generally better for animals, because soft food can stick to teeth and cause decay. Also, avoid feeding them table scraps and select treats that promote oral care instead. 

    With proper home care and vet checkups every six to twelve months, your pets will be sure to enjoy a clean and healthy mouth.
