Because February is National Pet Dental Health Month, we feel there’s no better time to talk about the importance of proper oral hygiene for your dog. Did you know:
- Dental disease impacts 89 percent of dogs and 83 percent of cats age 3 and up;
- Only one in 3 pet owners provides proper dental care for his pet;
- Poor dental health can actually shorten your pet’s life.
These are the reasons why it’s so imperative that pet parents understand the importance of your dog’s dental health, as well as how to provide her with proper dental care. That includes brushing teeth at home and getting regular cleanings from your vet.
Take a look at this educational infographic from Best Bully Sticks for some interesting facts about your dog’s teeth.
Good stuff, right? Gotta be honest: I had no idea that puppies had so many less teeth than adult dogs.
The one thing I do know is that dogs need to chew, and at our house we’re big fans of Best Bully Sticks. They’re one of Nike’s favorite treats, and I love that while she’s doing something she loves (chewing!), Best Bully Sticks are helping to remove plaque and tarter from her teeth. It’s an added bonus that they’re all-natural and contain no preservatives, chemicals, or fillers.
Another of our go-to products for Nike’s dental health is the Grooming Pack from TruDog. This set includes their Spray Me dental spray and Orapup for cleaning the bacteria on the dog’s tongue and inside the mouth. It also includes Clear Me, an ear cleaner to keep your pup’s ears clean and parasite-free. For a limited time only, you’ll also get free shipping, and through the end of February, you can save 25 percent on your order when you use code NewYear25 at check-out. It’s the perfect time to pick up this dental hygiene essential for your dog.
