Dental Care for Adult Dogs

Many pet owners wonder how to take care of the dental health of their adult dogs. Our adult furry friends may initially react negatively to procedures such as mouth care and tooth brushing. Therefore, you should not rush the process and gradually get your pet accustomed to an oral care routine with small but steady steps.

Wet food may be tempting for dogs, but its moist texture creates a suitable environment for bacterial growth. At the same time, its dense consistency can stick to their teeth and get stuck between them. Dry food is suitable for dog teeth with its hard structure and relatively helps prevent the formation of multiple dental diseases.

Toothpaste Selection for Your Dog's Dental Care

The most important point to consider for the dental care of our furry friends is the selection of an appropriate toothpaste. Dogs have different biology than humans and cannot use products designed for humans. For example, fluoride found in toothpaste suitable for humans can be toxic to dogs. Similarly, toothpaste designed for humans foams, which is not suitable for dogs. Puppies may swallow toothpaste foam because they don't have the ability to spit.

You should make sure that dog oral care products have natural ingredients. Chemical-based products are not suitable for your pawsome friend's mouth structure and can lead to serious illnesses. Toothpaste should also not stick to your dog's teeth.

Nowadays, toothpaste is produced for dogs to have healthy mouth and teeth. You can obtain these kinds of toothpaste from pet stores or your veterinarian.

How often should you visit a veterinarian for your dog's dental care?

Making short visits to the veterinarian for your dog's dental care at regular periods can help prevent many illnesses from progressing by providing an early diagnosis. However, dog owners may wonder how often they should visit the veterinarian. This time period may vary depending on the characteristics of your dog. Therefore, you can create a veterinarian routine for your furry friend based on their age and breed.

The dental structure of some dog breeds is more susceptible to diseases. Often, it is appropriate to visit a veterinarian every six months or once a year. You can learn which periods are suitable for your furry friend by getting information at your first veterinarian appointment. At the same time, you can visit a veterinarian by following the symptoms in your dog.

Dental disorders in dogs can manifest themselves with various symptoms. You should visit a veterinarian immediately when you detect these symptoms in your furry friend.

  • Bad breath
  • Changes in eating habits
  • Loose or missing teeth

Dental disorders in dogs can lead to different problems over time. For example, the jaw structure is directly affected by dental disorders, and eating habits are often disrupted.
