Naturally, every good dog owner wants the very best for the furry friend. However, one aspect of a dog’s health that many humans overlook is the importance of oral hygiene. From bad breath to more serious issues such as canine periodontal disease, when a dog’s oral hygiene is properly taken care of it can lead to a whole host of problems.
In this post, we’ll talk you through the importance of maintaining your pooches oral health and provide you with some tools to help you keep your pup’s gnashers in tiptop condition.
Why Doggie Dental Care Matters
Finding ways to keep your dog’s dental hygiene in check is important for a number of reasons including the following :
To prevent tooth loss
Just like with our mouths, when the supporting structures in a dog’s mouth are infected or damaged, the teeth can loosen and fall out. So it is important to ensure those supporting structures are healthy if you want to keep your pooch’s gnashers in place.
To avoid bad breath
Sure, dog’s are not known for having minty-fresh breath but if getting a whiff makes you want to vomit, you’ve got a problem on your hands. Bad breath isn’t just a problem for those around your dog but an indication of more serious dental health issues.
To stop oral pain
Just as a toothache can cause us distress, despite their superior pain threshold, severe dental issues can be painful for a dog.
To protect against organ damage
Plaque contains bacteria that has the potential to cause organ damage if it gets into the bloodstream and spreads to the heart, kidney and liver.
How Yakalicious Dog Chews Can Help With Your Dog’s Oral Hygiene
Chewing Reduces The Build Up of Plaque
Yakalicious dog chews are designed to be long-lasting even for dogs with the most voracious of appetites. The mechanical action involved in chewing encourages the movement of saliva around your dog’s mouth which in turn can help reduce plaque and tartar.
For Fresher Breath
Our Yakalicious Dog Chews are made from Himalayan Yak Milk and are 100% organic and chemical-free. By avoiding all the nasty stuff that feature in more generic chews we can guarantee that your dog’s breath won’t smell bad.
They Are Tasty Too
What’s more, even if you have a pup who is a fussy eater, you’ll find that whether it’s the Yakalicious Chews or our Bully Sticks, you won’t have to convince your doggo to get chewing. They will be only too happy to chew on our tasty treats. Because we endeavour to ensure our treats are natural and healthy, you can also guarantee that your precious fur-child will only be feasting on the best treats.
In short, it’s easy to overlook the importance of maintaining your dog’s dental hygiene. However, the good news is that it isn’t too hard to do.
