Oral hygiene of animals

Oral hygiene of animals

In order to stay healthy, first you need to have healthy teeth. When left untreated, they can be the cause of kidney, heart, liver and lung diseases or chronic infections. The most noticeable symptom of oral cavity diseases is an unpleasant scent of muzzle, the presence of tartar, i.e. a brown plaque on teeth, redness and swelling of gums, bleeding from the oral cavity, reluctance to eat, or shrinking away from being touched around the snout.

How often should you clean your dog and cat’s mouth?
You should wash your pet’s teeth regularly, preferably every day. If this is not possible, at least 2–3 times a week. Once every six months, you should also go with your four-legged friend for a dental check-up at a veterinary.

What products are worth choosing? First of all, they should be veterinary preparations. Definitely do not use a toothpaste for humans. Deo Paste with parsley extract freshens the breath, cleans teeth, cares for gums and reduces the risk of plaque and tartar formation. No brushing required. In extremely difficult cases, we suggest using Deo spray from dr Seidel, which only needs to be sprayed on the teeth. Deo spray is a preparation with sage extract that soothes inflammation of mucous membranes and prevents plaque formation and deposition.

Remember to get your pet used to oral hygiene from an early age. Your pet will then consider it as a routine activity and will not have any major problems with oral care.
