Why is dental care important for dogs?
Periodontal disease is the most common dental condition in dogs. If untreated, periodontal disease can cause pain & severe organ malfunction.
Common toys & treats to avoid
Avoid: Hard chews (antlers, rawhide, etc)
Why: If you can’t indent a chew with your fingernail, it is too hard for your dog’s teeth. Antlers and other hard chews can cause teeth fractures.
Alternative: Dental Chews, Pork Chomps, & Tracheas.
Avoid: Tennis Balls
Why: The outside of the tennis ball is abrasive. It causes wear of your dog’s teeth overtime.
Alternative: Chuck It balls, Jolly Balls, & Pet-Friendly tennis balls
