Does Your Dog Have A Toothache?

February is National Pet Dental Health Month so before the month ends I wanted to share some important information  with you about your pooch's teeth and gums.

Would you know if your dog had a toothache or sore gums ? Most pet parents would not, but just like us, toothaches and gum disease can occur in dogs and can be very painful. Since dogs rarely show signs of dental pain, it is important for you to know what to look for so you can get them the help they need. Here are some pointers from WedMD to help you.

1) Since dogs have a more alkaline mouth than humans, they are actually 5 times more likely to get gum disease than we are. Gum disease starts by the build-up of plaque, ( a combinations of food debris, bacteria, saliva, etc.),thickening causing more bacteria to be present. As the bacteria increases, the dog's mouth produces cells to try to fight the bacteria and the result is inflammation and tissue damage. Eventually this build up  of bacteria can destroy bone and cause tooth loss. This process can be very painful.

2)  Unlike we humans, even though your dog may be in a lot of discomfort, he probably won't show it. He will eat normally, wag his tail and enjoy your company while  he may be experiencing considerable pain. (Their animal instincts have taught them to avoid showing signs of weakness.) Since he isn't going to tell you he has a problem you need to know what to look for.

3) The following are signs of advanced dental problems: red or bleeding gums, blood on a chew toy, vocalizing when he yawns or eats, loose teeth, bad breath, lumps or bumps in his mouth, ropey or bloody saliva, difficulty picking up food, chewing on only one side of his mouth, blood in the water bowl, possible nasal discharge and sneezing. Also keep an eye out for loose, broken, or discolored teeth.

Your dog can't tell you he needs help so if you see any of these signs get his teeth and guns checked immediately.

To ensure your canine pal never runs into these problems here are a few suggestions to maintain his good oral health:
  • Take him for an annual oral exam and get his teeth cleaned.
  • Clean you dog's teeth at home every day with a proper dog toothbrush and special dog toothpaste. Best to start this when he is a puppy.
  • Daily chews on safe rubber toys.
  • Good quality dog food and healthy treats that can help clean teeth.
 Your furry kid is counting on you to take good care of him so make sure you include his mouth.
