Their teeth are just as important as our hands to us

Your dog doesn’t only use their teeth to eat but to hold, pull and carry things too. And it’s precisely because they do so much with their teeth that they really need looking after

The bacteria on the tooth form an off-white, sticky layer caller dental plaque

The bacteria within plaque and tartar attack the gums and cause inflammation of the gums and surrounding tissues. This is painful for your dog.

  • Pain: The plaque and tartar can spread under the gum and cause inflammation, resulting in detachment of the gum and destruction of the supporting structures of the tooth
  • Bad breath: The bacteria within plaque and tartar produce volatile sulphur compunds (VSCs) which are the main components of bad breath in dogs.
  • Difficulty in chewing: Gum disease can cause painful abscesses in the mouth which make chewing difficult
  • Infection: In rare cases, the bacteria within plaque and tartar can travel into the bloodstream and cause issues elsewhere in the body, for example in the heart or kidneys.
