Green Dog Dental Tips To Prevent Dental Disease in Cats and Dogs

For 2020, Green Dog Pet Products hopes you will consider a New Year’s Resolution for your pets.  Our favorite resolution is implementing a regular pet dental care program that you can do at home.

Your Pet's Health Starts Here

Keeping your dog and cat’s teeth clean and healthy is one of the most important things you can do for their overall health. It may be hard to imagine that something as simple as dental care can make such a big difference, but it’s absolutely true.

Dental Health is the Foundation

Green Dog is the first and only veterinary dental health and wellness practice to take a human approach to pet dentistry. But why dedicate our entire practice to taking care of our pet’s teeth?

Because dental disease is one of the most common causes of serious illness in our pets. And it’s also the most preventable!

Avoid Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease is the single most common dental problem in dogs and cats and affects the vast majority of our furry friends to some extent before their third birthday. And periodontal disease is also irreversible, which means that it’s our job as responsible pet owners to do everything we can to prevent it in the first place.

In the early stages, the symptoms of periodontal disease in dogs are easy to ignore. We know we’re supposed to brush our pet’s teeth regularly, but who has the time? Every dog has doggy breath, right? And don’t get us started on cat breath!

To be realistic, how often do we actually peer into our pet’s mouths to check out the state of their teeth? But as dental disease progresses it can have a serious effect on your dog’s dental and overall health.

Don't Ignore The Problem

Left untreated, dental disease can cause more than just problems with your dog’s teeth. Having an unhealthy mouth, teeth, and gums can have a detrimental effect on your dog’s overall health and can lead to a variety of health problems such as blood infections, high blood pressure, kidney problems, heart disease and infections, and some cancers.
