Nobody is talking about it, although food is at the heart of the problem of poor breath and tartar development in 98% of dogs.
In this article we will list some of the best remedies to get rid of dog’s bad breath, so please keep reading
Sure, you should establish a system (here are some expert pointers) for taking care of your teeth. In any case, if your dog’s food is still a problem, you’ll be losing your battle no matter how many short solutions you attempt.
Because tartar is so detrimental to your dog bad breath, this is very important. The gums become inflamed and irritated (gingivitis) if it is not removed, particularly at the upper gum line. The result is a weakened immune system and widespread harm when bacteria invade the blood circulation.
Consequently, it is essential that you remove the tartar. Our best results come from a combined effort of two strategies:
1. Find a way to remove the tartar from your teeth right now.
Preventing tartar from forming in the first place. And there is the rub: it’s all a matter of diet.
Get ready, because we’re going to go through everything! The urgent need for regular dental care will serve as our jumping off point.
Then, we’ll get down to the nitty-gritty of what’s in your dog’s food bowl, the true determinant of his or her dental health.
Dogs (and their owners) go through a lot of stress during dental cleanings and brushings. Additionally, dental cleanings are expensive and often need the use of anesthesia, which should be avoided whenever possible due to the negative effects on health it may have on the body.
2. Get into this simple dental regimen instead:
a. The first step is to get your dog’s teeth checked.
It’s a good idea to check out what’s going on in your dog’s mouth every once in a while, but don’t rush things or cause unnecessary stress.
With consistent use of your new dental care regimen, tartar (particularly around the gum line) and irritation should gradually decrease. The ability to monitor your development is invaluable.
b. Select the suitable bones.
Raw meaty bones are the key.
Necks from poultry, especially chicken and turkey, are ideal. When your dog does this, his teeth will become totally encircled by the bones of the neck. Tartar is removed from his teeth by the neck bones when he lets go and pulls them out.
When combined with a tartar-softening active component, such marine algae, raw, meaty bones may be quite effective (more on this in just a minute).
Now, what fails to perform as expected? As a matter of fact, many mechanical chews are overly tough and may crack or break your dog’s teeth.
In addition, your dog only gnaws on the tough surface rather than sinking his teeth into the tartar, so it will not be removed from where it counts most: along the gumline.
Many are also rich in carbs, a major cause in tartar development (which will be discussed in detail in the next section).
Also available are rawhides and gentler dental chews that claim to remove plaque and freshen breath in addition to cleaning teeth.
However, many of them also come with a wide variety of risks, including choking, stomach distress from cheap materials, and death from a blockage in the digestive tract due to indigestible bits. So stop that, please!
c. Use a marine algae dental stick before going to bed.
Algae and other marine plants have an inbuilt defense mechanism to sever and digest the slimy biofilm that builds up on their surfaces.
Since tartar on your dog’s teeth is only a biofilm, the algae may remove it in the same way they remove biofilm from fish. If you already have some tartar buildup and terrible breath, this is the most secure, convenient, and efficient method of dealing with it.
You may help your dog’s teeth by giving it a sea algae dental stick after supper every day.
The tartar will be loosened and softened by the algae, making it easier to scrape off the next day when your dog chews on a bone (that favorite chicken neck!).
With that in mind, sea algae dental sticks still don’t get to the root of the problem: tartar. You’d be crazy if you went 20 years without brushing your teeth, so yes, a regular dental regimen is essential.
Tartar may be avoided with the use of sea algae dental sticks and this specific program. However, there is MORE that can be done to deal with the underlying issue of tartar buildup…
The End Game Is To Prevent Tartar from Forming
