Dental Hygiene products
According to the 2007–2008 APPA (American Pet Products Association) Survey, three-out-of-ten dog owners have dental products for their dog including a toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, tartar/breath control/whitening products or floss. Around 10% of dogs and cats were taken to the veterinarian for dental care last year, however dogs are more likely pet to have dental procedures conducted at home by the pet owner.
I am one of these pet owners who buy and try dental products. I do home checkups on my dog Otis periodically. At my last checkup, my vet suggested Otis will need dental cleaning by next year, which begs the question – do I really want to put him under anesthesia? In the meantime, to help ensure his teeth are relatively clean, I use dental wipes (for dogs) instead of brushing. Otis receives raw marrowbones, which he promptly buries in the backyard garden. I am giving Otis the new dental biscuit by Hartz , twice a week. He doesn’t mind them. So far so good.
