Long time Fidose of Reality readers know we are head over heels about proper dental care for dogs. Healthy dog teeth means a healthy heart and a healthy heart is what all dog moms and dads want. I’m the dog mom who gives treats and toys but also products of good health to family, friends, and of course, in my dog’s stocking, for the holidays.
Say cheese, smile, and you may recall:
and our personal favorite: The Mystery of the Dog Mouth
We’ve dished all about the TropiClean line of products because dental care is THAT important in the life of a a dog. In nearly 15 years, my previous Cocker Spaniel never required a professional dental cleaning under anesthesia. I, along with my our family’s veterinarian, believes that daily dental care is the reason. For many folks, trying to get a dog to accept and like teeth brushing is akin to, well, pulling teeth.
I am not a veterinarian but I do know what happens if you don’t take care of your dog’s teeth: Really nasty things that accumulate on the surface of the teeth and even scarier, at the gumline, can seep into your dog’s bloodstream, travel to the dog’s heart, and then bigger problems happen.
Our best weapon of defense against tooth decay and periodontal disease in dogs is preventative care. A few options from TropiClean include:
Clean Teeth Gel
To kill germs that cause bad breath, plaque and gingivitis without harmful ingredients. Dogs can’t spit, after all – so no rinsing required.
Help reduce plaque and tartar while keeping your dog busy and satisfied with a treat.
Fill water bowl, add water additive to promote healthy gums and eliminate bad breath for up to 12 hours.
In the spirit of giving, we’ve joined up with several other pet bloggers to give away 10 (ten) TropiClean Starter Kits featuring the water additive, dental chews, and clean
teeth gel, valued at approximately $50. Want to enter and give the gift of good health to your dog?
