The reason our poor doggies get dental disease is mainly caused by the lack of dental hygiene and in-home dental care. Dogs need regular teeth cleaning by veterinarians to have their plaque removed. If care isn’t taken to address this the plaque can turn to calculus and cavities may occur. In addition, poor dental hygiene can cause the gums to be affected along with allowing bacteria to enter the bloodstream and cause systemic illnesses.
Prevention is the key to keeping your doggie’s mouth healthy. This book discusses cutting edge product ingredients that are natural and can be extremely beneficial to in-home dental care. Also included is a list of potentially harmful ingredients that may be additives in pet dental products that you should avoid when keeping your pet’s mouth healthy.
A chapter on the importance of electrolytes to support the immune system is included. Dogs need “sports drinks” too, and these should include the whole range of ionic trace minerals to help maintain teeth integrity and prevent dehydration.
