If you own a dog, you know that having one is a big responsibility. You need to feed them and walk them on a regular basis and make sure they get plenty of exercise.

But what about their teeth? Does it matter? The answer is yes! Just like humans, dogs will experience tooth decay if they don’t properly care for their pearly whites.

In this article, we’ll discuss why canine dental care (and most especially dog teeth cleaning) is so important and how you can prevent dental decay from developing in your pet.

They don’t call bad breath ‘dogs breath’ for no reason!

It’s a very common problem, and it can be tricky keeping breath fresh for dogs. If your dog’s breath stinks, you may not realize the cause or that there can be a permanent solution to solving it.

Dogs have bacteria in their mouths just like humans do, and if those bacteria start to grow out of control or get stuck in the gums and teeth, they can cause bad breath. There are several different kinds of bacteria that can cause this issue: some will make your dog’s mouth smell like a normal doggy smell (i.e., like wet dog) while others give off an odor more similar to human breath. This latter type tends to be more common.

The best way to prevent this problem is regular brushing and cleaning every day; if you’ve already noticed bad breath developing then book Village Pets Proffesional Emmi-Pet Teeth Cleaning Service and let’s get things under control as soon as possible possible so we can help get rid of all those nasty germs before they become even worse!

Dental disease is a problem that affects many dogs.

The first sign of dental disease may be your pet’s breath, which smells like rotting food or even decaying flesh! If left untreated, this can cause other health problems such as heart failure because bacteria from the mouth infects the blood stream.

The bacteria in your dog’s mouth can spread to the rest of their body and affect the liver, kidneys or heart.

If you notice any of the following symptoms, it’s important to see your vet:

  • Your dog is lethargic or depressed
  • They have trouble standing up or walking
  • They have a fever and/or chills

To help prevent gum disease from developing in your pet, brush their teeth regularly, especially when they are young.

Starting a good dental care routine (dog teeth cleaning) with puppies is critical to taking the stress away from dog dental care should start when they are young and continue to throughout the dog’s life.

The best way to do this is by using a toothbrush and toothpaste made specifically for dogs. Human toothpaste is too strong for a dog’s mouth and it can cause damage if used improperly or too often.
