"...Only about 1% of pet owners brush their pets’ teeth,” explains President of Academy of Veterinary Dentistry, Dr. Brook A. Niemic.
Most of the time, pet owners does not have the time to give their dogs regular teeth brushing on daily basis. Even if the dog have oral problems, they won't be able to accurately express themselves and most of the time, pet owners were not aware until the condition worsen.
Dental chews are a good solution to the challenging brushing task paw parents may face. Happi Doggy Dental Chews offer good mechanical abrasion for their teeth as your dog grinds and chews on them.
Guess what will happen when your pooches turn 4 years old? It’s the age where many pooches show signs of gum disease because they aren't provided with proper mouth care! In fact, some 80% of dogs show signs of oral disease by age 3, according to the American Veterinary Dental Society.
Like humans, dogs can suffer from oral problems like:
- Bad breath
- Build-up of saliva, bacteria, and food on teeth (plaque)
- A hard yellow or brown residue on teeth (tartar)
- Swollen, bleeding, or irritated gums
Studies show that 98% of dogs with bad breath are suffering from periodontal disease, a result of constant plaque build-up. If left untreated, this can lead to a bacterial infection, which can enter the bloodstream and spread to your dog's kidney, heart and even the brain. Chances are if your dog has very bad breath, there may be a problem with his teeth.
The good news is that our dental chews can help your beloved pooches to prevent gum disease and maintain a good oral health.
