Importance of Dog Dental Care

Let’s talk about the importance of your dog’s dental hygiene. The average adult dog has 42 teeth, we only have 32 teeth (not counting wisdom teeth).  Just like us humans these teeth are very important to everyday life and survival, and just like us our four legged canine companions (& sometimes the feline variety) occasionally need to see a dentist.  Sometimes dental visits are just for a cleaning to catch trouble before it starts, but other times a little more intervention is required such as pulling teeth to keep your pet healthy. Being that teeth are so close to other vital organs such as the eyes and brain, traveling infections are a concern and should be immediately attended to if there is a rising suspicion.

How It’s done

Your license veterinarian will sedate your dog and clean their teeth, including under the gum line where tartar builds up. Tartar can damage your dog’s teeth to the point where they may just fall out or cause gum disease. Gum disease has been linked to heart disease so this can become serious fast, this in itself is a major reason to keep track of your pup’s pearly-whites.

Just like us, frequent brushing extend time between Dental visits.  Offering hard foods, such as dry kibble and chews, may also help “brushing” but does not substitute true teeth brushing. dogs that eat soft diets will have to have a teeth cleaning more frequently than a dog who eats a more crunchy diet. Also you may find that smaller dogs are more prone to dental problems than their larger counterparts.

Doggy dental care at home

There are many different items on the market to help with your dog’s tartar build up from additives to their water to chew toys/treats to doggy safe toothpaste, everyone’s heard of Greenies.  We definitely want to mention to stay away from rawhide chews though.  See our article about the Dangers of Rawhide.

Dental Health Aid Suggestions

Let’s get started

If you are just starting to take care of your dog’s teeth, it is best to take them to the vet and get their teeth cleaned so you’re taking care of a healthy mouth from the beginning.  Also, talk to your vet about their suggestions for dental care at home, they may know of something not listed in this article.

By taking your pet’s Dental Health seriously you may prevent higher vet bills and help your pet live a longer, healthier life.

Dyne Dog Supplement

So I have a breed that seems to be hard to keep weight on in the early years, doesn’t help they’re also a picky eater. I also have very good mommas who need extra calories during nursing. I was looking for something to add to their daily feedings that will promote eating what’s in their bowl as well as extra calories on top of a higher calorie food. I ran across Dyne for Dogs so decided to give it a try.

Dyne also makes formulas for livestock and there is a multi species formula as well, that can be used on dogs. We purchase the Gallon size Dyne being that we have quite a few dogs.

With the gallon size, we also ordered a pump for easier dispensing on kibble.

Our dogs seem to really like the vanilla flavoring, even our pickiest eater finishes their bowls. We wet our kibble down, most of the time, with some water and mix the supplement throughout. We’ll also add some probiotic on top with some yummy canned food to make things even more enticing. They’ll think they’re getting spoiled but they’re coats shine and they keep weight on.

So far, no complaints from from canine or human.

Rescues, doing more harm than good

I’m going to touch on a very controversial subject but I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t voice my opinion. If you’re easily offended or an “animal right’s nut”, look away now. A little back story… An event happened in my own county a short time ago where a dog was picked up by animal Read...

I’m going to touch on a very controversial subject but I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t voice my opinion. If you’re easily offended or an “animal right’s nut”, look away now.

A little back story…

An event happened in my own county a short time ago where a dog was picked up by animal control in very poor, painful condition and taken straight to a veterinarian for treatment. The dog was treated for about a week’s time, according to statement released by the county’s Public Information Department, that the dog was in such poor condition that it was decided between the animal control officer and the treating veterinarian that the most humane thing to do would be to euthanize said dog.

While the dog was being cared for, animal control was also in contact with a rescue that had expressed interest in transporting (& funding) for further medical care for the dog’s extensive injuries. According to the rescue, they phoned to setup transport for dog and was told the dog had declined and the decision was made to relieve the dog’s suffering. This, of course, didn’t sit well with the rescue and some community people; the reason for the Public Info Department releasing their statement.

This poor creature had 2 severely damaged front legs, including missing portions of front paws. Can you imagine the pain this poor thing was in? The pictures I saw it may have also had some significant damage to rear paws. Overall, very bad shape.

I truly believe the last act of kindness that could be done for this poor baby was to let her cross peacefully. If this frail soul had of been put through the pain and suffering of surgeries and then recovery process not only would it have been long but the expenses accrued would have probably been astronomical.

When is enough, enough?

This rescue claims to have had the funds to care for her condition but it leaves me wondering… If rescues continue to pull the hard, sick, injured animal cases the funds drain quickly. The thousands spent on those cases could have saved hundreds, less hopeless cases. The thousands this rescue claimed to have could have saved 10+ less medical dependant animals from euthanasia. If they’d of gotten ahold of this case, and treated her and she eventually made it through to better health how many dogs would have died because the money wasn’t there to help? The perfectly good, adoptable dogs that are getting killed in shelters because they weren’t hurt, sick, dying are being looked over by rescues.

This just doesn’t make sense to me. Not all can be saved, and on another note, not all should be saved either.

Heart strings

It’s all about them heart strings. Any case that can tug at those hearts and open those pocket books are what rescues want. Donations start rolling in when you post a gorey picture of a dying animal.

I saw recently a rescue was found to still be harvesting money from the public long after the dog the donations were intended for had passed away. It’s one thing to ask for donations but to ask for donations towards a dog that has already passed away is a bit misleading and unethical in my opinion.

Rescues will claim that those hard cases help pay the bills for others, while that may be true to an extent, the majority of that money raised will go to helping the severely injured leaving a thin portion to use on maybe 1 or 2 vs lots more. Rescues don’t seem to see the bigger picture, they don’t want to educate the general public. People want to save these severe cases for their own selfish feelings.

Enough is Enough

See the bigger picture, help more dogs and let the severe cases go. Cry, remember them, help others pets in better shape in their memory but give those that have the best chance the extra time to find their chance.
