Cleaning Dog Teeth is not much more difficult than cleaning your own teeth that are after he gets used to it. The fact is that dogs can have tarter and plaque builds up on their teeth just like we do. And if they can have tarter and plaque then they can get cavities also, and tooth aches. The only difference is that we humans know all about those things and what to do our dogs don't. We as their owners and loyal masters are left to deal with such matters for them.
Health and Care
International statistics show that vets have an incredible amount of work to do over and just after the Christmas holidays.
They have to treat dogs and cats who suffer from stomach upsets, sickness and diarrhea. Dogs who have swallowed small objects and suchlike.
Many people who have older dogs may see that their canine is showing dog osteoarthritis symptoms. Arthritis effects the joints and causes pain and inflammation. This can be a crippling condition for the dog and, in later stages, may even cause the dog to be immobile. There are many available treatments and therapy options for a dog that suffers from arthritis. Some dog breeds are more susceptible to getting this condition because of body mass vs. leg length. Overweight dogs are especially at risk for getting osteoarthritis in their joints.
Having your own puppy is like taking care of a baby - you must feed him regularly, play with him, give him attention, bathe him, etc.
If you forget one important task, then you might be putting your puppy's health at risk. This sounds ominous for any first-time pet owner, but once you know the things you need to look out for, it becomes part of life and you don't even think of it anymore.
A dog allergy is not always easy to diagnose in your pet, although you might sense that something is wrong. Most of us who have a dog as a pet, or more as a family member than a pet, can generally tell when something's not right, although it is very difficult to diagnose illnesses in dogs and we generally end up taking them to a vet.
There are several products on the market today which can help with dog teeth cleaning. Dog tooth paste, often called gel, is available from several different manufacturers containing various ingredients. Most of the tooth cleaning gels and sprays are made with all natural products.
I know it sounds weird talking about brushing dog teeth. But it is a fact that canine dental health care is vital for your pet's long and happy life. Neglecting the teeth of dogs (and also cats) can lead to heavy buildups of tartar on the each tooth which then can lead to gum infections.
Most veterinarians are animal people. It may not be a conscious attempt to harm your dog, but let's face it; there is a lot of money to be made in vaccinating pets annually. A typical vial of rabies vaccine costs less than one dollar! How much did you pay the last time you got your dog a rabies shot? Do you do it every year? Maybe that's too often.
Bringing up your puppy is very similar to bringing up a baby. Except, as my mom would say, a baby eventually grows up and learns to take care of itself as an adult.
I don't mean to scare you - just want to put things into perspective for you - your puppy relies on you from the day you bring him home. It needs you to feed it, to groom it, play with it, and love it. You are also responsible for your puppy's health care over its lifetime - you need to make sure he feels and looks good, and to make sure you know when things are not right.
Just like their owners, just about all dogs will periodically suffer from constipation; some more than others. In most cases, simple precautions and home remedies work enough to help them. However, if the problem gets out of control, it could become serious, expensive and possibly fatal.
