Most of the time, bad breath is caused by dental or gum disease. Certain dogs (particularly small ones) are prone to plaque and tartar. However, if a teeth cleaning doesn't clear this up, this could also indicate larger medical problems in the mouth, lungs, or gut. Your veterinarian would be the best resource to pin point the cause.
Under direct supervision of a veterinarian, our pet hygienists are specially trained to use relaxation and training techniques to calm the animals to allow us to clean their teeth. They have a kind and gentle approach to providing a very thorough teeth cleaning for your pets.
Without proper dental care, by the age of six or seven, most dogs have smelly infected mouths. That infection drains bacteria into the bloodstream twenty four hours a day. As time goes on this stresses their immune system and progressively weakens it until they’re left with kidney disease, liver problems and a mouth with maybe a few teeth left. That doesn’t have to happen.
Healthy Mouths = Longer Lives
Plaque Vs. Tartar
Plaque is a mixture of bacteria, minerals from saliva and gummy food particles. It’s the icky gooey stuff that forms on teeth between brushings. When plaque hardens and turns a brownish color, it’s called tartar. The tartar can build up carrying infection and get under the gums. This can lead to loose and painful teeth, which eventually fall out.
After cleaning each tooth, we polish and rinse the mouth of our furry patients. There is no need to worry about harmful chemicals going into your dog's body, because everything we use is all natural!
