Proper dental health is not only important for humans, just as brushing our teeth everyday is second nature, the same should be true for our pets. Keeping your dogs teeth and gums in good shape has many health benefits in addition to fresh breath. As responsible pet owners it is our duty to help them maintain a healthy smile.
Along with regular visits to your vet for wellness check-ups, Sweetwater Nutrition's Breath-A-Chews is a great solution to help freshen breath and reduce both plaque and odor-causing bacteria in the mouth. Breath-A-Chews contain all natural ingredients including essential oils, mint, chlorophyll and activated charcoal.
Breath-A-Chews contains parsley seed oil (commonly used as a digestive aid and used to help improve breath), mint oil (instrumental in eliminating bad breath and aids in dental and gum health due to its antiseptic properties), activated charcoal (works by absorbing the toxicity of chemicals), digestive enzymes to assist in the proper digestion of food, and chlorophyll, which is effective in reducing bad breath.
Breath-A-Chews Ingredients (per tablet):
Parsley Seed Oil
- Helps Decrease Tarter Formation
Feed one Breath-A-Chew tablet per day as needed.
Dental Care Tips for Your Dog:
Plaque: Dogs can become prone to gum disease and tartar build up on the teeth as food particles and bacteria collect along the gum line forming plaque and tarter build up.
Tartar: If plaque is not removed, minerals in the saliva combine with the plaque to form tartar on the the teeth. Tartar can irritate the gums and cause inflammation (gingivitis). This can be seen as reddening of the gums adjacent to the teeth. It can also cause bad breath.
Periodontal Disease: If the tartar is not removed, it builds up and separates the gums from the teeth, leading to more bacterial growth. This can be very painful and can lead to loose teeth, abscesses, and bone loss or infection. As bacterial growth continues to increase, the bacteria may enter the bloodstream. If treated by your veterinarian, periodontal disease can be slowed or stopped.
A good dental care program includes:
- Regular visits to your veterinarian, which include an oral exam
- Veterinary dental cleaning as advised
- Daily home dental care
