Dog’s require a trip to the dentist just like us humans. They need proper oral health care and routine checkups. There are several dental procedures and oral surgeries performed to fix their canine teeth.

Your dogs wellness and overall quality of life is directly dependent on their dental hygiene.

Oral health is directly related to their lifespan

You probably already know the significance of a healthy diet and regular exercise for your pet or emotional support animal. But paying attention to your dog’s dental hygiene is essential too.

If you want your dog to live a long and complete life, which you obviously do – take good care of their teeth.

Due to poor dental health, bacteria gets formed in your pet/ESA's mouth which can then spread throughout their body causing damage to other essential organs including their heart.

This can affect your pets lifespan, shortening the time they get to spend with you.

Gum Disease

A build-up of plaque or tartar around the canine teeth can cause gum diseases.

Gum diseases are immensely painful and can cause your dog to face difficulty while eating; it can also result in tooth loss and other serious issues.

To look out for such gum and periodontal diseases make sure that there are no signs of bleeding, swelling and redness around the gums. Have your dog checked twice in a month from a pet clinic and take your dog.


Endocarditis is an infection that causes inflammation of the soft tissue, valves and lining around the heart. This too spreads from the bacteria in a dog’s mouth to their bloodstream.

Here are some basic tips on keeping your dog’s teeth in good shape:

· Brush their teeth regularly. Develop this habit in them when they are young; similar to how we teach our kids to brush.

· Use toothpaste and mouthwash specifically formulated for dogs. Add the mouthwash to their drinking water.

· Get them toys they can chew on; this will keep their gums healthy.
