Tips for good oral dog and cat care

4 Steps for Good Oral Care

First – Brushing

Good oral care for dogs and cats starts with the owners’ commitment to brush. That’s right old-fashioned teeth bruising is your very best defense against oral disease just like it is in people. Choose a soft bristle tooth brush and pet specific tooth paste because they will swallow what you put in their mouth. Then brush teeth and gums, practice makes perfect.

Second – Diet

From a diet perspective them most effective diet for keeping a dog healthy and their teeth clean is raw food. If you can’t go raw there are fantastic grain-free options of dry and wet foods.

Third – Chews

A chewing dog has healthier teeth than one that doesn’t. We encourage your dog to chew beef back strap to maintain health teeth and gums.

Cat’s aren’t big chewers so you may consider a certified water additive like Bluestem. This is a Canadian certified product good for cats and dogs.

Fourth – Make it a Routine
Despite our best intentions, brushing a dog or cat’s teeth has its challenges. Target a minimum of 3 days a week and put it into your routine and it will become theirs.

A healthy mouth makes for a healthier and happier fur baby!

5 Tips For a Good Dog Pictures

  1. Sit and stay

It’s not always easy to get your dog to sit and stay and it’s something you can work on with your pet. If your dog doesn’t sit and stay naturally it’s something you can work on and then build more distance for the ultimate shot. When researching for this article we found a pooch selfie gadget, check it out (http://geniusgadget.com).

Medical Hemp For Pets – Yes or No

Medical Marijuana for pets

Despite the dangers associated with marijuana for companion animals, some veterinarians and researchers have found that modified pot-based products are helpful to animals suffering from various health issues. Sometimes these treatments have worked for ailing pets when nothing else has.

A growing number of pets are taking hemp-based capsules that contain only trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol—or THC—the psychoactive ingredient that provides the cannabis high. Hemp-based products have been found to contain over 60 components that can only be found in the marijuana plant. These compounds are known as phytocannabinoids.

New companies developing products that contain these unique compounds to treat anxiety, digestive issues, seizures and more. But the process of getting cannabis-based products on the market is tricky.
