愛犬の歯

P1040721.jpg


あるサイトで【歯】のことが書かれていた。ドイツに住んでいるようだが、獣医師は「歯磨きは3回」を推奨されるようだ・・無理でしょう・・

食べ物などにも関係していることは確かのようだが、歯の質など色々なことに関与しているのも事実。犬の場合、食事を噛むというよりも飲み込むことがほとんどだと思う。

歯周病の原因は糖質であり、口内に長い間残ることでそれが歯にこびり付き、それと同時に細菌を取り込んで歯垢が作られる。食事での糖質というと犬猫で言えば主に【炭水化物】となるようだ。ラベルを気をつけて見ればわかるが砂糖が使われることもあるが、犬猫の唾液はアルカリ性なので、仮に酸になっても中和されてしまうことと、人間の口内とまた違う細菌君がいるようなので、虫歯になりにくいのだそうだ。

炭水化物は不要という意見もあるが、食べ物については今回は触れない。

その歯垢の原因となる菌を洗い流すには、唾液の分泌を促す必要性があるようだ。でも、犬や猫の現代の食生活を考えると、咀嚼しない食生活が多いので、歯垢が付きやすい食生活ということになる。

歯を磨いたら絶対大丈夫というわけでもないのが悩みの種だが・・それでも、どんな食事内容であろうと歯磨きは
しなくてはいけない・・

歯磨き・唾液を分泌させるようなガムを食べさせるのが良いようであるが・・・デンタルガムを食べると下痢する我が家の子達はどうすればいいんだ・・ロープで遊んだりするリオだが、これは奥歯でカミカミしている・・リオは前歯によい事をしなくてはいけないのである・・

クッキーを手に持ち、「待て」をさせている間はヨダレが垂れるくらいだから、唾液の分泌を促しているわけだが・・これはあまりにも可哀想である・・

Dog gum disease is a common problem in canines and is due to incomplete or nonexistent dental hygiene. Over 75% of dogs over the age of 3 develop gum disease. Recognizing the symptoms can relieve the dog’s pain and prevent other medical conditions that may result from advanced gum disease.

Symptoms of Gum Disease
The first noticeable symptom of canine gum disease is the bad breath also known as halitosis. The bad breath is due to the bacteria that are present in the dog’s mouth and in the dog’s stomach and intestines. The upset stomach can also result in vomiting and diarrhea.

Other symptoms of gum disease include:

•Problems when chewing and eating; the gums are painful when in contact with different textured food and the dog may not be able to chew properly so he may spit out the food or refuse to eat
•Gum color change; the gums will turn from the normal pink to a bright red (this is in the early stages of gum disease)
•The gums bleed when you brush them or when in contact with kibble food or hard toys
•Loose teeth; the gums start to recede and the teeth may be wobbly; in advanced cases, the teeth may fall out
•Inadequate chewing; the dog tries to relieve the pain
•Behavioral changes; the pain will cause irritability and even aggressiveness in your pet
•Depression
•Lethargy

Causes of Gum Disease

Gum disease is caused by a poor dental hygiene. Food residue and bacteria remain in the mouth and on the dog’s teeth long after he’s eaten. If these deposits are not cleaned, they form a layer of plaque. Plaque can be removed if you brush your dog’s teeth.

If not removed, plaque deposits turn into tartar in about 3 to 5 days. In time, tartar will attack the gums and this will lead to gum disease.

Preventing Gum Disease

Gum disease is difficult to treat and it may often lead to tooth extraction.

However, preventing gum disease is possible by following a few easy tips:

•Brush your dog’s teeth daily; use a special pet toothbrush and meat flavored toothpaste. Use circular moves and rinse with water.

•Dental chews are available in pet stores; these are a rich source of fat and protein and have an abrasive action of the teeth, scraping off the plaque deposits.

Leo and Jade will have diarrhea when they eat dental chews! What should I do!

•Chew toys have the same effects as chew treats and in addition these prevent the dangerous chewing behavior in dogs. Both the dental chews and the chew toys will strengthen the gums and teeth.

•Kibble food is recommended for all dogs to remove the plaque.

But if Leo and Jade eat kibble food more than 3 days, they will have diarrhea...

•Take your dog to a regular teeth cleaning twice per year, to remove any possible tartar deposits and to detect any possible signs of gum disease or tooth decay.

Dental hygiene is important for dogs. Gum disease may cause infections in the dog’s mouth and body. Prevent gum disease with daily brushing.

•Brush Teeth: There are special toothbrushes and pastes available to brush your dog's teeth. Start slowly, concentrating your efforts at the gum line.

•Dental Chews: Pet shops and feed stores carry a variety of toys that encourage chewing and gum stimulation. Experiment with different styles and flavors.

•Crunchy Treats: Dry biscuits and dog food scrape the teeth clean and don't cause tartar build-up as readily as canned food.

Yes, I tried the dog food that scrape the teeth. They actually swallow it. It does not help..

•Professional Descaling: If your dog's teeth are showing signs of heavy plaque buildup, your veterinarian can perform a professional cleaning.

You can read more about dental care from the below link.

In Germany, vet. recommend brushing dog’s teeth three times a day! Now I brush their teeth everyday. Maybe I should buy a scaler. Jade’s teeth are big enough. He does not move that much when brushing his teeth. I can not use it for Leo. His teeth are too small.

Chewing food thoroughly secrete saliva. So, chewing and playing dental toy is good.
Leo does not play with dental toy.. he only plays with soft stuffed animals..

Oh, when I show treats, Leo always secretes saliva! If secreting saliva help preventing those bacteria,
maybe I should hold treats in my hand for 30 seconds daily before I brush their teeth....
