I knew that people brushed their dogs' teeth, but I didn't know that people flossed them until I ran into the Doggie DentalAID product at SuperZoo in Las Vegas. The nice people who own the company showed me how easy it is to floss a dog's teeth using my doggie Pearl as an example. Pearl is an easy going dog, but she will let you know when she doesn't like something -- and she didn't mind having her teeth flossed. I was intrigued.
I brought Doggie DentalAID home and tried it myself. I managed to do a good job of flossing Pearl's teeth, and a lot of gunk came out from between them. I imagine that the reason for flossing a dog's teeth is the same reason why we humans floss our teeth -- to remove bacteria so that our teeth don't rot -- but even more important, to eliminate bacteria loads so that they don't tax our bodies and our health. If your body is busy fighting off all of the bacteria that you swallow, it won't have the resources to help you fight off other pathogens. This is why they say that flossing your own teeth can add 6 years to your life. I wonder how many more years you can get from your beloved dog just due to flossing? It's worth finding out.
Doggie DentalAid is a nifty floss holder that you add the floss to in order to better floss your dog's teeth. You could not floss a dog's teeth the way you floss yours, with just two fingers. You have to hold your dog's mouth open with one hand and use the Doggie DentalAID gadget with the other. It's not difficult, but there's a learning curve. It's easier to do with two people, so enlist a friend.
Unlike with your own teeth, you don't have to do a 100% perfect job on your dog's teeth -- you're just trying to make an improvement. I never get between all of Pearl's teeth, but I do scrape the tartar on the outside of the teeth with the floss too, so I'm getting a lot of plaque out of her mouth. An improvement in dog dental care is better than nothing at all.
Doggie DentalAID, used a couple times a week (or whenever you can do it) will make a huge impact on your dog's dental health. Combine it with tooth brushing and a good diet, and you will make a massive impact, so much that you may not ever need a veterinary dental done on your dog. What will you do with all of the money you save? Take a cruise!
Paws up for this innovative product! Yes, flossing is definitely going the extra mile for your dog, but wouldn't your dog go the extra mile for you?
Periodontal, or gum disease, is the number one reason that dog's teeth fall out. It also causes bad doggie breath and can lead to other complications. Years ago, flossing was not part of a person's daily routine. Today, it has become a lifestyle. It makes sense that this would also be true for our beloved dogs. Preventative care, including regular brushing and flossing around the gum line, is a proven way of fighting periodontal disease. Although, brushing a dog's teeth has been challenging, it is now much easier with the use of newly discovered techniques. However, flossing a dog's teeth was still virtually impossible.
