Dog dental problems are common today. Inflammation of the mouth (gingivitis or stomatitis), broken teeth and tartar on the teeth are all problems dogs face today.
Some commercial dog foods, especially the dried variety, proudly proclaim that their product prevents these conditions. But they rarely do.
It is often suggested that you need to brush your dog’s teeth, much the same as you brush your own. That this will prevent the build up of tartar. I wonder how many dogs accept this, or how many people do it.
The veterinary treatment of gum infections or other mouth infections are usually treated with antibiotics. If the problem doesn’t go away, the course is increased as is the strength of the antibiotics.
When this doesn’t work, cortisone is often prescribed. This usually resolves the problem, at least for a time.
The next line of attack for your poor, long suffering dog, is to have the teeth removed. If it is just a build up of tartar, then they may be scraped.
However, none of these rather drastic (and expensive) procedures deal with the cause of the problem. And they each carry side effects, not least of all liver toxicity and a suppressed immune system, creating further problems down the track. So what is the cause of dog dental problems?
Dogs have evolved over millions of years, without the aid of either brushing their teeth or veterinary treatment. They haven’t died out. Wild dogs are highly successful.
So what’s the difference between wild dogs and domestic dogs? Well, the most obvious differences is the diet and the health care, or lack of.
A quality, natural diet is critical to the health of your dog, not just his mouth. Sadly, veterinary colleges don’t train their students about the importance of nutrition. They leave this incredibly important subject to the commercial pet food industry, who are only too happy to oblige.
But think for a moment. Would an industry promote a product they don’t sell?
Now think beyond this. If one industry creates a problem, then another (in this case the veterinary industry), steps in for the treatment.
Am I the only one who can see this link? Have the pet food and veterinary industries come together for both their interests?
The fact is, dog dental problems disappear, never to return, when you feed him according to how he evolved. Not just that, but he is overall much healthier, happier and more active.
