Bacon Breath or Clean Chompers?

27 August 2018

If you have ever tried to take to Rufus’ chompers with a toothbrush, you know you are in for a difficult time.

Covered in slobber, finally pinning him down after chasing him in laps around the lounge room, you have no doubt stopped to think that there has got to be an easier way!

Lacking the ability to use a toothbrush, dogs need other avenues to clean their teeth and promote good natural dental hygiene.

The purpose of brushing is not just as many believe it to be, in getting rid of that bad bacon breath, rather to remove old food caught in between teeth as well as getting rid of nasty plaque that builds up.

Both plaque and stuck food continually wear away at tooth enamel while harbouring nasty bacteria that can cause dental cavities and infected or swollen gums, often resulting in gingivitis.

Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gum tissues surrounding the teeth and if left untreated, it can progress to periodontitis, which can be a major cause of tooth loss, rotting and that bad bacon breath never going away!

That’s where we come in.

Blackdog have a huge range of natural bone products and other long lasting occupiers that require a great deal of chewing and gnawing, which is a huge benefit and aid in removing that natural nasty build up of plaque.

Chew time is important for Rufus, as it also massages the gums and cleans right up into those hard to reach places. It stimulates the production of saliva to help clear away the bad stuff, protect tooth enamel and also aids in the healing of any gum damage.

Our bone and chew products are all natural, with no added flavours or preservatives and come in a huge variety of shapes, sizes, species and cuts.

Be sure to choose a product that is the right size for your pooch, so that as well as chewing away with their front teeth, the treat can get right up the back of their jaw for some gnawing to clean those difficult spots.

After that, it’s time to throw away that doggy toothbrush, put your feet up and watch while Rufus partakes in his own beauty routine and actually enjoys it, then admire the shine of his freshly cleaned pearly whites!
