Little Known Facts About Caring for Your Pet's Gums

By DrPoonehRamezani. | Activities for Your Dog Dog Info

Gums of Your Pet Dog and Health ConcernsAlmost all cats and dogs develop some type of gum disease in their life time. 90% of them die due to infection in their gums that transfer to their heart and other organs.

It is essential to care for them to help reduce and prevent gum infection and inflammation so that they can live longer and healthier. Many pet owners buy commercially available oral care products including popular chews, sprays, toothpaste etc. But, it is very important to know that most oral care products available in the market for pets either have minimum efficacy or have ingredients that harm your pet rather than help them. For example, chews are particularly popular and pet owners buy them to help clean pet's teeth. Even though these products provide some plaque removal or reduction, they don't provide any benefit for the pet's gums. Remember that pets normally don't die due to cavities on their teeth. They mostly lose their teeth due to gum disease and loss of bone due to gum infection. They do however develop swollen and inflamed gums over time if their gums are not taken care of properly. Manual brushing of their teeth helps remove plaque but if they have gum inflammation is painful and will hurt their gums more than it will help. Majority of commercially available toothbrushes have hard bristles. Hard bristles have been known to cause recession in the gums leading to gum disease. Commercially available pet toothpaste is full of toxins and ingredients such as artificial sweeteners and colors, alcohol and other ingredients that are extremely harmful for pets. Sprays, mostly have alcohol and artificial sweeteners that cause cavities and other bad ingredients that cause systemic problems and health issues.

We need to stop this or else it will directly affect your pet's health.

Research has shown that Vitamin C if directly applied to the gums or sprayed on the pet's teeth and gum area helps decrease gum inflammation that causes fatal gum disease. Same is true with human beings. Also the only natural sweetener that is proven to be safe for pets is Stevia. Next time before you buy a product, read the label and make sure you are buying something that is helpful not harmful. You need products that are effective with zero side effects... Always make sure you buy products that are 100% natural, organic and made of human grade ingredients. Always take care of your pet's gums. We recommend spraying their mouth with a spray once a day and cleaning their teeth and gums at least 3X per week. This needs to be part of their routine in order to be effective. If you help reduce your pet's gum inflammation, you add years to their life. Gums of Dogs and Dog Seat Covers: Cargo, Dog Bed Liner, Bed Cover: 30% Off Premium Seat Covers

Puppy misadventure

My 8 month old lab puppy ate something and it required a trip to the vet. They administered peroxide to induce vomiting. He seemed unaffected by the entire experience and after waiting 45 minutes with no results, we were sent home. Naturally, he threw up in the car on the way home. I had recently bought the split rear seat cover. It saved the back seat of my car and cleaned up beautifully. I can only imagine how the cloth seat would have absorbed the odor and stain without the protection of the seat cover. Buying your seat cover was the smartest decision I've made. Love the hammock option.

XL rear seat hammock cover

I own a 2015 Toyota Tundra CrewMax. I was concerned that the XL seat cover wouldn't be big enough for our pups. However, after installing it easily, our pups took to it immediately! Ellie loved the hammock part that comes off the seat a little and slept in it on one of our most recent road trips.

Perfect Fit!

We had fallen back to just putting a sheet over our seats as our Bernese Mountain Dog and our cars never found a perfect match with any of the seat covers we tried until this front seat cover. We immediately put in an order for the backseat cover from 4Knines to give our BMD more room.

Customer Service

I ordered a dog cover for my rear seat. When I placed it, one of the straps was not holding tight so I sent an email to the company that day. I received an immediate response and an immediate replacement. I was so impressed! I love the no hammock cover. It's perfect!
