Healthy Mouth=Healthy Dog
May 20, 2008
|Dear Fellow Dog Lover,
Welcome to all the new readers whoíve been signing up for Bagginsí Bites;) I'm delighted you're joining the growing number of folks interested in their pet's health.
Iíd like to invite you all share pictures of your dog(s). Itís easy. Tell us a great story about your pet. We love to hear Ďem! You can comment on other pets too! Who's the funniest dog?
Healthy Mouth = Healthy DogIíll bet you brush your teeth every day. Probably more than once a day, right?
Your dogís teeth? Not so often.
Am I right? Does he have brown gunk on his teeth? Breath smell bad? When chewing a bone does he leave little traces of blood?
If you said "Yes" to any of these, Max is due for a thorough teeth cleaning. Just like humans, dogs can develop gum disease, gingivitis and other painful mouth conditions that can lead to health problems throughout the body.
If you arenít in the habit of brushing your dogís teeth, it may take a few tries before she lets you.
Work up to it slowly
This is enough for the first session or even first couple sessions, it depends on how amenable your pet is to this new interaction.
They need a healthy mouth too!

I have a 6 year old brindle boston terrier with allergy problems. I want some high quality treats and /or treat recipes that are good for her teeth and won't upset her GI tract. Also want info on food and/or recipes for allergic dogs. She is 19lbs and under. Any suggestions?
Many people who feed the raw diet of bones and meat swear their dogís teeth have never been cleaner and their allergies have disappeared.
And if you want ease into it? There are dehydrated and frozen foods on the market to simplify your life. Honest Kitchen Dehydrated Dog Food Embark 4 lb. Bag and Raw Advantage Organic Beef & Vegetables 1 lb.
Good luck Mollie! Best, Jennifer & Baggins
