Proper Nutrition for Dental Health
Your pet’s teeth are a big part of their life because they use their mouths for everything. If your pet has poor dental health, it will be reflected in their behavior and overall lower quality of life. Our pet nutrition services at Confederate Ridge Animal Hospital are designed to improve your pet’s dental health.
Pet Nutrition for Dental Health
To improve the dental health of your pet, improve their diet. For optimal dental health, a pet needs the proper levels of vitamins, minerals, protein, and fats. Dry food is better for most pets’ teeth than we food. Wet food can get stuck between your pet’s teeth, leading to decay. Dry food helps to remove plaque and tartar buildup to keep your pet’s teeth clean and healthy. Different breeds have different dietary requirements. Some pets also need special diets to address certain medical conditions. Our veterinarian assesses each pet individually and provides nutritional recommendations based on each pet’s needs.
What Can I Do for Pet Dental Care?
Aside from pet nutrition, a dental cleaning is another key aspect of pet dental health. Cleaning your teeth just once a week is infinitely better than never doing it at all. Brushing your pet’s teeth helps keep plaque and tartar buildup to a minimum. If you do not want to clean your pet’s teeth on your own, we offer dental cleaning services in our office.
