February is National Pet Dental Health Month. Most of the articles and blogs being shared with pet parents focus on prevention. This is very important, but what if your pet is already suffering from dental issues?
As the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) reports, by the age of three, nearly all dogs and cats have some form of oral disease.
Telltale signs include:
- Bad breath (doggy breath is not normal!)
- Red gums
- Loose teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Bleeding from the mouth
- Loss of appetite
- Frequent pawing at the face or rubbing the face on furniture or the floor
If any of these symptoms are present, a trip to the vet is a must. Whatever course of action is decided upon, relieving the discomfort is a top priority for any pet parent. This is where Treatibles Organic Full Spectrum Hemp Oil with naturally occurring CBD comes in.
The most common cause of inflammation in the mouth is gum disease. Treatibles oil, which can promote a natural inflammatory response in the body, can help when applied directly on your pet’s gums. The oil – we recommend the 250 mg or 750 mg bottle – can also offer relief from discomfort. The organic coconut oil base in Treatibles oil dropper bottles can support the body’s normal ability to fight bacteria, which is often a culprit in gum disease.
Taken internally, the full spectrum hemp oil can address discomfort from the inside out, support the immune system and instill calm. We have found that with cats, applying Treatibles Topical Cream to the tips of the ears, offers these benefits as well. This is because our cream includes penetrating ingredients for maximum absorption.
We would be remiss if we didn’t share a few outstanding products recognized for helping to prevent dental disease in dogs and cats:
- ProdDen PlaqueOff (powder and chews)
- Teef (pet toothpaste, fingerbrush, dental spray)
- Earthbath (wipes)
When it comes to toothpaste, it is very important to use one made especially for pets. Many kinds of toothpaste for humans contain xylitol, which can be extremely toxic to pets.
Bottom line – ff your pet is showing any signs of discomfort or visible oral issues, make an appointment with your veterinarian right away. For a less stressful ride over, remember to dose your pet with Treatibles!
