Proper care of the dog's teeth (the puppy)

It is necessary to watch, and in a timely manner to care for the teeth of our Pets.

The majority of dogs to two years formed a yellow plaque on the teeth. This is not always a sign of disease.

Yellow plaque should be removed carefully, but not to be zealous, together with a touch can be easily removed and the tooth enamel that protects the tooth. Devoid of enamel, the tooth begins to deteriorate quickly.

To clean teeth, easy to use children's (or special dog) with a toothbrush or gauze pad.
The easiest way to clean teeth with gauze wrap the index finger, dip it into the toothpaste (children or dog).
Thoroughly clean the teeth, from the gums to the edges of the tooth. The inner surface of teeth without peeling it, the dog itself will clean her tongue.

Failure to comply with hygiene of the oral cavity in your pet may receive Tartar is hard plaque yellowish, brown or gray.

When the Tartar from dog's mouth appears an unpleasant odor, stomach constantly gets infected, here along with the food gets a lot of pathogens.
These deposits are not easy to clean off with a toothbrush. Regular brushing will not allow to form Tartar.

Upon detection of Tartar give your puppy to chew on something hard: crackers, dog biscuits, carrots, artificial bone, but not a rubber ball.
You should also give it less soft food, and often feed it with a granular solid food.
It's dry food, which must be written, that it prevents the appearance of Tartar.
The point is that each kibble "dressed" in a special shell made of polyphosphates, which clean teeth, dissolve plaque, improve blood flow to the gums.
At the time of feeding dogs system cleans the teeth mechanically.

In severe cases you need to contact the veterinarian to remove the Tartar.

The dog, like man, in the beginning acquires the milk teeth, which then, at the age of 4-5 months, then replaced with permanent, or indigenous.
The milk teeth differ from the permanent in that they do not have strong roots.
Sometimes a baby tooth doesn't fall out, stays in the gums, and permanent already cut.
The dog on one tooth will stick out two.
If it is observed at the beginning of the change of teeth, the baby tooth will likely still fall out.
But in that case, if the dog has already appeared molars, and dairy do not fall out (double row teeth), it is necessary to consult a specialist.
Newyawka milk teeth often interfere with the normal growth of indigenous, which can grow crooked, and dogs with malocclusion are not allowed to participate in exhibitions.

You can try to delete the delayed tooth forceps or another similar tool (tool, of course, must be clean).
The tooth is clamped and stretched in the growth direction (bottom — up, top — down), not much shaking in the hand, so as not to damage the gums.
If the tooth is held firmly, it is better not to try to get him alone, and to see a specialist. "Wobbly" tooth usually manages to pull it off.
In its place remains a small, slightly bleeding hole. It is not necessary specially to handle, the next day it will be delayed.
For show dogs it is very important to create a proper bite.
The bite is determined by closing the front teeth (incisors).
The standard of each breed usually indicates the type of occlusion. The defects of the bite — undershot or overshot to a significant extent, genetically determined.
However, the young dog you can spoil the bite, and if playing with her, pull her from the jaws of sticks, rags and so on, especially in the period of change of teeth.
