Essential Oil Dog Breath 5 ml
The most important thing you can do to add years to your dog's life is to keep their teeth clean. This is so important in order to keep your dog healthy. Tartar builds up daily on your dog's teeth. You can even sometimes see the tan/brown buildup at the gum line caused by layers of bacteria.
This leads to gingivitis or gum inflammation/infection. When this occurs - the bacteria in the tartar have access to your dog's capillaries under the gum line. Once this bacteria is flowing through the bloodstream it starts wreaking havoc. The two places that it loves to "lodge" is in the tubules of the kidneys and on the valves of the heart. This is why we often tell patients and clients that not cleaning the teeth can cause heart or kidney problems.
The next stage is periodontal disease and this occurs when more time goes by with no dental cleaning. It leads to bone loss and loose teeth. Needless to say, the breath gets pretty bad at this point. Chewing and eating become more difficult and even painful.
Most of my dog and cat patients need their teeth cleaned professionally about once a year. Some pets can go a bit longer and some cannot go that long. In general, shorter nosed dogs have more crowded teeth and develop tartar more quickly. Genetics also play a role - same as in people.
In addition, we recommend that you add "Dog Breath" daily. This is an essential oil you place on the gums, on a favorite chew toy, in with their toothpaste, or even in their water. It has a holistic approach of improving oral health the natural way. Dog breath contains a combination of essential oils including copaiba, helichrysum, peppermint, myrhh and coconut. These oils have a variety of properties including antimicrobial, deodorizing and antinflammatory.
A healthy mouth is of the utmost importance for your pet to live a happy, healthy, thriving life.
Ingredients: Fractionated Coconut Oil, Essential Oils of Copaiba (Copaifera officinalis), Peppermint (Mentha piperita), Helichrysum (H. italicum), Myrrh (Comminphora myrrha).
