”Human do you not get it, I’m about to eat your hand” Lily barked and I got the message.
That being said my alternative was to find a photo to illustrate the point of the article……. meaning ……...if you can brush your pet’s teeth & your pet welcomes the attention, it appears you have the whole dog/cat dental issue under control…and don’t need any suggestions from Ark Naturals...
Seriously, is there anyone in cyber world who does not understand pet stinky breath? I think not. And, here’s a scary statistic. Studies have shown that between 70-80% of all dogs and cats somewhere between the ages of 2 and 3 years old begin showing signs of oral health issues.
In 2008 when Ark Naturals introduced its BrushLess Toothpaste and Plaque Zapper, pet guardians worldwide began to email me for advice, wondering if our dental products were the magic dental cure-all. I always respond – it’s only a piece of the puzzle. Pet dental health is a joint venture between you, your pet and your pet’s vet.
Typically pet owners think that pet stinky breath is the real problem. Sorry, pet stinky breath is socially unacceptable, disgusting to humans and probably interferes with your ability to cuddle and kiss – but it’s only the tip of the iceberg. Pet dental disease affects your pet’s ability to chew and digest their food and possibly even play with their toys. At its most serious, dental disease can potentially affect your pet’s heart, kidneys and liver.
Remember at the end of the day – you are the one making the decisions.
We urge you to consider the age and health of your pet – What may be appropriate for one pet may not be appropriate for your friend’s pet.
Oh and one more thing – stinky breath is not a deal breaker for me. I still kiss every dog I love.
