Caring for your pomeranians teeth - pets


Pomeranians have tiny mouths and itty bitty teeth, but not caring for them accurately can cause critical fitness troubles for your dog.

Dental disease in dogs can cause critical physical condition issues as the bacteria from infected gums and teeth can "spread" to other parts of the body and concern vital organs such as the heart, kidneys and intestines. Tarter or dental calculus starts off soft but can harden on the dogs teeth. Once hardened, it cannot be brushed away but requires a dental scaling just like you get in the dentist chair! If the teeth are left untreated, the loudening can cause the gums to develop into reddened and can also cause critical infections.

Does Your Pom Have Bad Teeth?

Pomeranians are prone to dental problems. Climax of tablet and tooth loss can be critical and cause tribulations with their daily routines. To tell if your dog has bad teeth, lift up his lips and check his teeth at the gumline - can you see tarter? Are the teeth white or discolored? Does his breath smell? Are there busted teeth?

All of these can be a symptom of the need for advance dog tooth care. Your veterinarian will in all probability do a dental check as part of they yearly medical and can counsel you as to the coverage of the problem, if any.

Providing Advance Pomeranian Tooth Care


Chewing on raw bones can be a good way for your dog to amputate built up tarter but Poms have very small mouths and may not be able to chew a real bone so you might want to try one of the manufactured bones that are made expressly for dog dental care. I would give an opinion anti cooked bones as they can come apart and cause destruction to the gums or intestine if swallowed.

Brushing Your Poms Teeth

Brushing is a vital part of dog tooth care and be supposed to be done at least once a week - rather every day. There are a load of flavored toothpastes formulated for dogs that your pet will love the taste of. You can use a feel brush (a rubber piece that fits on the end of your fiddle with with bristles), a hand held brush that looks much like a human tooth brush, or a diminutive brush that fits on the end of a "ring" which you put on your finger. My Pomeranian is exceedingly tiny and I find the "ring" brush works best for me.


This formula is done by your veterinarian and is cute much the same thing as the scaling you get at the dentist. The teeth are threadbare and polished and any loose or badly dented teeth are removed. Your dog is put under anesthesia for this method and it is quite costly. Accurate comb-out will limit the need for this to be done.

Getting Your Pomeranian Used To Brushing

While it's best to start when he is a puppy, it's not too late for your older Pom to get good dental care! Start off slowly, maybe with just a dab of the toothpaste on your feel so he can lick it off (my dog loves the taste!). Be sure to use a exclusive paste for dogs and not human toothpaste - human toothpaste can be damaging to your pet. You can get a paste from your vet that has enzymes that will help fight the bacteria. Also, you'll want a soft brush so you do not destruction the gums.

Take it one day at a time and increasingly get the dog used to you heartrending his head and aperture the mouth. Each day try to go one step additional - open the mouth, then touch his teeth, then his gums. Use your handle at first and establish the brush later. This can be a a bonding time for you and your dog - finally your pet may even look ahead to his once a night brushing! Bear in mind that your Pom is very small so you don't want to scrub almost and hurt the dog - just brush gently. You must try to brush your dogs teeth every day or at least every other day so that the tablet will not have a attempt to harden. While this may seem like a chore, think of it as an critical health check need for your pet.

Frequent coiffure and apposite dental care can add years to your Poms life!
