Dear Veterinary Healthcare Professional:

Did you know that oral health issues are the most common health problems reported in dogs? The fact is, as many as 80% of dogs develop some form of periodontal disease by the age of three.

For the oral health of your patients, a daily home dental care program—including tooth brushing—is an important step for owners to take in between annual visits to your office.

As part of that daily program, dental chews can provide a simple and effective way of helping clean a dog’s teeth. In fact, results of third-party clinical testing show that PEDIGREE® DENTASTIX® significantly reduce plaque and tartar buildup.

What's more, dogs love the taste of PEDIGREE® DENTASTIX®, so they'll welcome this treat into their daily routine.

The information on this site is being provided to give you a better understanding of how PEDIGREE® DENTASTIX® products can help improve the oral care of your patients. This includes a summary of the efficacy trial for the PEDIGREE® DENTASTIX® product, as well as an article on biometrics in the oral care of dogs. The understanding of oral biometrics in all sizes and shapes of dogs plays an important role in the design and efficacy of the PEDIGREE® DENTASTIX® product, and makes this brand different from most other products in the marketplace.

Together, we can help more dogs enjoy the benefits of good oral health. If have any questions or comments, please contact us.

Oral Care Tips

  • 1 Incorporate DENTASTIX® treats into your dog’s daily routine. They taste great and help clean teeth while your dog chews.

  • 2 Brush your dog's teeth regularly and check your dog's mouth for signs of gum disease—like bad breath—or red, swollen gums. Notify your vet if you notice these symptoms.

  • 3 Take your dog to the vet on a regular basis—this is imperative for your dog's oral health. Your vet will look for signs of gum disease, provide treatments, and recommend ways to help manage or prevent oral disease.

I've noticed some bleeding around my dog's gums. What causes that?

Bleeding of the gums is one of the early warning signs of gingivitis, the first stage of periodontal disease. Other signs of this condition are bad breath and reddening and swelling of the gums where they meet the teeth. Gingivitis is reversible with proper care, so take your dog to the vet as soon as possible, and develop a home oral care program that best fits your dog. If left untreated, however, gingivitis can progress to more serious—and non-reversible—forms of periodontal disease.

What's the best way to keep my dog's teeth as clean as possible?

Daily brushing is the most effective way of keeping a dog's teeth clean. Be sure to use a toothbrush that's specially designed for dogs, or you can use a very soft human toothbrush. And never use toothpaste that was developed for humans. Use only doggie toothpaste. In addition to daily brushing, you can also feed your dog snacks that aid in oral care, like PEDIGREE® DENTASTIX® treats for dogs. They are clinically proven to significantly reduce plaque and tartar build-up.

Is it true that gum disease can lead to more serious health problems for dogs?

Yes. If periodontal disease is left untreated, bacteria from your dog's mouth could enter his bloodstream and travel to his heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs. If you suspect that your dog has gum disease or any problem related to his teeth or gums, take him to the vet for an oral exam.
