Good dental health is essential for your dog’s overall health and well-being.
Some degree of dental disease affects eight out of ten dogs before they’re even three years old, causing bad breath, tartar, gingivitis, and discomfort while eating. Left untreated, full-blown periodontal disease can result, and the infections and abscesses it causes can be very painful for the dog. Periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss; even more seriously, the bacteria can spread to bodily organs such as the heart and kidneys, causing infections and damage.
But it doesn’t have to be like this. You can prevent periodontal disease in your dog. One of the best ways is to feed him a healthy, high quality, whole foods-based diet free of empty carbs, fillers and additives. Regular dental checkups at the vet are also important.
An additional solution is to feed your dog using the DentaDish. This easy-to-use slow feeder bowl cleans his teeth while he eats, and helps prevent dental and gum disease and the bad breath associated with these problems. The bowl features soft bristles on the inside that gently but effectively clean the dog’s teeth and reduce the formation of plaque, tartar and gingivitis.
Because the bristles break up the bowl’s surface area, they also force the dog to eat more slowly, preventing him from inhaling his food. In fact, the DentaDish can make mealtime last up to ten times longer when compared to regular bowls. This reduces the risk of bloating, a dangerous condition that can occur when a dog eats too quickly and gulps down a lot of air; the air turns into gas and causes the abdomen to swell, putting pressure on the heart, lungs and other organs. Dogs that gulp down their food might also feel unsatisfied, which can cause overeating and begging.
The DentaDish is made with food-safe materials and is both BPA- and phthalate-free. The non-skid rubber bottom keeps it in place, prevents spills and creates a firm grip on slippery surfaces. It’s dishwasher safe, comes in two sizes, and includes measurement lines (cups and grams) on the inside of the bowl to make sure the appropriate quantity of food is served. The small size holds up to two cups of food and is recommended for dogs under 40 pounds, while the larger bowl can hold up to four cups and is recommended for dogs over 40 pounds.
DentaDish is an easy and efficient way to feed your dog while helping to maintain his oral health and hygiene.
