Myths, we all believed one at some point in our lives. Sometimes it is really hard to tell fact from fiction. People we see as smart or we admire may tell you something you later find to be untrue. It can be disheartening and sometimes surprising. I am about to take you down that road so get ready! Let's bust a myth shall we? What is it you ask? Dry dog food keeps your dog's teeth clean. "What?!? That's a myth? No way!" Sorry, but yes. Dry food cleans your dogs teeth as much as eating pretzels cleans ours. Now who doesn't enjoy a good pretzel now and then, am I right? But, I still brush my teeth twice a day and floss and rinse with mouth wash....OK back to our dogs. If your still skeptical let me ask you this, why would 8o% of all dogs get oral disease by age 3 if hard dog food cleaned their teeth? (Oh and if you're wondering that 20% are dog's that get their teeth cleaned) Because dry food does NOT prevent tartar and plaque build up any better than us eating pretzels. That's the truth my friends! Stay with me because we are going to go on a journey about your dog's oral health. I am off to the store...I have a hankering for some pretzels.
If this motivated you to improve your dog's oral health, leave me a message under this post! I can't wait to chat with you, oh, and bring some pretzels! LOL
