It’s estimated that over 80% of dogs over 3 years of age have some form of dental disease. Accumulate of bacteria in the mouth contribute to dental disease including gum disease (periodontal disease - inflammation and infection of the tissues surrounding the teeth).
Without regular attention and awareness of ways in which to prevent gum disease, your pet could develop a painful condition where the dog’s teeth become loose and may need to be pulled out (extracted).
Here are some of the way to help look after your pet's teeth and prevent dental disease:
1. Brushing your pet's teeth daily
2. Providing your pet with dental chews: when a dog chews or gnaws for a period of time, the salivary glands are stimulated and more saliva is produced and released into the mouth. Saliva has antibacterial properties, which in combination with the scrubbing effect from the dog chew, can help control the buildup of plaque, and therefore the development of periodontal disease.
3. Dental examination at the vet regularly.
Twistix Dental Treats are intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only.
The amount of treats appropriate for your dog depends on the type of treat and your dog’s age, health status, activity level, and size. A general guideline is that treats should make up less than 10 percent of your dog's daily food intake. Whilst 1-2 dental treats is a general guide, be mindful of the size and calorie makeup of that particular treat to determine the optimal quantity for your pet.
Yes, this product is suitable for puppies. However, as a general guide, we recommend giving treats to your puppy once it is 8 weeks or older.
Simply take out of the packet and give it directly to your dog. As with all treats and food, feeding your dog under supervision is recommended.
