Libby’s Dental Health Journey
Libby is a Pure Bred Miniature Schnauzer who will be turning 9 years old this March.
Throughout her life I must admit her dental care has been hit or miss.
She had some minor surgery about 4 years ago that required her to be under anesthetic so we asked that her teeth be cleaned also. Her teeth seemed good for a while and her breath did not smell unpleasant. But, sadly again I did not keep up with her dental care.
This past year her breath has been horrible! At a recent checkup the vet said Libby measured a #2 on the scale for plaque buildup. I decided we would once again get her dental work done. When the vet did the x-rays it was discovered that she had a chipped tooth, a back tooth missing, another that was loose and a big molar had been broken off at the gum line.
I was horrified! It just about broke my heart to think of the pain she must be in!
I was so relieved when they could extract the bothersome teeth and clean up all the rest.
Within 2 or 3 days post op Libby was a changed dog. She was happier and more playful than normal. Her nervousness subsided and she even "looked" more relaxed.
We now have been faithfully brushing every night and applying an oral gel on her teeth. She drinks water with an additive in it ("Healthy Mouth") to help protect her teeth and we have added an "oral health" dog food to her diet. The damage to her teeth was likely caused by a beef bone, which we no longer give her. Now she gets her "chewing fix" on healthy "Veggie Dent" treats.
I urge all pet owners to get their pets teeth examined every year including x-rays to see if there are problems undetected by just looking. It is very important that you brush your pet’s teeth and feed them dental chews to help keep plaque from building up. Talk to your vet about proper diet and other ways you can improve your pet’s dental health. We want what’s best for our Libby so that she stays healthy and happy and pain free. I hope every pet owner feels the same way we do!
