Dog Dental Care
Natural enzymes are one of the most effective ways to promote good dental health in dogs. They fight plaque and bacteria, keep breath fresh, and are super easy to use in the form of premoistened wipes!
Dog parents know they must take care of their pup’s dental health, but with all the products on the market, it can be tough to know what to buy. For an oral hygiene routine to be successful, the products must be easy to use and effective. Toothbrush wipes that use the power of natural enzymes check all the boxes: they’re effective, safe, natural, and simple!
The Process of Periodontal Disease in Dogs
Dog parents have recently started paying more attention to the importance of oral care for dogs. We know it’s just as critical for their health as it is for ours! Here’s how easily dental disease in dogs can happen:
- Plaque builds up on the teeth
- Over time, the plaque hardens into tartar
- The bacteria in plaque cause inflammation of the gums, aka gingivitis
- Untreated gingivitis progresses to full-blown periodontal disease
Periodontal disease can cause bleeding, pain, discomfort, infections, abscesses, tooth loss, difficulty eating, and even infections in other parts of the body. While this may sound scary, there is good news. A regular dental hygiene routine for dogs can prevent all of this!
What Do Enzymes Have to Do with Canine Oral Health?
There are lots of dental hygiene products for dogs, including toothpaste, chews, powders, and more. But one of the most effective ways to manage your dog’s oral hygiene is with enzymes. Enzymes are special proteins that speed up chemical reactions in cells. For example, have you ever experienced stinging or itching when you eat pineapple? That’s because pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain that breaks down tissues in the mouth.
This is why enzymatic cleaners are so powerful, and you can even use enzymes to clean teeth!
Harnessing Nature’s Power for Better Doggy Dental Care
Plaque is sticky and can be tough to remove, even when you brush your pup’s teeth regularly. And that’s where enzymes come in! They break the bonds between the bacteria and fungi that make up plaque, making the plaque easier to remove.
Jax & Cali Toothbrush Wipes use a powerful and effective natural enzyme blend that breaks down plaque, fights bacteria, freshens the breath, prevents periodontal disease and inflammation, and promotes good dental hygiene. The premoistened wipes slide over two fingers for easy access to your dog’s teeth and gums. And the thick, textured fabric is durable and effective at scrubbing away plaque. What's more, the wipes are made with natural ingredients, contain no harmful chemicals, are alcohol- and SLS-free, and are safe for daily use.
