All Play. No Plaque: WHIMZEES by Wellness Puppy Chews

Good dental habits start young.
Give your puppies a head start in dental health. 

As an experienced breeder, you will already know how important dental health is for your dog’s overall health and wellbeing.

More than 80% of dogs develop dental disease by the time they are an adult. The gradual build-up of plaque on a puppy’s young teeth can in time develop into tartar, gingivitis and if left unchecked this can develop into discomfort, bleeding, and in advanced cases, it can lead to systemic health problems.

Prevention is always better than a cure, so you will know there is no better time to start looking after their teeth than when they’re young. As an expert in breeding dogs, you can play a big role in helping new puppy parents understand the importance of dental care for their puppy when they take them to their new homes, and the benefits of starting these habits early.

Helping your puppy owners to start dental care habits

As a breeder, you will have the platform to educate your puppy owners on how daily care is an essential process to raising a healthy puppy. Not only will dental care help them to support their pup’s overall health and wellbeing, but it will also introduce the pup to being handled and cared for in preparation for any future vet visits and treatments.

When it comes to specifically supporting their dental health, you can help guide your pet parents to get their new pup used to dental care habits. You might have your own tips, but here are our tips which you can share:

Step 1: Get the pup used to their mouth being gently opened.

Step 2: Introduce a basic brushing technique by gently running a finger along the gums and teeth.

Step 3: Eventually introduce a finger-brush or toothbrush to support the daily cleaning of their teeth. 

Ensure your new puppy owners know this experience of having their mouth handled will contribute to the pup staying calm during dental care routines.

Inform your puppy owners of different dental care techniques

You can ensure your puppy owners know that choosing a high-quality dental care product tailored to the pups age can be one of the best ways to help control dental disease and, whilst brushing with a toothbrush will always remain the gold standard for dental care, finding an additional dental chew which is tailored for your pup’s teeth is a great option to both clean teeth and also alleviate discomfort whilst they’re teething.

The mechanical chewing action of a dental chew will gently scrape the plaque and tartar buildup off the teeth in each bite, whilst also promoting gum health and fresh breath. With less plaque and tartar buildup, the cycle of dental disease progression is considerably slowed and even better, they can enjoy a tasty reward.
