Moberg, Emil, 2009. Profylaktisk hundtandvård i hemmet. First cycle, G1E. Skara: SLU, Dept. of Animal Environment and Health (until 231231)



Toothbrushing is the best available method in remaining or restore dental health in dogs. This report treats different aspects about toothbrushing and other dental home care treatments in dogs. Questions like why the dog’s teeth should be brushed, what effects toothbrushing have on dental health and how the teeth can be brushed are treated. Furthermore complements to toothbrushing are treated, the options and their effects. Finally there is a part about guidance to petowners. If the dog does not receive any dental home care at all after dental scaling, the oral health soon gets back to the same level as before the treatment. If the owner does not care for the dog’s teeth, diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis can proceed and give rise to several complications. To give petowners the right information and make sure they follow the advices is thereby an important task for the animal nursing staff. In connection with this report an inquiry was made where petowners were asked about dental home care in their dog.
