Episode 30: Your Greyhound’s Chompers

Dental health is related to overall health.

Two centuries ago, death certificates for people often listed “teeth” as the cause of demise. This doesn’t mean the people were chewed to death; it means their mouths were infected. Untreated, infection would travel to a person’s organs, which eventually led to death.  Two hundred years ago, people didn’t have modern dentistry or oral care.

In today’s world, we have modern dentistry and at-home oral care for people and our animal companions. Just like people, the health of greyhounds’ teeth and gums have a direct relationship with his or her overall health.

In this episode, discover the simple actions you can take to help keep your greyhound’s teeth and gums healthy.
