With each first-time teeth brushing session, SOPRA GINZA will be giving one complimentary toothbrush to each doggie~

All dental products will also be having a promotional 20% off!

Bad breath in dogs are signs of the start of dental diseases.

When tartar/plaque builds up in an animal's mouth, bacteria starts to breed. These germs can spread through the animal's oesophageal tract, to affect the heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs.

Below are some of the common dental diseases preventable by brushing your dog's teeth;
  • Periodontal disease is a painful infection between the tooth and the gum that can result in tooth loss and spread infection to the rest of the body. Signs are loose teeth, bad breath, tooth pain, sneezing and nasal discharge.
  • Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gums caused mainly by accumulation of plaque, tartar and disease-producing bacteria above and below the gum line. Signs include bleeding, red, swollen gums and bad breath. It is reversible with regular teeth cleanings.
  • Halitosis—or bad breath—can be the first sign of a mouth problem and is caused by bacteria growing from food particles caught between the teeth or by gum infection. Regular tooth-brushings are a great solution.
  • Swollen gums develop when tartar builds up and food gets stuck between the teeth. Regularly brushing your dog’s teeth at home and getting annual cleanings at the vet can prevent tartar and gingivitis.
  • Proliferating gum disease occurs when the gum grows over the teeth and must be treated to avoid gum infection. An inherited condition common to boxers and bull terriers, it can be treated with antibiotics.
  • Mouth tumors appear as lumps in the gums. Some are malignant and must be surgically removed.
  • Salivary cysts look like large, fluid-filled blisters under the tongue, but can also develop near the corners of the jaw. They require drainage, and the damaged saliva gland must be removed.
  • Canine distemper teeth can occur if a dog had distemper as a puppy. Adult teeth can appear looking eroded and can often decay. As damage is permanent, decayed teeth should be removed by a vet.

If regular teethbrushing is not done at home, chew toys and dental treats are recommended to help remove soft tartar and build strong teeth.

Teeth brushing is only $5/session. So what are you waiting for? It's time to freshen your lovely pets' breath for that goodnight kiss~ <3
