Signs of dental disease

February 12, 2023

Do you know the five signs of dental disease?

Here are 5 signs of dental disease in dogs to watch for. 

  1. Bad doggy breath isn’t normal or unavoidable! It’s a sign of dental disease.
  2. Red gums: Two thirds of a dog’s tooth are under the gum line which means dental disease can live where you can’t see it.
  3. Discoloured yellow or brown teeth: without cleaning, plaque build-up start in as little as 24 hours.
  4. Excessive drool or signs of discomfort
  5. Difficulty chewing or starting to drop some of their food around their bowl.

4 out of 5 dogs have some form of dental disease by the time they are 3 years old, however as little as 2% of pet owners actually brush their pet’s teeth.*

Luckily, WHIMZEES® by Wellness all-natural daily dental treats makes dental care easy! Dogs can’t count, we know. But you can. And it really is that easy to keep your dog’s teeth healthy.


Thanks to the increased dietary fibre, WHIMZEES® by Wellness treats have a firmer structure. This firmer texture promotes a longer chew time for increased cleaning time as well as naturally helping to polish your dog’s teeth while chewing. WHIMZEES® by Wellness are proven to last 3x longer than the leading competitors: 3X longer chew time = 3 X more fun = 3X bigger smiles!
