Time to brush up on dental care? JSAP compares tooth brushing with other approaches to dental care in dogs

In this article, Professor Nick Jeffery, editor-in-chief of the Journal of Small Animal Practice (JSAP), our Official Scientific Journal, highlights a paper that may have an impact on the health and welfare of a huge number of dogs...

A study by Allan et al compares the ability of tooth brushing, a specialty dental diet and everyday dental chews to minimise recurrence of plaque after dogs have had a veterinary tooth cleaning session. The outcome defined tooth brushing as superior to the other methods and, because of the careful design, there is little reason to doubt the face value of the results. “This study is an impressive example of how it is possible to carry out high quality clinically-relevant research in primary care practice,” says Nick Jeffery. “It provides very strong evidence in favour of recommending tooth brushing following veterinary dental cleaning.”

What lives in the gut of dogs and cats?

Iveta Becvarova, DVM, MS, Diplomate ACVN,Director, Global Academic & Professional Affairs, Hill's Pet Nutrition Inc.

Ever wonder why all the fuss about the gut microbiome and what it has to do with veterinary medicine? Scientists once thought that these microbes were just a random cluster of germs originating from the environment.  However, they have now confirmed that the gut microbiota is a living ecosystem of unique commensal microorganisms that provides many benefits to dogs and cats, from maintaining gut health to regulating other organs. Scientists at Hill’s® Pet Nutrition are now working to better understand this key aspect of animal health and nutrition to continue to provide the best nutrition for your patients.

Did you know that the microbiota of individual dogs and cats have similar functions, but that recent studies have shown that each dog and cat harbors a very unique and individual microbial profile?  They say that ‘you are what you eat’ – and the same is true for our pets. Gut microbiota influence many areas of dog and cat health providing nutritional benefits, supporting the production of beneficial postbiotics, modulating the immune system and protecting the host against pathogens.

Nutrition is the most effective, sustainable and safe way to modulate the gut in the long-term – something that cannot be always claimed for other interventions such as antibiotics, probiotics or synbiotics. Hill’s Pet Nutrition is at the forefront of this emerging area of animal health and nutrition as it works to transform the lives of our pets.
