In fact, this is not the case, teeth grinding is certainly a period that a dog must go through in his life. However, if the parents cannot face this problem well during this period of time, it may have life-long effects on the dog, such as severe tooth wear or premature loss.
Studies have found that there are many reasons for dog teeth grinding, including natural growth patterns and acquired growth environment.
1. Tooth growth period. Puppies will feel uncomfortable when they start to grow teeth. In order to alleviate this discomfort, they develop the habit of grinding their teeth. Some dogs will also grind their teeth by chewing on furniture and other objects.
2. Indigestion. Dogs with poor digestion can also cause teeth grinding.
3. There are parasites in the body. If there are parasites in the dog's body, then it is very likely to have teeth grinding, because the parasites secrete toxins, and the toxins can stimulate the dog's central nervous system and cause teeth grinding.
In view of the specific situation of the dog's teeth grinding, parents must develop a set of practical plans, so as to ensure that the dog smoothly through the teeth grinding period.
First of all, in the daily maintenance of dogs, it is necessary to pay attention to supplement the dog food with comprehensive nutrition, and do not feed the same food for a long time. Analyze whether the food that was previously fed to it was too hard or not well digested. This can be learned by observing the poop of the dog. If the stool is dry and hard, it is indigestion. When the dog has indigestion, parents should choose softer foods, and high-fiber ingredients can be added to the food.
If it is a puppy, it is recommended not to feed too much meat food too early. In addition, do not feed the dog before going to bed, because feeding before going to bed can easily cause the dog to accumulate food, which is extremely harmful to the body.
Secondly, parents usually interact with the dog more, on the one hand, it can improve the dog's physical fitness, and on the other hand, it can soothe the dog's psychology. During the interaction, parents can choose molar toys suitable for their dogs, such as loofah toys, plush toys, and rubber toys.
Again, take your dog to the hospital regularly to see if there are parasites in the dog's stomach. Dogs who are often outdoors are more susceptible to parasites. Therefore, in order to prevent dogs from infecting parasites, the owner should deworm them regularly. When the parasites in the dog's body are eliminated, they will reduce the phenomenon of teeth grinding.
It may seem trivial, but it should not be ignored. For a dog, the bruxism period is its necessary period. For parents, how to ensure the healthy growth of dogs is the primary task. During the molar period, interact with it more and supplement it with molar toys. I believe that the dog will be happy. Of course, a balanced and nutritious diet is essential.
