Many pet owners are concerned about their canine teeth, but what many don’t know is that you can help your dog get sharp teeth naturally. There are plenty of ways to do this, and in today’s post, we’re going to be talking about how to get sharp canine teeth naturally. 

The first step is to ensure that the food you feed them has healthy ingredients like vegetables and meat with no fillers or preservatives. You also want to make sure they have a chew toy for every day of the week, so they stay busy during playtime. This will help train their mouth muscles while having fun at the same time!

8 Benefits of Having Sharp Canine Teeth:

1. Sharp Canine Teeth can perform more activities during an average day. Therefore, they are generally happier throughout the day because of their ability to be active and alert when needed; in addition, they tend to live up to 3 years longer than dogs with dull canines.

2. Sharp canine teeth take less time and effort for the host animal to chew through its food. During the winter, sharp canine teeth make it easier to chew through the snow for hydration, and in all seasons, they allow a dog to take down larger prey with fewer strikes because of the speed at which they can bite.

3. Sharp canine teeth are more effective at holding onto the meat during hunting trips or scavenging for meals. This prevents any meals from being lost and is more efficient for the host animal and its pack.

4. Sharp canine teeth are more active and alert than dull canines, making them better guard dogs because of their ability to quickly spot possible danger and respond accordingly. It also allows sharp canine owners to know that they will be better protected when necessary.

5. Sharp canine teeth last longer than dull canines, meaning that owners do not need to replace them as often and thus save money in dental care costs throughout the dog’s life.

6. Sharp canine teeth are more attractive than dull canines, leading to increased social standing for their hosts in most communities. As a result, many dogs find themselves more sought after by humans and dogs alike when they display their sharp canines.

7. Sharp canine teeth allow for more effective communication between animals near one another, increasing the odds of a peaceful encounter. Sharp teeth also allow animals to communicate results of hunting expeditions or feeding opportunities without drawing closer together than is necessary.

8. Sharp canine teeth allow the host animal to be more independent from humans. In addition, sharp canine teeth can generally provide for themselves and their pack in times of trouble or need due to being more sensitive than dull canines.

What Causes Dull Canine Teeth?

Reckless Chewing on Metal Objects

Dull canine teeth are usually the result of a mineral deficiency, which may occur for several reasons:

1. Poor nutrition (which could be caused by an improper diet or simply not eating enough)

2. Lack of exercise and stimulation. You want to ensure that your dog gets plenty of activities and is mentally stimulated as well. This will lower the risks of not only dull canine teeth but also obesity and other health problems.

3. Lack of water. Dogs should always have access to clean, fresh water.

4. Reckless chewing on metal objects (after teeth are dulled, they are more prone to being damaged further, so you must keep an eye out for any possible dangers)

5. Other health problems that may cause your dog to refuse to eat or swallow food properly.

6. Some medications can cause dull teeth as a side effect. Discuss the pros and cons of any medications with your veterinarian before deciding whether or not you would like to put your pet on them.

Five Effective Ways on How to Get Sharp Canine Teeth Naturally:

1. Feed Raw Meaty Bones:

The first and most important thing is to feed your dog raw meaty bones. The bone must be larger than the space between your dog’s canine teeth. If the bone is too small, it will just fall out of the mouth while chewing on it, not allowing any sharpening effect to take place. Raw bones are perfect for the teeth because they help to scrape off plaque and tartar.

2. Brush the Teeth:

Brushing your dog’s teeth is another way to help clean them. It does not take long, perhaps 5-10 minutes per session. Brush their teeth using a wet toothbrush with only water, or use an enzymatic toothpaste made for dogs specifically. There are bristles on the brush that you can gently use to brush your teeth.

3. Provide a Chew Toy:

Provide your dog with a chew toy so that they can naturally clean their teeth by chewing on it. Make sure the toy is large enough to not fall out of the mouth while chewing on it because if that happens, the sharpening effect will be lost.

4. Chew Sticks:

You can also give your dog chew sticks that are made specifically for dogs to chew on. Get some from your local pet store or online; these are very good for the teeth because they are abrasive enough to help remove tartar and plaque by chewing on them but not painful enough to cause dental problems.

Rawhide Chews Are Also Very Helpful

5. Rawhide Chews:

Rawhide chews are also very helpful in keeping the teeth sharp because they have an abrasive texture that helps clean the teeth while being chewed on, but they are not so abrasive that they damage or wear down the teeth. It is essential to keep them raw though they will not be as safe if they are cooked or baked.
