Pearly white teeth

When we were small mummy failed to clean our teeth with doggie tooth brush so our little pearly teeth have been getting messier over the years.  Mummy and daddy have tried various yummy products to clean our teeth but nothing worked very well, because even I wanted to chew more my tummy is extra sensitive so mummy and daddy didn’t want me to have them too much.

Then, one day daddy said ” You have a bit of bad breath, Coco.”
I was shocked.  My love of life, daddy, said I was smelly.  Can you imagine how embarrassed I was?

Then then, when Silky went to the vet’s for her annual booster the vet mentioned her teeth were messy.

歯ブラシを使ってのCocoとシルキーの歯磨きが出来なくて断念した数年前。時々いろいろなカミカミするものを与えてきたけど、いったん付いた歯垢は取れなくて、あまり長く与えると超お腹の弱いCocoは下痢するし・・・と気付いたらCocoは口臭がきつくなり、シルキーは年に一度の予防接種の時に歯が汚いねぇと指摘されてしまいました。




What they recommened was teeth cleaning with general sleeping thing but mummy and daddy don’t want to do it because I have had a horrible and scary experience after this general sleeping thing, you see.

Now, mummy and daddy had to do something else but using general sleeping thing.
Firstly, daddy got a scary tooth scaler.
I didn’t know what it was.  One day, when I was woofly sleepy mummy held me and started scrape my little teeth.
Woof…what is it…Zzzzz
I was too sleepy to refuse it but gradually I was awake and I hated it.  Silky was out of control if you want to know.  This is me trying to refuse the scary scaler.

動物病院で勧めるのは全身麻酔を使ってのクリーニング。Cocoは麻酔で嘔吐、下痢で水すら飲めなくなって、飲むとその10倍ぐらい嘔吐するというとんでもないリアクションを起こした怖い過去があるので麻酔は絶対にしたくない。しかも歯のクリーニングのために命を落としでもしたら冗談じゃない。そこでまずはスケーラーをネットで購入。眠さのあまりボーっとしてたCocoだけどやっぱり嫌がって難しい。シルキーなんて大暴れするから全然ダメ。

 

Then, mummy went to the pet shop and asked about teeth cleaning stuff.  The gentleman manager explained very thoroughly.  Mummy considered this and that, those and these, and finally she decided to try yummy Deer antlers.

It was so yummy that Silky and I fell in love with it immediately.  We savoured, nibbled, licked and chewed.

One night, mummy was holding me and checking my teeth.  I felt mummy’s nail between my messy tartar and gum, and mummy clicked and WOOF!

Mummy shouted “Oh my god!! It came off!!!”.
Mummy tried another tooth and again click!!
Now, daddy held Silky and did the same.  Click!!

That was amazing.
Silky and I have been chewing the yummy deer’s antlers since then and our teeth are getting cleaner and I don’t have smelly breath anymore.  Phew…..
Although it is woofly yummy we don’t chew all day long, if you must know.  We only chew a couple of times a day , not too long and of course, mummy or daddy are with us.
Sometimes I fall asleep with my beloved antler.

これでは歯石はとれないわってことでペットショップで相談。いろいろなことを教えてもらって、あれこれ商品を見せてもらって、今回は鹿の角を試してみることに。持って帰ったらフタリとも大喜び。そしてある晩、歯石を指でいじっていると、歯石と歯茎の間に爪が入ったのでカリってやったらポロッと取れた!え!と思って隣もやってみたらまた取れた!ダディもシルキーをやってみたら取れた!わーい!

 

Mummy got a bottle of plaque off, too, and we’ve been using it.
Also, also, we have these small finger brush each; yellow for Silky and pink for me. Mummy cleans our teeth every night.  Silky and I hate being scaled with the scary scaler but being cleaned with this finger brush is not bad.  We wait our turn for it and mummy is happy.

もちろん鹿角をカミカミしてる時は一緒にいてるし、あまり長時間は噛ませません。 他にもプラークオフ、布製フィンガーブラシも使って毎日お手入れ。すると、Cocoの口臭がなくなったではないですか!わーい!

 

Only annoying thing for us is mummy wants to check our teeth too often.  She puts us on her lap and admire the difference between before and now.
I want daddy to stop her but daddy likes it, too.  Sigh…..
This is me being held on mummy’s lap.

Coco (800x800)

今では毎晩Cocoとシルキーの歯を見るのが習慣に。毎晩ていうか、一日に何度も。これは私の膝の上に乗っけて、これから歯をチェックするところ。口の中をいじられるのはそれほど嫌じゃないみたいだけど(時々噛もうとするけど)、スケーラーはどうしても嫌みたい。完全に歯石を取るのは無理としても、とにかく毎日お手入れしてキレイにしていこうと思います。今までやってあげなくてごめんよ。マミーは大反省してます。

 

Well, anyway, I think I can accept being checked my teeth many many times a day but I don’t like the scary scaler, daddy.

      Hello Chloe & Sopie,
      We got the antlers from the pet shop around the corner. I think you can get them on-line, too. Love Coco and Silky

    ハミガキ、難しいよねー。我が家は最近、わんこの歯医者さんのジェルと乳酸菌を使って、口内環境の改善を図ってみています。

    ちょっと高いのと、たまにサボっちゃうけど、ちゃんと続けてるとお口の匂いは改善したと思う(*^^*)
    朝は乳酸菌をご飯にかけて、夜はジェルを指につけて、歯にゴシゴシしてます。
    試してみては?

      なるほど~。日本には色々ありますね。とりあえず今使ってる物でやっていこうと思ってます。
      鹿角はけっこう良いみたいで、かなり歯垢が取れましたよ。細かいところがなかなか難しいけど、徐々に成果が見られれば嬉しいかな。とにかく全麻は避けたいです。
