 Dental Pain Remedies that Work
I just returned from a great camping trip with my family and neighbors

The weather was pretty cooperative, the water was warm, the kids happy, and except for...

That EXCEPT for a sore tooth ( of my own...) A few different 'remedies' were tried, although it 'cured' itself with a whole lot of jostling... being dragged behind a boat a high speed, spun in circles by a 15 year old son intent on having his father 'bite the dust'...

Here is some of what you can use for your own pets:

Tooth pain

Similar to us, our dogs and cats also experience tooth pain, the primary difference being that they really don't get cavities as we do.

In our pets it is more common to have gingivitis, gum recession, and too abscesses.

But regardless of the cause, it is uncomfortable.

You may see your dog or cat not acting themselves, they may have difficulty chewing, or you may even see a swollen, red area around the tooth.

This is painful, and will require care.

There are some things that you can do at home.

1. Cloves

This is the preferred home remedy for people, and can also help your dog or cats. Cloves have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antioxidant and anesthetic properties.

You can purchase clove oil, or grind 1-2 cloves and mix with olive oil
Dab a cotton ball in clove oil and rub it directly on the sore tooth.

2. Garlic

Garlic has been used by many people for tooth pain. Garlic is antibacterial, and will also help with gum infections.
Crush a garlic clove, mix in olive oil, wait 15 minutes, then apply this to the affected area with a Q tip.

3. HERBAL TINCTURE. A tincture of OREGON GRAPE, GOLDENSEAL, and MYRRH can be liberally applied to your pet’s gums with a cotton swab.

4. HEALING LOTION. Calendula lotion can be used to heal ulcers in the mouth and promote healing of damaged tissue.

5. CHAMOMILLA. This is used to decrease puppy and kitten chewing, alleviating some of the signs of teething pain.

6. MYRRH. This can be mixed with water and applied topically to the inflamed gum tissue to decrease gum inflammation.

7. HOMEOPATHIC: ARNICA. For acute pain/injuries to the mouth or teeth. I have used it myself for a tooth root abscess. Dose: 30C four times daily.

Veterinary Secrets Pet of the Week
This is a picture of Boston an 11 year old chocolate lab, who had been in the SPCA for over 7months. We have had Boston for over a year and he has been enjoying his senior years romping around our riverside acreage.

Dyna the hound, is also an SPCA rescue dog. Dyna was found wondering the streets, she was extremely timid and appeared to have been abused, when she was found. It has taken Dyna awhile to gain her confidence and learn to become a dog, but as you can see from the picture, she appears to have reached a good level of comfort and confidence! Dyna particularly enjoys rest and relaxing, it takes some encouragement to get her outside if the weather is not "perfect" in her mind. We have had her for almost 3 years now and we think she may be about 8 years old.
