摘要: 

現今寵物狗與人之間的關係日趨緊密,親暱的動作也更加頻繁,如何使人犬互動之餘能夠注重衛生清潔。寵物狗首要注重口腔清潔、皮膚和體毛的清潔,以及各項疾病的預防。然而,寵物美容至今已非常普遍,寵物醫療也對於疾病的診斷更為精密,所以在此先針對寵物狗口腔潔牙的重要性做探討。 本研究始自文獻探討口腔牙齒的構造及功能、口腔疾病、狗的心理層面、狗的行為反應以及市售潔牙產品;進而透過問卷調查、分析及歸納受測者使用現有產品替寵物狗清潔牙齒的困難所在,並在訪談專業醫師之後,依其建議之論點考量、市售寵物狗口腔清潔及習見潔牙具之設計,發現相對立之觀念差異。 全文探討寵物狗口腔清潔二個不同層次的潔牙模式:1.握柄牙刷2.指套牙刷,惟此種差異屬於對狗之心理之設想而產生操作上之不同,在潔牙之「需求本質」上並無對立之意涵。進而設計創作較佳之寵物狗泛用潔牙具,完成二種不同式樣之潔牙工具。
