HEALTHY DOGS START WITH HEALTHY TEETH 

Regular dental care is a very important part of your dog’s overall health. Regularly brushing dogs teeth and providing them with a healthy diet can keep the mouth healthy. Many of the periodontal diseases come out around 2-3 years old and most of them because dogs aren’t provided with proper oral care.

PREVENTIVE MEASURES AT HOME

Give your dog regular home checks and by following some of the tips below you’ll have a dazzling smile. ​​

  • Brush your dog’s teeth (3 times a week)

  • Rinsing with antibacterial products

  • Dogs should have their teeth cleaned at least every 6 months

  • Chew toys and bones can help scrape food debris off teeth

  • Foods that reduce plaque: apples (unpeeling), carrots and celery

  • Periodically checking your dog's breath

HOW DO I BRUSH MY DOG'S TEETH?

Get a toothbrush (toothpaste is not mandatory) made especially for canines. Please bear in mind that human toothpaste can irritate a dog’s stomach. Special rinsing for dogs is also available.

 

  • First, get your dog used to the idea of having the teeth brushed. Massage the lips with your finger in a circular motion once or twice a day for a few days. Then move on to teeth and gums.

  • When the dog seems comfortable being touched this way, put a little bit of dog toothpaste (optional) on the lips to get used to the taste.

  • Next, introduce a toothbrush. Toothbrushes that you can wear over your finger allow you to give a nice massage on your dog’s gums.

BRUSHING TECHNIQUE

Place the brush finger and clean the teeth from top to bottom or in small circular motions. Work on one area of your dog’s mouth at a time, lifting the lips as necessary. Once you get the technique down, go for a brushing three times a week. You can also check the links for demo videos, toothbrush, and rinsing.
