Dental Care tips
Along with Dental Care nutrition, a few hints and tips to help keep your dog’s teeth and gums healthy.
It’s important to take your dog for routine vet visits. Your dog may need a teeth cleaning. During the visit, the veterinarian performs an oral exam and will recommend a dental cleaning when appropriate.
It’s a good idea to brush your dog’s teeth daily yourself, as well as taking him to the vet. Make sure you use toothpaste for dogs and a suitably sized soft toothbrush. And, ideally, start doing this when he is a puppy to help him get used to it.
When you’re cleaning your dog’s teeth or playing with him, you may notice that some areas of his gums are redder than others. This means you’ve caught gum disease in action, and it’s your cue to visit the vet for an extra check.
