- Brush your dog’s teeth at least once a week.
- Check your pet’s mouth and gums for abnormalities once a month. Look for swollen gums, brownish tartar on teeth, worse than usual bad breath, excessive drooling, and any loose teeth.
- Invest in chew toys which help remove tartar from their teeth.
- Look for food and treats formulated for dental care and approved by the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC)
- Use human toothpaste. Flouride is very dangerous for pets and their may be other harmful ingredients not meant for our furry friends.
- Ignore the signs of gum disease. Make a trip to a Veterinary Dental Care Professional at least once a year.
- Give up – ease your dog slowly into teeth brushing. He or she may not be used to this new ritual, but with patience, time and treats they will get there!
