Just like caring for your teeth is important, it’s also important to take care of your dog’s teeth. Luckily, preserving dog dental health is a relatively simple, straightforward process. Here are our top dog dental health tips that can help you keep your dog’s teeth in good condition.
- Give your dog dental treats—We recommend giving your dog a chewable dental treat on a daily basis. The purpose of these chews is to reduce the amount of plaque and tartar on your dog’s teeth while creating a protective barrier that makes it harder for tartar to form.
- Brush your dog’s teeth—Yes, you need to brush your dog’s teeth regularly just like you need to brush your own. You can purchase special dog toothbrushes and toothpaste at most larger stores and pet stores. And many dogs even like having their teeth brushed because the toothpaste made for dogs usually comes in chicken, beef, and peanut butter flavors.
- Bring your dog in for regular cleanings—One of the best ways to care for dog dental health is to bring them to see us at APL Teeth Cleaning & Treats for regular cosmetic cleaning appointments. We use hand instruments that gently scale the teeth and remove plaque and tartar buildup. This not only keeps your dog’s teeth healthier but also helps with bad breath.
