Dog Dental Solutions
Your pet is born with a good set of canines, it’s your job to ensure that they stay that way. The best way to keep those pearly whites sparkling is to invest in a good collection of oral care products. Dog brushes, toothpastes and even care water additives are good dog dental solutions to keep handy.
Keeping those Pearly Whites Healthy
It’s something you do at least once every day for yourself and is as important for your pooch. Dogs are prone to dental problems too, though not as often as humans are. Tooth decay can lead to deadly infections that can affect the liver, heart, and kidney. Most pet parents don’t know that dogs require daily dental care for pets and often neglect this aspect of pet parenting. Besides brushing their teeth every day, it is also important to get their teeth checked professionally every six to twelve months. This way you can make sure that your pet’s oral care routine is on point.
Brushing Your Dog’s Teeth
Yes, there actually is toothpaste for pets and it is not the same as human dog toothpaste. Most human toothpaste contains fluoride and Xylitol which is highly poisonous for dogs. It’s more than likely your dog is not going to like you poking about in their mouth and cleaning their teeth so it’s important to start this process slowly and at an early age. Don’t try to force the entire process on your dog on the first day, keep at it slowly and reward them with treats so that it comes to become a more pleasant process for them. You can invest in a dog toothbrush which is slightly more angled to get at the gums and teeth. There are also double-sided dog brushes that fit on the ends of your fingers, which may make it easier for the both of you.
There are some extremely effective dental sprays for pets and even an oral solution for pets that aid in removing plaque and tartar. You can even liquid additives that can just be added to their drinking water! Dental treats for dogs include dental chew toys for dogs and are great options because your pet will love these! Younger dogs can chomp away on teething toys for dogs as these not only help to soothe their itchy gums but also help to keep their teeth clean.

Got a Question? Raise a Paw!
soon should I start brushing my pet’s teeth?
While your pet does not strictly need his or her teeth brushed when they are young, it is a good idea to begin early (about 4 months) so your pet gets used to the process. They are much more open to learning new procedures during this time. Adults are more likely to protest having a toothbrush in their mouths.
If I use a combination of the oral hygiene products, can I skip brushing my pet’s teeth?
No, there is no aid that is effective enough to completely replace brushing your pet’s teeth. These aids remain just that, aids. If you are having a difficult time brushing your pet’s teeth, speak to your pet’s groomer and have it done on a regular basis at the pet spa. Alternatively, you can consult a trainer and learn how to get your pet used to the process.
What happens if I ignore my pet’s oral hygiene?
Ignoring your pet’s oral hygiene not only leads to gum disease and tooth decay but will eventually lead to much worse illnesses including heart disease. Allowing tooth decay may also make it more difficult for your pet to eat (many pets with toothaches refuse to eat) leading to weakness and weight loss.Show Less
