How To Take Care Of Your Dog’s Teeth

The need for professional dental examines for your dog is dependent on how fast calculus forms on the dog’s teeth. Here are several tips that can help you avoid the need for professional dental care.

1. Brush the dog’s teeth and gums three or more times per week with a toothpaste that is designed especially for dogs.

2. Avoid giving your dog objects that hard too hard for the dog to chew on. This will help prevent the dog’s teeth from cracking.

3. Feed your dog a dry kibble diet. The dry food helps to clean the dog’s teeth. If you prefer to give your dog wet food, giving your dog milk bones to help clean the dog’s teeth. Bones also are helpful in cleaning the dog’s teeth.

4. Annual veterinary check-ups including a cleaning help to prevent dental diseases and problems from occurring.

5. Grocery stores and pet stores have tons of products, such as water additives and treats, that are designed to improve your dog’s dental care.

Side Note – Most dogs should receive professional dental care by three years of age. When dental care is started when the dog is still young and had healthy gums and teeth, the dog is less likely to develop dental diseases and other problems in the future.
