I have listed a video showing you a good technique for brushing your dog’s teeth. It’s for 4:30 seconds. There are many opinions from veterinarians on how often you should brush your pet’s teeth. Some say every day, 2-3 days, and so on. My only advice is that I take the middle road. I do my dog’s teeth three times a week. Doing them just once a week or twice a month is really not good tooth care for your pet.
And let me say this:
The Importance of Dental Hygiene for Dogs
Some people are simply unaware that dogs require oral hygiene measures to protect their teeth and remain healthy, but others deliberately abstain from the practice. They just don’t think about it, period. Well, have you ever broken a tooth or had a cavity? Painful isn’t it. Oh, and by the way, why “do you brush your teeth?
I’m not trying to be sarcastic here, but dogs do need their teeth brushed.
Our four-footed best friends can and do suffer from many of the same ailments humans fall victim to, including plaque buildup, gum disease, and – perhaps most obviously, given their predilection for licking their owner’s faces – halitosis, or bad breath. And, let’s not forget that vet bills cost big dollars sometimes.
Reduction of bacteria in your dog’s mouth can be accomplished not only through brushing but also with diet—and the use of chew toys. That’s where dental dog chews come in.
Just some thought guys.
