Dental Care for Your Dog


There are several ways you can care for your dog's teeth every day.

A complete home dental care program for your dog often will include brushing as well as a special pet food that helps care for your pet's teeth while he or she eats. 

Even if you aren't able to brush your dog's teeth every day, by incorporating a special pet food into his daily routine, you can provide the dental care needed to keep him healthy. Be sure to talk with your veterinarian about the options that exist and which are right for your dog.

Brushing Your Dog's Teeth

STEP 1: Introduce a brushing program gradually. Avoid over-restraining him and keep brushing sessions short and positive. A small dog can be held in your lap. Praise and reassure your pet throughout the process.

STEP 2: At first, dip a finger into beef bouillon. Rub the soaked finger gently over your dog's mouth and teeth. Make the initial sessions short and positive.

STEP 3: Gradually, introduce gauze over the finger and gently scrub the teeth in a circular motion.

STEP 4: Finally, you can introduce a soft toothbrush designed for pets. Use a sensitive or ultra-soft brush designed for people or a brush designed for pets. Special pet toothbrushes are available from your veterinarian or specialty pet store. Don't use toothpaste designed for people because it could upset your dog's stomach.
