It is as vital to brush your dog’s teeth as it is to brush your own. Plaque, tartar, tooth decay and gingivitis can lead to periodontal disease in dogs. This can cause bacterial infection in your dog’s mouth and jaw, which can also spread to their bloodstream and wreak havoc on their major organs! This means that brushing your dog’s teeth, treating them with dental chews, and using other oral hygiene products in their daily routine is not just an aesthetic treatment – it’s about their health and wellbeing!

Is it too late to start brushing my dog’s teeth?

It’s never too late. The best time to start brushing your dog’s teeth is when they are a puppy. The second-best time is right now. It may take some sweet-talking and some dental doggy treats, but you should get into the routine of brushing your dog’s teeth at least once a day. It’s impawtant to only use a toothbrush and toothpaste designed for dogs, but also check that the size and shape of the toothbrush matches your dog’s needs.

How can I clean my dog’s teeth without brushing?

If your dog absolutely won’t tolerate having their teeth brushed, it’s time to change tack. Trick them into cleaning their teeth with specially designed dental chews or chew toys, which scrub at their teeth while they chew and play. You can also add fresh breath additive to their water bowl or drinking fountain, or squeeze some oral care gel in their mouth. Also choose from Pet Hero’s range of oral rinses, foams and sprays to keep dental bacteria at bay.

Doggy dental hygiene best practice

Along with a nutritious, high quality dog diet and daily brushing, it’s also very good for your dog’s health to have an annual dental check-up and cleaning at the vet’s.
