We know that brushing a dog’s teeth every day is not an easy task, but you should absolutely do it every once in a while (at least twice a week). Bad breath is the first sign of periodontal disease, a health problem that can be very dangerous if left unchecked and potentially lead to tooth loss, kidney failure, and heart disease.
Buy a good pet toothbrush (or a finger brush if you own a small dog) and use a tiny bit of dog toothpaste to brush your pet’s teeth in a circular motion. After some time, you will master this technique and your dog will get used to it.
If you don’t have the time to do it every single day, there are some alternative products such as dental chews that can help you keep your dog’s teeth healthy.
Oh, and don’t forget the occasional veterinary dental cleaning!
