Arrow Brushing your dog's teeth

Interestingly enough - there's always a debate on whether or not to brush your dog's teeth. Some say bones or meaty dog treats will help prevent build up of bacteria and plaque. However, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), it's recommended to brush your dog's teeth daily! If you're up to it - it certainly can't hurt. Get a toothbrush (sponge or pad) / paste (designed for dogs) from your pet store. Introduce it slowly and perhaps every few days initially - let you dog get used to it and try to make it a fun event. Good luck - you are doing your dog GOOD!

Default Brushing your dog's teeth

You'll definitely want to introduce to 'brushing teeth' to your dog slowly! Use a sponge or pad designed for cleaning the teeth and dip it in something your dog likes to eat (to get him used to this new thing). Just gently massage the gums and teeth - just a bit at a time until your dog is comfortable with it. You are surely doing your dog a great favor : )

Talking Brushing your dog's teeth

You can try a "finger toothbrush" (made for both dogs & cats) or dental wipes also made for pets. Others include disposable finger toothbrush gloves which are less bulky in a dog's mouth than the finger toothbrush. These items can be found at any pet store. You can also use a gauze pad or a cotton swab.

I recommend you to use baby toothpaste. Mint strong toothpaste can injure the dog’s mouth and the dog might not like it. Using edible baby tooth paste is a great idea.
