Do you brush your dog's teeth?
Do you have your vet brush your dog's teeth or is this something you can do yourself? How often does it need to be done? When I was growing up we didn't brush dog's teeth and I remember my poor baby had plague on her teeth but we didn't think nothing of it back in those days. If I get another dog I want to make sure their teeth are taken care of too.
I don't brush my dogs' teeth, but it is a good thing to do if your dog will accept it. Now, though, there are enzymatic sprays that work well and don't require brushing. If you brush, you need to get special canine toothpaste and toothbrush or rubber finger toothbrush. I was told to brush once a day.
It really helps their oral health if you can brush.
Yes, I do brush my dog's teeth and they love it! When I lay down on the floor with the tooth brush and paste in my hand, they come over and lay on my lap to get that tasty chicken toothpaste in their mouths. I do it about twice a week. I also give my dogs bones and toys meant to help their teeth.
Yep, 3 times a week. One of them is more accepting of it. The other one loves the toothpaste, but keeps trying to eat the toothbrush. It does help keep their teeth clean and I haven't had to bring in my current two for cleanings at the vet yet, although toothbrush eater does need to have it done for a couple of teeth later this year.
I've also experienced the situation with other dogs where there was extreme plaque which can indicate more serious health issues.
They love the toothpaste! The paste does feature an enzyme action. So even if you can't get a good brushing, the paste (which is not rinsed out like for humans) can provide some benefits.
