HOW TO BRUSH YOUR DOG'S TEETH
Dogs can’t brush their own teeth. So, they trust us to do it for them.
From picking out a canine toothbrush, to selecting oral care products for your pet like Oraup’s Lickies
, brushing your dog’s teeth requires planning.
Fido or Gertie may not go for tooth brushing, but with a little bit of planning and a lot of patience, it can work out to be a positive experience for both of you.
Start slowly, quit if the dog gets frustrated, even if you don’t get finished. You can start by introducing your dog to dental care by using your finger or a washcloth and by rewarding them generously after each session. Create a positive association for your dog between dental care and yummy rewards for best results.
In deciding what toothpaste you want to use for your dog, remember do not use regular human toothpaste. Fluoride is poisonous to dogs.
