Keep those dogteeth clean and healthy! A dog with a healthy mouth will lead a healthier and happier life. Here are the simplest and most effective ways to keep your dog's mouth healthy!
Once a week, lift your dog’s lips and examine their teeth and gums. The gums should be pink, not white or red, and should show no signs of swelling. The teeth should be clean, without any brownish tartar.
BRUSH BRUSH BRUSH
Get your paws around this dog toothbrush designed to easily clean your dogs teeth – apply a pet toothpaste (don’t use human toothpaste as it will make them sick) and gently polish those doggie teeth. Your pooch might not go for the tooth brushing at first; a good time to try is when they are tired from a run at the dog park. Start slowly and stop if they gets agitated, then simply increase the time every day as they get used to it.
CHEW ON THIS
In between brushings, keep those choppers healthy by getting your mouth around dental bones and treats available from your nearest DOGUE Store. Try out a few until you find Fido’s favourite. If your dog will eat veggies feed them some raw or lightly steamed carrots or even celery to help fight tartar!
