Doggie Dental Tips Did you know that brushing your dog's teeth and providing plenty of chew toys can go a long way toward keeping his or her mouth healthy? Many pets show signs of gum disease by the time they're four years old because they aren't provided with proper mouth care. Give your dog regular check-ups and and your pup will have healthy teeth for years to come! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Brush Daily Tooth brushing should be performed daily. We recommend using a traditional flat profile toothbrush and veterinary or pup specific toothpaste. Human tooth paste contains fluoride and foaming agents that may be toxic or upsetting to your pet's gastrointestinal tract if ingested.

Dry Dog Food Helps Dental Health! If Fido fights the tooth brushing ,there are still choices you can make to help improve your dog's oral health. Crunchy kibble is better for your dog's teeth than soft food, as soft food is more likely to stick to the teeth and cause decay. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Dental Treats & Chew Toys There are many synthetic bones and chew toys that are specially designed to strengthen your dog's gums and teeth. Just make sure you're providing safe objects that your dog to chew on. Hard objects like hard plastic bones, sterilized real bones, ice cubes, cow hooves, antlers, and bully sticks can cause breaks and hurt your pup instead of helping them!
