How to Brush Your Pet’s Teeth

We advocate brushing of the teeth once a day to prevent or minimize the need for routine dental care. Therefore, we are often asked the best way to go about brushing the teeth. First of all, getting Fido to agree to the inital tooth brushings may require a bit of patience. However, typically once he finds out that the pet toothpaste being used is chicken flavored he will come around.  Secondly, make sure that the toothbrush used is nice and soft. Pet gums are not as used to the abrasiveness of a toothbrush as human gums and should be dealth with gently. All this said, toothbrushing is not tolerated by all dogs and cats, but it is worth one’s effort to try.
