Caring for your Dog’s Teeth
Did you know that taking care of your dog’s teeth on a routine basis is part of providing for your dog’s overall health and wellness? Some illnesses can be prevented simply by keeping the teeth clean and preventing bacteria from entering the mouth. You can help your dog keep his mouth and teeth clean in several different ways. First, you can feed your dog a crunchy dog food or crunchy snacks to help naturally breakdown food, plaque and tartar buildup on the teeth. Dental treats such as Greenie dental chews are also a great way to help naturally clean the teeth. You can also brush your dog’s teeth with a vet approved toothbrush and toothpaste or use a cotton swab to wipe down the teeth. Teeth and gum wipes for dogs are also available in local pet stores. Routine professional cleanings from your Louisville, CO vet are also beneficial.
