I know you’ve heard it from your vet already, but brushing your dog’s teeth is unbelievably important.
Dental hygiene is essential for all humans and it’s just as important for dogs. Like humans, tartar can be extremely damaging and result in gum disease and other health problems in pups.
By brushing your pup’s teeth, you’re extending a happy life and keeping your dog in tip-top health.
But don’t just take my word for it. Dr. Andrea Tu of the The American Kennel Club explains below just how important it is to brush teeth, plus: brushing tips and techniques for better oral hygiene care.
“But my dog doesn’t like her toothpaste!”
No excuses! If you’re worried about your pup not liking the taste, there are many different flavors for doggie toothpaste.
After the brushing, give your pup lots of praise and healthy treats to create pawsitive associations!
