Should I brush my dog’s teeth?
Nice and simple – the answer is YES!
Just as we care for our teeth, we should be caring for our dear
doggo’s! If this is not done, dogs suffer the same consequences as we do: Gingivitis, bad breath, plaque and tartar build up.
Without proper care, your dog’s mouth can suffer dire consequences, the most extreme form being Periodontal Disease. The effects of this
disease start in the form of gingivitis, caused by a build up of plaque and tartar, and can eventually reach a stage where both gum and bone tissue is destroyed.
Happily, starting the healthy habit of oral hygiene does not take as much effort as you may imagine…
Here are some tips to explore in order to get your doggo’s breath fresh, and overall ensure they have a healthy mouth to give lots of kisses!
As with anything, prevention is better than cure! Introducing these couple of things into your dog’s lifestyle can really impact their health positively.
Simply put, a healthy diet, regular exercise, and regular vet visits will ensure nothing gets too out of control and keep your doggo happy and healthy!
