Do I Need to Clean My Dog’s Teeth?
Dog teeth need to be cared for just like human teeth. Many people tend to overlook the oral aspect of dog hygiene but it’s essential to canine health. However, improper care of your Dances with Wolves Ranch dog’s teeth can result in more than just stinky breath. Bad oral hygiene can result in medical issues such as infection, gingivitis, painful abscesses, and even tooth loss.
There are a few ways you can make sure your pet is getting proper dental care. The most obvious and effective way is to simply brush your dog’s teeth. This will prevent plaque buildup and most accurately maintain your Dances with Wolves Ranch dog’s healthy teeth. Ideally, you would brush your pet’s teeth every day. However, even brushing just once a week can help to improve your dog’s dental health. Look for soft bristle toothbrushes or a finger brush and only use specific dog toothpaste. You should never use human toothpaste to brush your dog’s teeth. Many pet stores sell canine toothpaste with flavors such as chicken or beef. Some dogs even end up enjoying teeth brushing.
Other Options for Teeth Care
For those that can’t or don’t want to brush their dog’s teeth, then there are other options. Dog tooth wipes are an easier alternative. They are a more accessible way to remove plaque from your dog’s teeth, but they aren’t as thorough and effective as cleaning with a toothbrush.
The third option is buying your dog dental treats or chew toys. Both of these eliminate the need for you to brush or wipe your dog’s teeth. A dog can naturally clean his teeth by chewing dental treats, and some chew toys are made specifically with dental hygiene in mind. When buying a dental treat or dog chew it’s important to do your research to make sure no materials or ingredients will harm your dog as they chew.
As always, the best way to ensure your Dances with Wolves Ranch dog’s health and safety is to talk to a vet. Veterinarians offer professional dental cleaning, which is the safest and most effective way to maintain your dog’s oral health. Vets can also recommend products and methods for at-home pet dental care.
