To keep your dog’s teeth clean, get a vet to see your dog regularly. Listen to what the doc has to say and follow his advice as well.

Next, brush your dog’s teeth after every meal. Remember to provide a balanced diet that keeps teeth and gums healthy.

Polish your dog’s teeth with mouthwash on a cloth at least once a day. After that, get your dog chew toys to keep their teeth strong. The safest dog chews are the way to go. Get a few so that your dog can pick favourites.

Finally, play fetch with your dog with an apple. It’s really good for the dog’s teeth. The apple won’t harm your dog, either. If you don’t have apples use another fruit or vegetable that is small and thick to bite into.

  1. Dog’s teeth need to be kept healthy hence needs constant brushing

  2. Amazing and insightful article, addressing a major issue concerning the health of our furry buddies.
    I’ll like to stress that the anatomical structure of our dogs are different to ours. In plain terms, when a dog starts having dental complications, it could easily transcend to other parts of his body. While this also happens to humans, the process is a lot quicker in dogs.
    Hence the need to promptly address health issues, or better still, initiate preventive actions.

    I’ll also (from experience) like to add how some furry buddies are just against the idea of using a toothbrush. On that account, I suggest oral liquid formulas which can also do an effective job.

    Once again, great job on this article and site at large.

    I look forward to reading and commenting on more relevant issues concerning our canine pals.

    • Thank you so much for your comments. I totally agree some dogs have no interest in a toothbrush! I have used the liquid and my dog loved it.

      Looking forward to hearing from you again.

      • Great reading your article and (more of a pleasure) getting a feedback from you Trina. I admit how much common interest we share as touching our love for our pet.
        I look forward to reading more articles from you.

        Please have a great day ahead!

        • Thank you so much! The more we know about our furry friends the better!

  3. So TRINA, hope you don’t mind telling me your breed of dog and what influenced that choice?

    • Beagle! Living in the city I wanted a dog, but not a little pocket dog. The beagle needs long walks instead of big runs, so she works perfectly for city living.
