Doggy Dental Tips | February is Dental Month

Friday, February 20, 2015

Yep, it's dental month right now so what better way to celebrate than to give you guys a few tips for keeping your dog's teeth clean! 

Tip 1 | Don't Avoid Dental Cleanings
For my dogs, they are prone to dental issues and heart issues because of their breed and heart and dental stuff go hand in hand so I don't mess around.  If the vet suggests it's time for a dental cleaning, I go for it.   It may be pricey but it's worth it in the long run. 

Tip 2 | Weekly Brushing

I brush my dogs' teeth 2 times a week with a finger brush.   Even if I just shove the brush in and get the toothpaste in their mouth, it's better than nothing.   It also helps cut back on how many dental cleanings they will need in their lifetime! 

Tip 3 | Use Dental Chews
As a treat, I give my chihuahuas stuff to chew on, but I also want their treats to double as a dental health product.   I use Blue Buffalo Dental Bones.  They are all natural, made in the USA, contain Taurine, Vitamin A, C, and E, and contain no wheat.  

Do you take care of your pet's teeth? Are you going to start?
