Dog Dental Products
Dog Dental Products - When To Start?The ideal time to start getting your dog used to brushing is when he is very young. Regular use of dog dental products will help prevent the build up of plaque and bacteria that leads to gum disease.
It has been reported that dental disease is near the top of the list of health problems diagnosed by veterinarians. Not only that, but many other serious canine disorders are started by oral infections traveling through the blood supply to other parts of the body. So don't delay.
Keeping your dog's teeth in good shape can really help your best friend lead a healthier and longer life. Here are some basics of a preventative dental plan and using dog dental products:
Triple Pet All Natural Toothpaste
Petrodex Enzymatic Toothpaste Poultry Flavor
- Start out with a complete dog dental exam to check for any unseen problems.
- Brush your dog's teeth at least three times a week, daily if possible.
- Be alert to changes in condition – bleeding gums, discoloration, chronic bad dog breath or less interest in eating. If any, see Vet right away.
- Keep your pet on a healthy, natural diet. (See premium dog food page for advice).
- Encourage chewing of chew toys and bones specifically designed for dog dental care - under supervision of course.
- Schedule regular pet health and dental check-ups.
How to use Dog Dental Products:Before introducing your pet to a dog tooth brush, gradually get him used to short sessions of ever-so-gently massaging his gums and teeth with your finger. First give your dog some affectionate petting around his head and when he starts to get all laid back, casually slip your finger in under his lip. Initially you can put some gravy on your finger to get his interest.
When he is comfortable with this routine, you can do the same thing with dog toothpaste – don’t worry, this special toothpaste is non-foaming, edible, and no rinsing is necessary. After a few days, move on to some short sessions with a doggie finger brush. When your dog is comfortable accepting this, you can trray a session with a regular dog tooth brush.
Whatever you do, don't give up - just keep practicing and it will work out.
Note Make sure that throughout these steps, you give lots of praise and affection and follow up with a dental treat so that Rover gets to view this as a positive experience.
Dog Dental Products For Cleaning And Brushing Dog Teeth:
Finger Toothbrush For Dogs
This is the finger toothbrush I talked about earlier. It will probably be easier for Rover to accept this method of brushing when you first get him started.
Triple Pet EZDOG Pet Dental Kit These kits are available for large or small dogs. Each kit has both the doggie toothpaste and the toothbrush that you will eventually want to use after your dog has accepted the finger brush above. The toothbush is a clever design that cleans both sides of the teeth at the same time.
Zukes Z-Ridge Dental Chew Bone
Now your dog can benefit from a healthy dental bone with natural breath freshening ingredients and specially designed ridges that help reduce plaque while he chews. The bone also delivers a polishing action to the teeth.
Approved by the Veterinary Oral Health Council to assist with removal of both plaque and tartar. Greenies also reduce gingivitis and freshen your dog's breath. They are 100% edible, with a new shape that makes breaking and chewing easy and enjoyable for your dog.
NOTE OF CAUTION: As with any product you give your dog to chew, be sure to supervise this activity, at least until you are confident that your pet chews it in a safe manner.
