Dog Dental Products
Keep Your Dog Healthier And More Kissable!

smiling Maltese puppy If you need a good reason to start using dog dental products, try this: experts say that taking care of a dog's teeth will add five years to his life!

Regular use of dental products especially designed for cleaning and brushing dog teeth, will not only give your dog a great smile, he will also be healthier as a result! Unfortunately, brushing dog teeth isn't always thought of as a priority by pet owners and is often an overlooked part of dog grooming.

While there are lots of great dog dental products to help keep plaque at bay, the dog tooth brush is still the number one tool for the job, but I've never seen a dog use one without his owner's help!

Sadly, serious health consequences, as well as painful toothaches for your dog, can result from overlooking this area of dog hygiene. Also, a lot of dogs seem to have high pain thresholds so you may never know if he/she is suffering in silence.

Like many dog lovers, you may have wondered about dog dental products and if you should be brushing your dog's teeth. The answer is a resounding yes, because just like humans, plaque accumulates on your pet's teeth and needs to be removed.

Dental hygiene is so enormously tied to your dog's health and well-being, that it rates as a "must do" priority.

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:

  • 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. Start out with some affectionate petting around his head and when he becomes relaxed all laid back, casually slip your finger in under his lip.

For a little extra encouragement, 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. For what it's worth, my dogs go wild over this toothpaste and actually come running to get a brush!!

Anyway, after a few days, move on to some short sessions with a doggie finger brush. When your dog is comfortable accepting this, you can try 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:

unique finger toothbrushes for dogs
Unique Finger Toothbrush For Dogs

We like the design of this finger toothbrush because it's easier to hold onto while cleaning your dog's teeth.

This type of brush is also ideal when first starting out with Rover's dental care. It's less invasive than a regular brush and because it's attached to your finger (which sometimes doles out treats!) he'll be more accepting of it. Try it and you'll see. Later you can try the double sided brush. We use both.

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.

Zuke's Z-Bones Dental Chews

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, keep an eye on him/her, at least until you are confident that your pet chews it in a safe manner.
