Do's and Don'ts For Dog Dental Health

 I came across a picture from that explained what you should and shouldn't do for your dogs dental care, and I thought I would share it with you!


  • Brush your dogs teeth at least once a week.
  • Check your pets mouth and gums for abnormalities once a month. This includes looking for swollen gums, brownish tartar on teeth, bad breath and loose teeth.
  • Invest in a chew toy. This will help remove tartar build up.
  • Look for foods and treats formulated for dental care and approved by Veterinary Oral Heath Council (VOHV).
  • Use human toothpaste. Fluoride is extremely dangerous for pets. 
  • Ignoring signs of gum disease. Visit your vet at least once a year.
  • Give up - slowly introduce your dog to teeth brushing. It will be new and they may resist but don't give up, they will eventually become used to it!
