February is Pet Dental Health Month — a good time to remember that dogs have oral care needs too. While dental health may not be at the top of your pet-care priorities, it is important to your dog’s health. Taking care of his choppers not only curbs dog breath and helps prevent periodontal disease (the most commonly diagnosed disease among dogs aged 3+), it can actually help him live a healthier life.
The best way to keep your dog’s teeth clean is to brush them regularly. Look for a finger brush, which is a little sleeve that fits over your finger. It’s easy to use and its textured design provides effective scrubbing. You can also use a toothbrush that’s specifically designed for dogs. And be sure to use only dog toothpaste, which is available at pet stores. Human toothpaste foams too easily and may be harmful if swallowed by your dog. For the ultimate in oral care, you can try using oral rinses that are made for pets.
