Some pet experts claim you should brush your pet’s teeth daily. This may seem unnecessary, however it's important to develop a regular regime of maintaining your pet’s mouth health to avoid dental problems.
Make sure your pet is as relaxed as possible when you brush their teeth. You may even consider an annual vet appointment where your pet has a full check-up and treatment.
Here are some tips from Australia Pet Doors for brushing your pet’s teeth.
Regular brushing can lessen the need for pet dental services. Only your vet knows how to remove plaque from an animal's teeth, but you can do your part. Introducing your pet to dental care should be done gradually.
Apply a tasty treat to your finger and gently rub your pet's teeth and gums. Once they’re comfortable, start using gauze and rub in a circular motion. When they can handle this, start using a toothbrush.
