Dental disease (animal periodontal disease, in particular) is the most common and prevalent disease in our canine companions, yet it is one of the most preventable. We can reduce or even prevent dental disease by:

  • Feeding a crunchy diet
  • Supplying veterinary dental treats, diets, and chew toys
  • Brushing your pet’s teeth daily

The following are steps to guide you on how to brush your dog’s teeth:

  • Pick a convenient time of day that will become a part of your pet’s daily routine.
  • Start slowly:
    • Day 1: Offer a taste of the toothpaste (you must use veterinary toothpaste, as human toothpaste can be harmful to your pet).
    • Day 2: Offer a taste of toothpaste, and then run your finger along the top gum line.
    • Day 3: Repeat, only with a toothbrush instead of your finger. Angle the toothbrush slightly upright so the bristles get under the gum line.
    • Continue this slow introduction to the bottom teeth.
    • Offer a lot of praise and even a treat after each quick session.
  • Eventually, brush all of your pet’s teeth quickly and efficiently (in less than 30 seconds). Work your way from the back to the front, making small circles along the gum line.
  • If your pet does not have the patience to allow you to brush the entire mouth, focus on the upper back teeth where periodontal disease is known to be the worst.
  • Don’t forget to give a lot of praise! This can help make brushing your pet’s teeth exciting and fun for your furry friend, as well as a lot easier for you.
