Brushing Your Pet’s Teeth (Part 2)

By February 11, 2015Pet Talk

Now we will go through how to perform at an home dental cleaning:

  • Use a pet toothbrush or a piece of gauze wrapped around your finger
  • Wipe all teeth, front to back, with strokes from the gum line to the tip of the tooth
  • Only use a toothpaste that is pet friendly, as our toothpaste contains fluoride concentrations that may make your pet sick
  • When finished, give your pet a treat as a reward
  • Do this once or twice a day to familiarize your pet with having his gums and teeth rubbed
  • Start at a very young age and then brush several times weekly

Please call us if you have any questions or concerns!
