Your dog may not be able to tell you when something is wrong, but sadly 4 out of 5 of dogs over the age of 3 years have gum disease. This is caused by plaque and tartar build-up around the gum line, which can be reduced by an effective dental care routine.
How to brush your dog’s teeth.
Brushing your dog’s teeth regularly is a great way to keep his gums and teeth healthier and fight gum disease.
Introducing tooth brushing gradually will mean his will learn to enjoy the experience.
We’ve worked alongside The British Veterinary Dental Association to create this simple step-by-step guide to ensure brushing your dog’s teeth is both straightforward and successful.
A pet toothbrush with medium bristles
Dog toothpaste (human toothpaste isn’t good for dogs because it contains fluoride which is toxic to dogs)
A quiet area with little or no distractions
Clean hands and short nails for your dog’s safety
Plenty of patience
