Let’s talk about how to brush your dog’s teeth.
The first thing to know about brushing dogs teeth is make sure that they will allow you
to do so. Some dogs don’t. If they’re wanting to bite, or growling at you, and don’t want
you to stick your finger in their mouth, and just avoid it, but dogs who appreciate it
or will let you do it, it’s a great thing ’cause dental health is of utmost important,
importance, especially as they get older. The first thing you do basically, is get a
tooth brush kit for your dog. They make different flavored toothpaste like poultry and beef
flavor toothpaste. So it’s flavor, they don’t you know, mind it so bad. They also make tooth
brushes or finger brushes which work really well, and so you put a little water, a little
bit of that tooth paste on that finger brush and the way you go about brushing teeth is
gently open that mouth and you’re going to gently, I know, it it isn’t great, is it?
So you’re going to gently start to rub on those teeth, you know, work on the canines
first, then on the incisors, and then move your way back to the molars, the upper and
lower. And just gently do it. You don’t want to see any blood. If you are, you’re doing
to hard, or if they’re whining or something like that. So again, just gentle pressure,
and most dogs will respond to it and it’s great for their, their teeth and their gums.
