Taking Care of Your Pet’s Teeth
To ensure your pet’s oral health, it is crucial to brush their teeth on a regular basis. Here’s how to do this, simply and painlessly (animal permitting).
Buy a High-quality animal Toothpaste and Toothbrush
One of the most important things that pet owners overlook when it comes to their pet’s oral hygiene is that they don’t buy a toothbrush made for their pets and use an adult toothbrush on them instead, which usually don’t work, We recommend that you get toothbrushes made specifically for your pet because:
- They can easily access the crevices of your pet’s mouth
- The bristles are made to clean the pet’s mouth
HINT If you’re in a pinch, children’s toothbrushes will get the job done. You should NEVER use toothpaste meant for humans for your furry friend as they contain fluoride and other ingredients, which are toxic to pets. There are various kinds of pet toothpaste available on the market which come in different flavors that make brushing your pet’s teeth an easier task.
Start Brushing When Your Pet Is Young!
We recommend that you start brushing your pet’s teeth when they’re young – in puppyhood or kittenhood – so that your pet doesn’t freak out while you’re brushing their teeth. This can also turn into a bonding experience, once your pet gets used to it.
Start by First Introducing Your Pet to the Toothpaste and Toothbrush
You can’t just put something in your pet’s mouth and expect them to go with it! We recommend that you start by getting your pet comfortable with having the toothbrush and toothpaste in their mouth. This makes brushing feel a little less overwhelming. Here are some steps you can follow:
- Let your pet taste a small amount of the toothpaste on your finger.
- As your pet smells and eventually licks the paste, start brushing your pet’s teeth with your fingers as it makes the transition easier
- Show your pet the toothbrush with the toothpaste on it and allow it to lick the toothpaste
Keep in mind (as with all training) that you should reinforce your pet with praises as it makes the transition to brushing a little easier.
Brush a Few Teeth at a Time
Take things slowly by brushing only a few of your dog’s teeth with the toothbrush and gradually work your way up to the whole mouth over the span of a few days or longer if necessary. As with ALL training, patience is key.
Make it a Habit
The goal of brushing your pet’s teeth is to make the process easy while protecting your pet from painful dental diseases. You should ideally brush your pet’s teeth once a day or once every other day However, you can aim for brushing your furry friend’s teeth at least three times a week.
