There are five big steps that can make all the difference to your pet’s dental health:
- Brush your dog’s teeth daily
Just like with human teeth, your pet’s toothy pegs need a nice brush everyday to prevent build-up. Just ask a friendly Pet Doctors team member for the best advice and tools that will make this task as easy as possible. We have finger brushes and pet-friendly toothpaste your pet will actually like the taste of!
- Feed a quality diet
Some dogs will benefit from dental diets that “scrub” their teeth as they chew. We recommend that you talk to your vet before changing their diet on what option is best.
- Give dental treats and toys
Pet-safe treats, such as greenies and prozym dental chews, are an easy way to give them a daily chew-fest which will clean their teeth as they chomp down. Toys that aren’t hard, like rubber balls, and often toys in which you can hide treats also assist in creating a simultaneous cleaning effect as they chew.
- Try a water additive
Healthy Mouth is a simple way to keep their teeth sparkling. Simply adding the diluted solution to their water has proven some amazing results and it’s practically effortless!
- Bring your pet to Pet Doctors to see Dr Peter or Dr Dylan for a regular dental check
We have all the equipment needed to do a comprehensive evaluation of your pet’s dental health right here in the clinic. We will be able to assess what step is best to take towards giving your pet their best, healthiest smile!
