Tips about your dog teeth health ??

Hello Friends,
Dental disease (especially periodontal disease) is the most common disease in our canine companions. It is also one of the most preventable and treatable diseases. Fortunately, we can reduce or even prevent dental disease by feeding a crunchy diet, appropriate chew treats and toys and daily tooth brushing. The following are steps to guide you on how to brush your dog's teeth:
1.The first step is to start with a clean, healthy mouth. Good dental
hygiene should start with a young pet with healthy new teeth and gums, or after your pet has had a professional dental cleaning.
2.You will need a soft-bristled tooth brush and veterinary toothpaste. Human toothpastes and baking soda may cause problems. Furthermore, veterinary toothpastes have flavors that are appealing to dogs. Anything other than a bristled tooth brush will not get below the gum line, which is the most important area to brush.
