Taking care of your dogs teeth is a very important task as a PetParent. Although dogs are not as prone to cavities like humane, they can get life threatening diseases through their mouths. So lets brush up on oral care for your dog!
You should brush your dogs teeth, and brush them on the regular. Talk to your vet about a good schedule to follow. Make sure you get a dog friendly tooth brush and toothpaste for your dog. Fluoride is poisonous to dogs, so make sure to NEVER use your tooth paste.
