Helps prevent gum disease
The less dental work that your pet needs, the lower the cost, just like people. Preventing gum disease is good for your pet and your budget!
Just like people, even with toothbrushing, pets still need a yearly dental exam, a dental cleaning, and dental x-rays to check for problems under the gums.
Well socialized and trusting pets quickly accept toothbrushing because it means attention from you, it doesn’t hurt, and it involves a treat.
Pets are used to having things in their mouth because that’s how they carry stuff. So a toothbrush is not a big deal.
Ask your vet for a ToothBrush Training™ appointment to help get started.
Always Praise, Never Punish
Make toothbrushing part of the daily routine by brushing at about the same time each day.
Keep the experience positive by using lots of praise and giving consistent rewards (food or toy).
Always end on a good note.
Some dog owners prefer to hold small dogs on their lap or cradled on their back like a baby.
Some cat owners prefer to kneel on the floor behind their sitting cat.
If your dog doesn’t like toothbrushing, dental pain could be the problem.
Please contact your veterinarian for a complete dental exam with dental x-rays.
