it is important to brush your dogs teeth regularly. you can buy dog toothpaste in any pet supply store. getting started is the hard part. It will take a while for you and your dog to work out a time of day and method for brushing. Here are some tips to get started:
- go to the pet store and buy dog toothpaste and tooth brush. There are many types of tooth brushes. with my 6 pound tea cup chihuahua, the pet store dental brushes did not work, so I actually bought an Oral B kids first toothbrush which works great.
- pick a time of day and location to brush your dogs teeth. consistency is important to build this tooth brushing habit, so try to pick a time and location you can use daily
- after brushing your dogs teeth, you should reward him/her. I have a specific Omega 3 treat that I give to my dog after every brushing.
