Dental Care Guide For Busy Dog Owners

If you ignore the hygiene of your own teeth, they will eventually rot and fall out. The same goes for your dog’s teeth! Here are some simple dental tips that you and your dog can benefit from implementing in your daily routine.

  1. If you are using the regular brush and paste method, one thing to absolutely remember is to use only pet toothpaste and not the regular human toothpaste as some of its ingredients are not good for dogs.
  2. If your pet doesn’t like the taste of pet toothpaste that much, try using Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) instead which is antiviral, antibacterial and a great material for maintaining the oral health of your pet.
  3. You can make the dental care routine more delicious for your dog with the use of chewy dog treats designed to keep their canine teeth healthy. Vegetables like celery and lightly steamed carrots work as canine dental floss and help them keep their teeth polished while they gnaw on them.

In addition to the above, you can schedule a professional dental cleaning at least once a month. Ambassador Animal Hospital has a professional team of veterinarians to provide dental care services for your pets. Get in touch today at 519-971-3100.
