MAKE EVERY MOUTHFUL COUNT
Every mouthful your pet takes should be hard work! Try to imagine what your pet would do in the wild. He would be munching on c hewy, sinewy food that requires ripping, tearing and crunching. This is the natural and best way to clean the teeth.
Pet Doctors has excellent diets available that are actually designed to clean the tooth as your pet chews. We can also advise you on the best chews and treats available when it comes to dental care. Not every chew on the market is entirely safe for your pet so it’s best to ask us for advice.
BRUSHING IS BEST
Brushing your pet's teeth is considered the gold standard of home care. We have tooth brushes that enable you to get into the hard to reach places. Keep in mind that it can take a few months for your pet to get used to the idea! Daily brushing is recommended (in an ideal world) however a couple of times a week is better than no brushing at all. If you are using a dental paste make sure it is pet friendly (as human toothpaste is toxic to pets).
This advice given by Pet Guardians Australia is of a general nature, and care should be taken when dealing with pets that have bad/severe oral hygiene. Always consult your vet if you are concerned and before changing your pet's diet.
