Keep Your Dog’s Teeth Clean with These Tips

Dog teeth cleaning is crucial for maintaining your pet’s overall health. Your veterinarian can perform a full cleaning under anesthesia every few years. Read on to find out about a few simple ways to keep your dog’s mouth clean and sweet-smelling in between professional cleanings.

Why It’s Important to Keep Your Dog’s Teeth Clean:

Keeping up with your pet’s oral health is very important. In fact, dog teeth cleaning can:

  • Help prevent gum disease
  • Help prevent tooth decay and abscessed teeth
  • Help prevent bad breath
  • Help prevent oral pain and discomfort while eating
  • Help extend your pet’s life span by keeping harmful bacteria from a dirty mouth from entering your pet’s bloodstream and damaging vital organs

Tips for Keeping Your Dog’s Teeth Clean:

  1. Brush your dog’s teeth regularly. Just like humans, dogs need to have their teeth brushed regularly. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush designed specifically for dogs and pet-safe toothpaste. Click here for ways to slowly and successfully introduce your pet to tooth brushing.
  2. Feed your dog dental-friendly snacks and chews. There are several commercial dog treats and foods that are designed to help clean your pet’s teeth as they chew. Here is a list of approved products for dog oral care:
  3. Avoid human foods that are bad for dogs’ teeth. Many human foods can be harmful to dogs, including those high in sugar or acid. Avoid giving your dog candy, cookies, or other sweet snacks.

By following these simple tips, you can help keep your dog’s teeth clean and healthy. A healthy mouth leads to a happy and healthy pet!

How Often Should Your Dog See the Vet for a Dental Checkup?

At Coronado Pet Hospital, we recommend that dogs see their veterinarian for oral health checkups at every annual visit, as your vet can spot any problems and recommend treatment before real issues develop. After about the age of 7, we recommend that dogs have a complete tooth cleaning under full anesthesia every 3-5 years. However, some small-breed dogs may need yearly cleanings to maintain a healthy mouth. Talk to the trusted veterinarians at Coronado Pet Hospital for guidance.
