Puppy kisses are the best, unless they are accompanied by stinky puppy breath. Sometimes it’s simply a matter of them eating something gross off the sidewalk, but sometimes it can be much more serious. According to Animal Planet, 85% of dogs over age 4 are suffering from some form of periodontal disease. Luckily, there are products to help you keep your dog’s teeth healthy, so you can enjoy those puppy kisses and your dog can enjoy a healthy life. All of these are available on chewy.com and are very much affordable… so there is no excuse not to brush!
Remember when we were younger and our toothpaste was pink, bubblegum flavored and had cartoon characters on it? This is the dog version of that. Just yummy enough that you’ll dog will let you put your hands in his mouth and still cleans their teeth!
They’re like makeup wipes, but for plaque! They’re a little bit easier to maneuver than the toothbrush and give you a lot of control. But be warned, your dog may try to eat them… or maybe that’s just mine.
We are obsessed with chewing. Bully sticks, shoes, yak cheese, carrots… the list goes on. Different size bones force Theo to use different teeth and scrape the plaque off the teeth. It also keeps them entertained for hours.
You know how fancy you feel when you add a lemon slice to your water? That’s how I feel adding these to Theo’s water dish. It’s such an easy addition to their diets and it sneaks extra vitamins into their routine!
Whether it’s one of these products, our your own routine, it’s crucial to your dog’s health to make sure you are keeping their pearly whites pearly and white! How do you clean your pup’s teeth?
