As a responsible dog owner, taking care of your dog’s teeth is important to prevent dental problems such as plaque buildup, bad breath, and gum disease. Here are some tips on how to keep your dog’s teeth healthy:
Brushing your dog’s teeth regularly can help remove plaque buildup. Providing dental chews and toys can also help remove plaque from your dog’s teeth. If your dog already has significant plaque buildup, professional dental cleaning by a veterinarian may be necessary. Postman Pooch have a range of toys that are designed to help with dogs’ teeth below!
Although brushing your dog’s teeth is the best way to keep them clean, other options exist if your dog doesn’t tolerate brushing. Providing dental chews and toys, adding natural dental supplements to their diet, and feeding them a healthy diet can all help keep their teeth clean. Below are some treats that Postman Pooch would recommend for your pooch!
Feeding your dog crunchy foods such as carrots, apples, and green beans can help clean their teeth as they chew. Some commercial dog foods also contain dental benefits, such as promoting chewing and reducing plaque buildup.
Yes, carrots are a great option for cleaning your dog’s teeth as they chew! However, make sure to cut them into small pieces to prevent choking and only give them in moderation as they are high in sugar.
Dental sticks can be a good option for promoting dental health in dogs. But, it’s important to choose the appropriate size for your dog and avoid overfeeding as they can be high in calories. Postman Pooch offers some Forthglade Dental Sticks as well as some Edgar Cooper Dental Sticks, which have breath-freshening mint oil and are only 40 calories per stick!
Neglecting your dog’s dental health can lead to dental problems such as plaque buildup, bad breath, and gum disease. Regular brushing, dental chews, and professional dental cleanings can help prevent these problems and keep your dog’s teeth healthy!
