Cleaning your dog’s teeth is not a subject that we often think about as pet owners. Dog’s teeth build up tartar, plaque and form cavities just like humans do. They will develop gingivitis which is caused when the bacterium that forms inside the tartar and plaque eventually result in gum disease and tooth decay. Symptoms to look for include bad breath, refusal to eat hard food or to play with favorite toys. Regular brushing and an annual or bi-annual cleaning by your veterinarian will ensure that your pets mouth remains healthy and pain free, reducing the need for costly tooth extractions.
