  • Home dental care is important to a pet’s overall health. Some pets resist brushing, but most eventually accept it.  Getting fido into a routine at a young age is vital.  Here are some tips on brushing away bad cat and dog breath:
  • Start by getting pets used to having their mouth handled. Gently massage lips with a finger in a circular motion for 30 to 60 seconds once or twice a day.
  • Once he’s comfortable with this routine, introduce a toothbrush. Use a toothbrush and toothpaste developed specifically for dogs and cats.
  • Focus brushing on the outer tooth surfaces, as that is where most of the tartar buildup will be.
  • You may only be able to brush a few teeth a first. However, with patience and time, eventually dogs and cats should be okay with brushing all teeth in one sitting.
  • NEVER use human toothpaste – dogs can’t spit the toothpaste out and it will upset a pet’s stomach if swallowed.

If Fluffy refuses to “open wide” every time the toothbrush is near, consider using specially formulated dental diets or treats, enzyme-enhanced chews or dental toys to help keep tartar and gingivitis at bay:

  • Dental chew toys and rawhide strips can help remove plaque.
  • Keep pets from chewing hard items that could fracture their teeth.
  • Try GREENIES® which are nutritious, easy to digest and contain proteins that break down into little teeth-cleaning, easy to swallow and digestible bites.
  • GREENIES® dental chews now contain added natural sources of antioxidants to promote a healthy immune system, as well as natural sources of dietary fiber for digestibility. Plus, our new recipe now carries the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) Seal of Acceptance.
