If you want to keep your pet healthy, then it’s important to pay attention to their dental hygiene. Fortunately, creating a dental hygiene routine for your pet is easier than you might think. Here’s what you need to know.
Schedule regular dental cleanings for your pet.
Whether you have a cat or a dog, it’s critical that your pet’s teeth are being cleaned annually by a professional. During the cleaning, your vet will check to make sure that your pet’s oral hygiene is in excellent condition. They will then clean your pet’s teeth in order to remove plaque and tartar.
Brush your pet’s teeth at home.
It may sound like a major undertaking, but brushing your pet’s teeth regularly can be a simple part of your pet’s dental hygiene routine. Make sure to buy a toothbrush and toothpaste that have been specially designed for your cat or dog’s teeth.
An alternative to brushing.
What to do if your pet says “no” to brushing! Dental wipes are a helpful alternative to at-home-brushing that many pet parents have found great success with. Oftentimes easier to use, it’s important to remember these are not a substitute for regular professional dental cleanings.
