Brushing our teeth is often one of the first things we do when we wake up in the morning. If we didn't, we would have to spend the rest of the day feeling grimy and missing that refreshing feeling.
This is for good reason.
The care of our teeth and gums is directly correlated with our health! If we didn't brush for days, weeks or months, just imagine how gross it would feel!
Our dogs are no different.
Just like us, poor dental hygiene in dogs can lead to health issues and hefty vet bills.
By age 3, over 80 percent of dogs have some form of dental disease, also known as periodontal disease. Dog dental disease has serious consequences, so maintaining good dog dental care is very important.
How often should you brush?
It is recommended that you brush your dog's teeth twice daily if able. The more you do it, the less of an aversion your dog will have to the process! We know that life can be hectic and twice daily brushings for everyone might be a bit too much to keep track of. Not a problem. As long as you can find the time to brush those pearly K-9's canines at least 3 times per week, you will see a difference in their plaque build up. Some other ways to help keep plaque at bay are to give your dog either dental bones or toys to help clean out those tough spots!
Here at Liberty Dog Spa we can help get that dog breath under control for you! Next time you stop in be sure to get the Liberty Deluxe added to your bath or groom!
