Canine Dental Care

Hello, it’s Boris from to talk about how important it is to take care of your dog’s teeth.

Why? Because we are meat eaters and bone crunchers and we need our teeth to chew our food.

Do you have any idea how difficult it is to gum a tasty bone?

We can’t get new teeth or keep our teeth in a glass, like some of you humans.

My humans always brushed my teeth with an electric brush dipped in hydrogen peroxide and I never had a tooth problem my whole life.

Here’s “Phoebe the Papillon”, our Health Care spokesdog to tell you more…

Hello fellow fur folks, today we’re going to talk about the importance of a healthy mouth and keeping our choppers in good shape.

I know, I know, we don’t particularly enjoy having our teeth brushed, even though our humans are pretty good at helping us with this.

Anyway, without thumbs like they have and those long fingers that can grip pretty much anything, we need them to brush our teeth for us, so just relax and get used to it.

Why should you get used to it?

Simple…unhealthy mouth equals unhealthy dog, and if you let your teeth go, you won’t be able to enjoy your most favorite pastime — that’s right — EATING!

Your teeth will fall out, you’ll get nasty, stinky, painful gum disease and you’ll be eating mush for the rest of your life instead of chewy meat and those crunchy bone treats you like.

Of course, there’s pastes and cleaners you can get your humans to buy for you that will clean your teeth, and help keep them strong, like those weirdly shaped dental chew bones or Dentastix™, but without real teeth brushing that includes getting under the gumline, that hard, tartar, plaque stuff that’s like cement will start to grow on your teeth and that can cause a whole lot of troubles.

Don’t be a weenie, sit still, cooperate, and just get used to the teeth brushing. You’ll be SO glad you did.

Also ask your humans for one of those rotary electric toothbrushes because it does a REALLY good job at cleaning AND the humans don’t have to worry about pushing too hard and making our gums bleed.

When your humans help with your dental care you won’t have bad breath or suffer from dental disease, which means you’ll keep all your pearly whites and can enjoy your favorite foods!
