Did you know that brushing your dog's teeth is just as important as brushing your own? According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 80% of dogs need professional oral care by age 3. Brushing your dog's teeth is easier if you follow this step-by-step guide. You can find more expert advice at PetDental.com, a website sponsored by Hill's and the American Veterinary Dental Society.
Poor oral health often begins with a buildup of sticky plaque that, if not removed, hardens to form tartar. This can impact the health of your dog's teeth and gums.
Signs of a Problem:
- Bad breath
- Yellow or brown buildup on teeth
Always consult your veterinarian if you have questions about your dog's health.
