Tips for Preventing Dental Disease in Dogs & Cats
You can play an important role in preventing your pet’s dental problems with just a few simple steps, including:
- Brushing your cat’s or dog’s teeth daily
- Adding dental chews or dental treats to their diet
- Talking to your veterinarian about prescription dental diets
- Scheduling routine professional dental cleanings at our hospital
We understand that brushing your pet’s teeth can be a challenge, but even doing so once or twice a week makes a big difference! If your pet is adamant about not allowing you to brush their teeth, try a piece of gauze on your finger and rub their teeth and gums. If even that won’t work, relying on dental chews or a prescription diet is an effective alternative!
