Ways to Help Keep Your Pet’s Mouth Clean

Stinky breath can easily be disregarded as being normal with dogs and cats. However, that bad breath might be indicative that your pet is suffering from oral health problems. There are things you should do in order to ensure your pet has healthy teeth and gums.

Brush Their Teeth

 

Your cat or dog might be unable to brush their own teeth, but you can certainly do it. Special toothbrushes and toothpastes are available to brush pets’ teeth. Make sure you get supplies specifically designed for pets. Using toothpaste for people can make animals sick if it is consumed.

Special Treats

 

Certain treats are available for dogs and cats to chew on that can help knock off plaque. Make sure you use these treats in tandem with a healthy, well-balanced diet.

Routine Trips to the Vet

 

Similarly to how you need to see a dentist every so often, your pets should be getting dental check-ups often as well. The next time you take your pet to the vet, make sure its teeth and gums are checked. If you have any concerns or have noticed anything unusual, bring those up.

With proper preventative measures, you can be reasonably confident that your puppy or kitty will enjoy good dental health. Visit this website to learn more about getting good pet dental care in Soquel.
