Tips for Proper Dental Healthcare for Dogs

Keeping your dog safe, happy, and healthy includes having a plan in place for their dental healthcare. There are certain things you can do at home to care for your dog’s teeth, gums, and mouth, but you should also visit your veterinarian regularly for dental cleanings and checkups.

Check for Signs of Dental Health Issues

Be aware of the warning signs of dental health issues in dogs so that you can seek care from a veterinarian if necessary. Check regularly for bad breath, discoloration of the tongue or gums, bleeding from the mouth or gums, and teeth that are loose, missing, damaged or discolored. These are all warning signs of an oral health issue that should be treated immediately by a veterinarian.  

Clean Your Dog’s Teeth and Gums

You should regularly clean your dog’s teeth and gums at home. Ask your veterinarian how often you need to brush your dog’s teeth, and what tools and products you can use. Never use human toothpaste or toothbrushes on a dog. If your dog absolutely won’t tolerate tooth brushing, you can use dental wipes or tooth wipes meant for dogs. 

Give Your Dog Safe Chew Toys

Some chew toys are dangerous for dogs and can damage your dog’s teeth and gums. Ask your veterinarian which chew toys are safe for your dog’s health. There are many different types of dental chews and dental treats that actually clean plaque from your dog’s teeth naturally, and can help maintain his oral health. 

Visit a Veterinarian Regularly

In addition to the dental care you give your dog at home, you should also visit a veterinarian regularly. Your veterinarian will evaluate your dog’s oral health, provide professional dental cleanings, and can perform x-rays to uncover hidden problems. Preventative dental care will prevent serious health problems from occurring, and will help your dog live a long, safe, and healthy life.
