The Importance of Canine Dental Health

The fact of the matter is prolonged neglect can result in very expensive vet bills, and yet toothbrushes are so inexpensive! With the right toothpaste and toothbrush suited for your dog, you could be able to go years without having to take your little buddy in for a teeth cleaning.

If you start brushing your dog’s teeth at a young age, not only will he or she develop less problems in later years but they will also get used to brushing making it easier for you!

Although you don’t need to brush your dog’s teeth daily, it is recommended. There are a variety of different options to choose from. You can also on the ‘Dental Treats’ link to learn more about treats used to remove tartar from your canine’s teeth as well.


Never EVER give your dog human toothpaste. Because human toothpaste is inedible and dogs are not able to spit, human toothpaste can lead to problems. There are sites that sell both dog toothbrushes and dog toothpaste. Explore your options! There are many to chose from. But whichever one you pick, know you are doing something very important for your four-legged friend.

Benefits of Brushing Your Dog’s Teeth

There are a number of benefits to brushing your dog’s teeth:

Your dog will be HAPPIER. Imagine going a week without brushing your teeth let alone a lifetime.

Your dog’s breath will be more pleasant. If you brush your dog’s teeth, after a few shorts weeks you should notice a big improvement in the smell of your dog’s breath.

Just like human mouths, dog mouths also hold bacteria that, after time, can cause plaque, tartar and eventually lead to tooth decay. By brushing your dog’s teeth you will be cutting down on vet bills due to teeth and gum problems.

Toothbrush Types

Manual: This is your basic model toothbrush. Manual brushes feature a hard handle with bristles on one end. The good thing is that they are inexpensive; the negative to this model is that you have to manually brush your dog’s teeth which may be hard if you are doing it by yourself.

Battery-Powered: This type of toothbrush often will contain a large-handled base that can hold two AA batteries. The bristles will vary and some will spin, while others simply move back and forth in a gentle pattern. Another type of battery-powered toothbrush features bottom bristles that are stationary like a manual toothbrush, while the upper bristles will spin in a circular fashion. Battery-powered brushes clean more effectively and are easier to use on dogs that are a little hard to keep still.

Chewable: There are chewable toothbrush options out there for your dog. These are great because you can apply your dog toothpaste and let them chew on the brush. This is very nice for dogs who do not like to stay still, or dogs that may try to bite you if you stick an object in their mouth.

Although we do not offer our own line of toothbrushes, we encourage you to find an online supplier to explore your options. They typically offer quality products at great prices!
