How to clean your dog's teeth
Dog oral hygiene is just as important as ours!
Follow our handy guide to keeping your dog's teeth clean and their mouth fresh.
Before you start
Before you introduce a toothbrush or toothpaste you have to get your dog used to you touching their mouth.
This may take a few weeks so start practicing as soon as you can.
1. Introducing toothpaste
Ask your vet to recommend a dog toothpaste or speak to someone at your local pet shop. They come in all sorts of meaty flavours!
2. The tooth burush
Ask your vet or local pet shop for the best dog tooth brush they recommend. Some dogs just will not let you use a brush of any kind so look for a finger brush instead. They are soft rubbery finger covers with small bristles.
3. Keep it up!
You have put in all the hard work now you just need to keep it up!
See our Easy dog health check guide for what to look for in a dog's mouth.
If you notice any changes in your dog's mouth contact your vet for advice.
