Continue reading this post to see how you can improve your pet’s dental care to keep them healthy for a lifetime to come.

  • Brush Daily – Just like you do, it’s good to brush your pet teeth daily. Depending on your pet, you can adopt various brushing options. For instance, finger brushes, cotton swabs, actual soft-bristled toothbrushes, and gauze can be used with enzymatic pet formulated toothpaste to brush their teeth. It may take a little trial and error until you discover the best option that cleans your pet’s teeth in the most comfortable manner possible.
  • Offer the Most Appropriate Treats – There are various treats for pets that are said to be good for oral health and cleanliness. Don’t just assume anything will be good for your pet. Instead, look for the treats with the VOHC seal (Veterinary Oral Health Council). Such treats have been tested and proven safe for your pet’s dental health.
  • Look for Possible Signs of Dental Disorders – Since your pet won’t tell you how they feel, it’s your responsibility to check for possible signs of dental diseases. Some things to look for include bad breath, drooling, pawing at the mouth, loose or missing teeth, red/receding/bleeding gums, etc.
  • Regular Veterinarian Exams are A Must – Your pet’s veterinarian is exceptionally trained to spot dental problems that can be dealt with if observed early. Your vet can show you the most viable ways to offer the best at-home dental care to your pets and discuss if other treatments, such as a dental cleaning, are needed.

At Blue Lake Animal Hospital, we want your pet to be healthy. We have a team of experienced veterinarians that have gone through extensive dental training. We are prepared to treat any dental issues your pet may be dealing with.
