1) Brush your pet’s teeth everyday
While it may seem like a daunting task at first, you simply need to introduce the activity gradually and make the experience a positive one for your pet. Patience, the right tools and guidance from your veterinarian can get your pet accustomed to it in no time.
2) Take your pet in for regular oral checkups
Your veterinarian will perform a thorough check on your pet’s dental health and take appropriate measures.Although brushing can remove plaque, it cannot remove tartar. If your pet has tartar, your veterinarian will remove it with professional cleaning and polishing. You will also be given information on home-care and follow-up.
3) Offer safe treats and toys for daily chewing
This can help prevent gum disease by removing plaque and stimulating the gums. Look for treats and toys that are not hard, like rubber balls or rawhide strips.
4) Provide a good quality diet
Feed your pet dry food instead of moist, canned ones. Dry food can help to remove plaque and stimulate the gums through exercise. There are also foods that have additives that prevent plaque from hardening.
