Taking care of your dog’s teeth

Friday, June 8, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy

If you catch your dog’s teeth problems early on, you can help avoid severe dental disease which can take years off your dog’s life. The simplest way to keep track of your dog’s teeth is to look at them regularly. Look for any signs that could indicate a problem. To inspect your dog’s teeth, lift the lips all around his mouth then look at both the front and back teeth as closely as possible. Be very gentle so he doesn’t accidentally¬† nip at you. If you notice any redness or swelling, see your vet right away. Your vet will closely examine your dog’s teeth during his regular visit. Visit your vet every six to twelve months. If he does find any problems, treatment can begin early. You should also brush your dog’s teeth at least three times a week. Your vet will give you specific instructions on brushing.

Remember, your pets count!
