I’ll do just about anything to insure the health of my dog. (If you have any doubts, just click here for documented proof.) I’m religious about heartworm pills, flea and tick treatment, vaccinations, and so on. In fact, I enjoy our yearly Vet appointment even if Pritchard doesn’t.
But recently I stumbled upon some pet advice that even I don’t follow. According to the L.A. Times, dog owners should brush their pet’s teeth every other day. Here’s what a Vet had to say to the newspaper.
Veterinary dentists recommend brushing pets' teeth every other day for optimal dental health. Pet toothbrushes come in different sizes, depending on the size of the mouth…It is imperative that you use veterinary toothpaste since pets will swallow the toothpaste, and regular paste for people can cause severe stomach upset. Besides, they make salmon, beef, chicken and malt flavor, which could actually help to make teeth brushing a more pleasant experience for everyone.
