This toothbrush brushes all 3 sides of your dog's teeth at once (bottom, front and back) with one simple brushing motion. This multi-tasking toothbrush massages your dog's gums as it cleans his teeth. Firm scrubbing bristles positioned to clean your dog's teeth are paired with softer massaging bristles that work the gums, helping to prevent gum disease.
Why brush your dogs teeth? There really is no excuse for ignoring your dog’s dental care, but many dog owners do. The American Veterinary Dental Society found that 80 percent of dogs have periodontal disease before the age of 3… and that condition carries a lot of serious health risks.Without brushing, plaque builds up on your dog’s teeth. It breaks off and is absorbed into the bloodstream. That can lead to blocked arteries, which causes heart disease and kidney problems.
What if your dog hates his/her toothbrush? Be advised that nothing, no matter what the manufacturer says, works as well as brushing your dogs teeth. The abrasion provided by the brush is critical in ridding the dog’s teeth of plaque and tartar. That being said, doing something is better than doing nothing.Tips on keeping your dog's teeth clean:
- Brush at least 3 times per week to get maximum benefit
- Don't use human toothpaste unless you have taught your dog to spit! Look on the back of your toothpaste. You will most likely find a statement that it should not be ingested. This is because it contains soap. Soap creates foam, which gives people the perception that the product is cleaning but is not indicative of the cleaning power of a product (it is for marketing purposes: perception is reality). Toothpaste designed specifically for pets does not contain soap; it won't foam up; and it can be swallowed safely.
- Replace the toothbrush when the bristles become frayed or every 3 months, as the brush will start to harbor microorganisms.
