Does Your Dog Have…Dog Breath?









Over the past few years I have accumulated quite a list of pet blogs that I subscribe to.  They come in all shapes, sizes, and topics.  Recently, I stumbled on this one called YouDidWhatWithYourWeiner.  The title alone made me giggle; so I had to read more!  Wouldn't you?  One of her recent articles, entitled I Don't Brush My Dog's Teeth was one I completely related to.  Not all dogs are delighted with brushes and paste, even if they do taste like liver.  She mentioned that giving your dog a high-protein, grain-free kibble can cause teeth to worsen.  I had no idea!  I'm going to do some research this week.  Have any of you heard this?  What do you think?

  2. Dog plaque is something that a lot of dog owners neglect. First of all, the accumulation of plaque around the gums and teeth will happen regardless of diet. But most commercial dog foods do contribute to increased dog plaque.

    A proper dog toothbrush is what you really need. Owning a dog and his dental hygiene come hand in hand. You can visit any pet store for a dog toothbrush.

    Try to look for a dog toothbrush that can be used for comfortably for teeth brushing. Also, start young so that your dog gets used to having his teeth and gums cleaned.
