Daily brushing of your pets teeth is the best defense against periodontal disease. A soft bristled brush or finger tip brush works well, ask our staff for one. We carry a variety of flavored veterinary approved toothpastes to use including: beef, vanilla mint, poultry and seafood. Please do not use human toothpaste or baking soda. Human toothpastes are often made with various foaming agents that are intended to be rinsed, not swallowed. (Pets don’t rinse!) Even occasional consumption of these toothpastes may cause stomach problems or diarrhea. The high sodium level of baking soda may cause serious problems in some animals, especially those with kidney or heart problems.
