I would love to see more people putting dental care into their standard dental dog grooming
regime and reducing the numbers of extractions we have to do which are expensive to the owner but if left incredibly painful for the dog. Lets face it would you go a whole day without brushing your teeth and expect your breath to smell good?! and we dont lick the places they lick lol x
Dude, I couldn't agree with you more. In fact, most severe medical problems of our dogs are dental disease. To prevent oral disease, it is important to provide dogs with dental care, both professionally and at home. I brush my dog, Lisa, once a day and he seems to enjoy this experience of brushing teeth.
