How to Improve Your Dog’s Oral Hygiene

Does your dog’s breath have you gasping for fresh air?

Unfortunately, dog Tic Tacs haven’t been invented yet, but there are other ways you can improve your dog’s oral hygiene.

It’s important to take care of your pet’s oral hygiene, not only to take care of that stinky breath, but also because poor canine dental care can cause some serious health issues for your furry loved one.

If your dog develops dental disease that goes untreated, the disease can impact the functioning of other organs, such as the heart.

The good news is there are so many products available to improve your dog’s oral hygiene—here are 4 of our favorites.

Dental dog chews

Dental dog chews are a must for canine dental care. They reduce tartar buildup, clean teeth, and freshen breath. And they are something healthy your pup will love to chew on!

Pet-safe toothpaste and brush

Of course, your pet’s teeth should get a good cleaning as well! However, human toothpaste is toxic to your pet’s health so be sure to find a pet-safe brand. There are also toothbrushes available and shapes and sizes that help make it easier to brush your dog’s pearly whites.

Check out this Virbac C.E.T. Oral Hygiene Dog Kit.



Bad-breath eliminator tongue brush

This tongue brush tool is pure GENIUS. You put the paste (flavored as cheeseburger, peanut butter, steak, etc.) on the brush, and your dog will lick it right up—while the brush removes bacteria from the tongue.

ProDen PlaqueOff®

ProDen PlaqueOff® is a food additive that improves pet dental health. The kelp found in the product works to kill the bacteria that allow the tartar to attach to your pet’s teeth. The food additive is available for both dogs and cats.
