Keeping Your Pet’s Teeth Healthy

You don’t like having bad breath, right? Well, neither does your pet! Oral hygiene is just as important for our pets as it is for ourselves, and we have some of the top ways for keeping your pet’s teeth healthy. Since this is a matter of your pet’s health, it’s always recommended to consult your veterinarian before making any changes.

Brush Your Pet’s Teeth

The simplest way to ensure your pet’s teeth are healthy is by brushing them. There are a few different ways to brush your pet’s teeth, but it all starts by having the right toothpaste. You’ll want to purchase a toothpaste that’s specifically made for pets because toothpaste for humans contains ingredients that are toxic for our furry friends. From there, you can use either a standard toothbrush or a brush that fits over your finger to shine your pet’s pearly whites!

Feed a Raw Diet

Another way to keep your pet’s teeth healthy is by feeding them a raw diet. Raw foods are rich in vitamins, minerals, and proteins and act as a natural dental abrasive to effectively clean your pet’s teeth while chewing. From Frozen Raw Dinner Patties and Wholesome Grain Raw Coated Kibble for dogs to Frozen Raw Dinner Morsels and Marie’s Magical Dinner Dust for cats, we offer a wide variety of raw products that can aid in the health and cleanliness of your pet’s teeth.

Give Your Pet Something
to Chew On

Similar to your pet’s favorite toy, a good bone will also help keep its teeth clean! The movements of your pet chewing a bone remove plaque and minimize the chance of tartar buildup. What does this mean? It means that giving your pet bones regularly will keep its teeth cleaner and healthier for a longer period of time.

Professional Cleanings

If you’ve tried everything under the sun when it comes to cleaning your pet’s teeth and they are not improving, it might be time to visit a professional. Just like dentists for humans, there are also dentists for pets that specialize in keeping their teeth happy and healthy. Although more expensive than other methods, a professional teeth cleaning might be what your pet needs the most.
