Getting into the habit
It’s a good practice to start caring for your pup’s teeth at a young age. Plaque and tartar can build up anytime in a dog's life. These bacteria can develop into big problems as your dog ages if left unattended.
Start regularly brushing your dog’s teeth and massaging their gums as early as when they are a puppy. Not only does this help their teeth and gums develop cleanly, but it also trains your dog about regular dental hygiene. The more your dog understands that brushing is a part of life, the easier it will be to maintain the routine when they get bigger.
You can also keep things fun with dental chew toys and snacks. These are great for any dog, not just teething puppies, because they are designed to naturally clean teeth while the dog gnaws on them. There are plenty of these toys and snacks to choose from on the market, so check with your vet which ones will ﬁt best with your dog’s diet.
