Do you Brush Your Dog’s Teeth?
Good Dog’s Health includes Brushing Your Dog’s Teeth.
It was surprising to find out from American Veterinary Dental Society that 80% of dogs at the age of 3 shows sign of oral disease.
My mom started brushing my teeth since I was a young pup.
She uses a finger brush and makes a homemade toothpaste (as a result of an allergic reaction from a store bought).
Using simple ingredients you can make your own dog toothpaste.
How To Make Your Own Dog Toothpaste?
Ingredients: Liquid Broth (ex: chicken (you can make your own broth too)), baking soda, salt, coconut oil, cinnamon (optional)
1) Mix baking soda and salt with the liquid broth.
2) Add coconut oil to the mixture.
3) Optional: Add cinnamon to the mixture.
4) Mix well and Create a paste.
Baking soda is an abrasive that removes plaque. It kills the nasty germs and also whitens the dog’s teeth. Salt is also an abrasive that kills bacteria and gets rid of plaque on teeth. Cinnamon is a gentle abrasive that will make your dog’s breath smell better.
Sample mixture: 3 tablespoon of baking soda, 1/3 of salt, 1 tablespoon of liquid broth, 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
What toothbrush to use for your dog?
Mom has been using a finger toothbrush but recently introduced to Zututh.
Zututh is a toothbrush made specifically for dogs. It is designed to adapt to the unique arrangement of a dog’s teeth. Zututh is designed to clean the areas that collect plaque the most.
It has a soft bristle, angle head and an easy grip. It is also designed to be longer than a human toothbrush. Zututh dog toothbrushes are available in 3 sizes: small, medium and large.
I had an easy transition from a finger to a regular dog’s toothbrush. The battery operate was a bit “tricky” when used on my back tooth but it works well on my front teeth. Did the buzzing noise bothered me? Yes and one reason the battery operated toothbrush was only used in couple seconds. Having a great tasting toothpaste made a difference in the process of brushing my teeth.
