[ TAKE ] : The Perfect Way How To Clean Your Dog’s Teeth At Home !! Cleaning your dog’s teeth at home is more than just brushing their teeth. For some, even brushing their dog’s teeth can become a daunting task. But if you’re up to it, you can do the following steps to clean your dog’s teeth at home and save them from gum disease. Get your dog a brushing kit made for them If you plan on brushing your dog’s teeth, the first thing you must NOT do is to use the regular toothbrush that you use on yourself. You might think that a regular toothbrush would work and it might, but brushing your dog’s teeth is more challenging than it looks – but it can be done. As a first step, get your dog a canine toothbrush. You can buy one from a dog shop or order one online. Canine toothbrushes are smaller with special bristles to reach into your dog’s teeth, gums, and mouth. Usually, canine toothbrushes can be worn on your finger so you can easily brush your dog’s teeth. You should also buy a toothpaste specifically made for them since human toothpaste can cause stomach upset among dogs. If you don’t have a dog toothbrush and toothpaste yet, you can improvise with a piece of soft gauze – make sure that it’s clean – and a paste made from mixing a teaspoon of baking soda and water.
