When it comes to our dogs, there’s nothing we wouldn’t do to keep them healthy. We give them healthy and high quality food and treats, so why not go an extra mile.
It may seem like extra work, but just like humans, caring for our dog’s teeth can make or break their health in their later part of life. After all, we would rather see them smiling than being in a painful situation.
By brushing your dog's teeth at least three times a week (ideally everyday) in addition to feeding them the right foods, it can assist in helping removing plaque and tarter buildup, which can prevent kidney, liver and heart issues.
FOODS TO AVOID
- High starch chews or dental bones
- Treats with fillers
FOODS TO EAT
- Celery: Make a dental chew by filling the celery "canal" with peanut butter, freeze it before giving it to your pup.
- Kelp: help is known for removing plaque and enhancing dental health in dogs. Add a tsp in your dog's food a day in their food or frozen fruit dessert!
- Add splash of colors: Fruits like strawberries, papaya, blueberry, and pomegranate, contain certain enzymes that your dog cannot produce on their own, which help breakdown the tartar buildup.
