How to Clean a dog

It's very important to keep an eye on your dog's teeth and gums. Generally, a veterinarian must examine a dog's teeth at least once a year, however, you should also check your dog's teeth and gums weekly to make sure there are no signs of infection. The first sign of infection in a dog's mouth is usually spotted by bad breath or "dog breath". This usually occurs when bacteria multiplies due to pieces of food that have gotten stuck in a dog's teeth. Not checking and examining your dog frequently can lead to your dog's teeth getting removed. Another good way to avoid cavities is by brushing your dog's teeth once a week; there is special dog toothpaste available in themarket, or you can ask your veterinarian about this. To brush your dog's teeth, just apply the same amount you would on a toothbrush, and brush his teeth once a week.

  • Examine your dog's mouth to check if there is hardened plaque. Bacteria usually cause plaque as well as bad breath, and in some cases, it causes infection in the dog's gums and swelling.
  • Once you are confident about it, try brushing your dog's teeth. Only use a soft toothbrush and use special dog toothpaste; never use human toothpaste as it can hurt the dog's stomach.
