Brushing Your Dogs Teeth
Help stop pet dental pain
Brushing your dog’s teeth takes less than a minute per day and is just as important for your dog as it is for you. If chews, toys and kibble worked as well as a toothbrush, wouldn’t people be using them, too?

Small Dogs At Risk!
Small dogs are at high risk for very serious problems from untreated periodontitis. Infection weakens the bone and can result in a broken jaw. Infection that starts around an upper fang tooth can eat a hole through the roof of the mouth into the nose. Annual dental exams with full mouth dental X-rays are needed to find bone loss early!
