As a pet owner, you can help take care of your pet's teeth. We recommend training your pet to accept tooth brushing when he or she is very young. Training your pet to let his or her teeth be brushed will help you keep your pet's teeth cleaned and will help you prevent dental problems in the future.
To train your pet, start by putting your finger on your pet's teeth, and then brush the teeth with your finger up and down. Once your pet is used to having your finger brushing his or her teeth, start integrating a toothbrush and toothpaste into the routine. We recommend cleaning your pet's teeth once per day, or at least once per week.
