Brushing Teeth With Batpig

February is Pet Dental Health Month

 

For Frenchies it’s especially important to brush since we’re prone to dental disease! So we’re gonna work extra hard to tame puppy breath this month!

 

 

The batpig loves his peanut butter toothpaste ( http://goo.gl/qMzzn ) but for those so inclined, toothpastes come in beef, poultry, and vanilla flavors too!

Check out the AVMA’s tips for keeping our choppers cleaner!

Brushing Your Pet´s Teeth STEP 1: Introduce a brushing program to pets gradually. Avoid over-restraining your pet and keep brushing sessions short and positive. A cat or small dog can be held in your lap. Praise and reassure your pet throughout the process.
STEP 2: At first, dip a finger into beef bouillon for dogs or tuna water for cats. Rub the soaked finger gently over the pet’s mouth and teeth. Make the initial sessions short and positive.
STEP 3: Gradually, introduce gauze over the finger and gently scrub the teeth in a circular motion.
STEP 4: Finally, you can introduce a soft toothbrush designed for pets. Use a sensitive or ultra-soft brush designed for people or a brush designed for pets. Special pet toothbrushes are available from your veterinarian or specialty pet store. Don’t use toothpaste designed for people because it could upset the animal’s stomach.
