Teeth Brushing Tips

5 Simple steps to brushing your pets teeth

Keen to keep your pet’s mouth in sparkling shape, but not sure where to start?  Here are some handy tips that will hopefully make your lives a little bit easier when it comes to brushing time!

  1. Using pet toothpaste, smear a little onto your finger ans let your pet lick it off to get used to the taste.
  2. Pop some pet toothpaste on a finger brush, and gently rub it on your pet’s teeth for a short time only.  Reward them with lots of praise if they let you do this without any fuss.
  3. Gradually build this up, brushing their teeth more frequently and for longer periods.
  4. When they’re happy to accept the finger brush, move up to a full toothpaste, and repeat steps 2 and 3. (ask your vet about pet friendly brushes)
  5. Once your pet is happy with having their teeth brushed, try to do this on a daily basis.  It can make a huge difference to your pet’s dental health.
