5. Forgetting To Brush
Would you go days, weeks, or months without brushing your pearly whites? I hope the answer is “No,” and neither should your dog. Just like us, dogs develop plaque and bacteria in their mouths, which can ultimately result in tooth decay. Plus, if you brush your furry friend’s teeth regularly, it will improve that unpleasant dog breath. It will also prevent you and the dog from vet visits later on.
This task might not be easy at first, but if you take it slow, then you and the dog will get used to it. Canine toothbrushes and toothpaste are available at nearly every pet store, and there are numerous online tutorials and guides on how to go about it.
So, keep yourself informed and prepare your pooch for the first time. Treats can be helpful during the process, and going slow and being gentle go a long way as well.
