Do You Brush Your Dog’s Teeth? Remedy for prevention of gum disease and cavities.

February 2013 is National Pet Dental Care month.
Some veterinarians are recommending that we brush our pets
teeth twice a day.  Galtee likes to have his teeth brushed with an electric tooth brush in the morning, & a triangle shaped toothbrush at night.  His favorite toothpaste is C.E.T. (Virbac) malt flavored enzymatic toothpaste.  He loves to have his teeth brushed!  I just say “teeth” and he runs to his bathroom and licks his lips.  He has no gum disease or tooth decay.   Gum disease is now known to cause heart disease in animals.  Galtee’s friend Troy had 5 molars removed a few days ago; his gums were so bad his teeth had to be removed–this was preventable with daily brushing.  There are many articles on line and on  http://petmd.com  that discuss gum disease, plaque and cavities.  Many pet dental problems are preventable with daily dental hygiene.
