Owners of dogs know that if they do not brush their teeth for a long time, they will have plaque on their teeth. When the plaque accumulates to a certain extent, it will become calculus. Dental calculus can cause many oral diseases, so brushing is very important for dogs. Some owners don’t know how to brush their dogs’ teeth properly and make them adapt to dog toothpaste. Following will introduce you how to make dogs adapt to dog toothpaste.
Dogs parents should brush their dogs’ teeth 2-3 times a week from 6 months. At first, dogs will not adapt to resistance, but if they insist on doing it, they will develop better habits. First, take a gauze strip and dip it in a little physiological saline to wrap it around the index finger, and then wipe the gums and crevices in sequence. The action should be light to avoid damaging the gums. After the dog adapts, dip in a little pet toothpaste to brush his teeth. This toothpaste does not need to rinse, but can be dried by himself. The above operation can last for 2 weeks. After the dog is fully adapted, brush his teeth with the dog toothbrush dipped in the dog toothpaste, gently lift the upper lip, use the toothbrush to follow the teeth, slowly do circular movement, and gently brush his teeth and the tooth bed. Gradually increase the number of teeth brushing every day, but slowly, do not brush far away, brush the time to about 30 seconds, brush to every corner. After brushing, you should give your pet some praise and reward. After long-term adherence, you will get the ideal nursing effect. Wash your dog’s teeth every six months to prevent tooth problems.
