Clean and Whiten Your Dog’s Teeth & Reduce Dog Bad Breath
Brushing a dog’s teeth can take some getting used to, but it’s very important for the overall health and wellbeing of your beloved pet and is often overlooked. Allowing your dog’s dental health to fall to the wayside leaves room for health problems such as gingivitis, tartar, bad breath, and gum disease. In fact, it’s estimated that over two-thirds of dogs have infections in the tissues surrounding their teeth. With regular brushing, this can be avoided.
Simply follow these steps:
Mix a few teaspoons of baking soda with a small amount of Hydrogen Peroxide 3% - Oxygen PlusTM.
Keep adding hydrogen peroxide until you get a thick—but not gritty—paste.
Using a toothbrush, apply the mixture to your dog’s teeth and brush for 2 minutes.
Leave the mixture on their teeth for 1-2 minutes.
Thoroughly rinse out with water.
Many pet owners don’t purposely ignore their dog’s dental health—it’s just not an aspect of pet care that many people are aware of. While dental chews are great to support your dog’s teeth, a dental chew every once in a while isn’t going to cut it. Now that you know how essential it is to care for your dog’s oral health, it’s important to start brushing your dog’s teeth daily. Before you go rushing to your medicine cabinet to grab your toothpaste, it’s important to note that dogs cannot use human toothpaste, as they can not spit and rinse like humans do and will instinctively swallow it, which could have health repercussions. Instead, you must opt for a dog-friendly option that’s non-toxic and safe for your furry friend.
While there are a lot of products on the market for dogs’ teeth, there’s a simple, affordable option that biodegrades into natural elements. By brushing your dog’s teeth with a mixture of baking soda and Hydrogen Peroxide 3% - Oxygen PlusTM, you’ll effectively remove plaque, stains, and bacteria.
Just like humans, your dog’s oral health is directly related to their overall health, and by keeping their teeth clean, you can add years to your dog’s life. How’s that for incentive? Healthy teeth are also important so that they can properly and painlessly chew and digest their food. Oh, and did we mention, using hydrogen peroxide and baking soda will improve their stinky breath?
