Veterinarians recommend brushing your pet's teeth once every day as the single best method of pet dental care. Several helpful tools let you carry out this crucial component in your pet's health care. Always use toothpaste formulated for pets, as human toothpaste can upset your pet's stomach.
Drs. Foster & Smith Toothpaste
While there are many types of pet toothpaste on the market today, our exclusive brand was formulated by our veterinarians. Its tartar control formula helps fight plaque.
EZ Dog Triple Toothbrush
The EZ Dog Triple Toothbrush cleans all surfaces of the tooth at the same time with the 3-way action of this triple-head pet toothbrush. Three independent, flexible heads feature gentle nylon bristles that gently remove food and debris.
Sponges are the preferred method of applying oral solutions or for softly cleaning when your pet's gums are swollen or hurting.
Aside from brushing with a toothpaste, there are other ways you can help remove plaque and tartar from your pet's teeth, before they have a chance to build up and lead to tooth loss or gum disease.
Dental Cleanser Solution
Dental Cleanser Solution, a non-alcoholic, gentle solution, uses chlorhexidine to reduce the number of bacteria that lead to plaque and bad breath. It can be applied with a finger brush, sponge, or a pet toothbrush. It requires no rinsing and is more economical than other chlorhexidine solutions.
Dental Clens Pads
Saturated with just the right amount of Dental Cleanser Solution, Dental Clens Pads allow you to provide a quick, once-over of your pet's teeth. They gently eliminate bad breath and reduce plaque without irritating your pet's gums. These convenient pads are a great alternative when you don't have time to brush.
Pet Kiss Plaque & Tartar Control
Pet Kiss Plaque & Tartar Control dissolves plaque and whitens teeth naturally with a non-chemical mixture of Vitamin B, beet juice, and vegetable glycerine. This formula is added directly to your pet's drinking water. It has no odor or taste, so your pet will never know it's there.
Veterinary scalers remove plaque mechanically. You can use their blunt edges to scrape away plaque at the surface of teeth, below the gumline, and between teeth.
