Our pets depend on us for their oral care. Trouble begins when food particles and bacteria build up in the mouth and form plaque and tartar, which leads to gingivitis and the more severe periodontal disease. Periodontal disease leads to tooth decay, bad breath, bleeding gums, and eventual tooth loss. Further complications arise when bacteria from the mouth enter the animal's bloodstream and cause damage to the heart, liver, kidneys, and lungs. Monitor your pet's oral health and contact your veterinarian if you have concerns.

The American Veterinary Dental Society recommends three steps for pet oral health:
- Take your pet to a veterinarian for a physical exam, which should include a thorough dental exam, at least once a year.
- Start a regular home dental care routine. This includes brushing your pet's teeth with toothpastes formulated especially for pets, such as Drs. Foster & Smith’s Enzymatic Toothpastes (item #35276 or #35277), and wiping his teeth with convenient Dental Clens® Pads.
- Rawhide is also a great complement to a regular dental routine.
Teaching your pet early in life to accept a regular dental program is the easiest way to keep plaque at bay. Use the following guidelines to tend to your pet’s teeth on an on-going basis:
- To get your pet accustomed to having something in his mouth, start with a piece of gauze or damp washcloth wrapped around your index finger. Use a gentle circular motion.
- When he is accustomed to this, advance to a soft, nylon toothbrush, a finger toothbrush, a dental sponge and Dental Cleanser, or Dental Clens® pads. Keep your dog’s temperament in mind when you choose what method to use.
- Use a toothpaste formulated especially for dogs, such as Drs. Foster & Smith's Enzymatic Toothpastes (item #35276 or #35277).
- Use Dental Clens® Pads to rid mouth folds of harmful bacteria.
Dental disease is one of the most common problems we see. Periodontal disease is the most commonly diagnosed disease in cats and dogs over the age of 3 years. Just as we can prevent many viral diseases by using vaccines, we can also prevent the majority of dental disease cases by following the easy steps described above.
Instructions: Hold pet's head steady with one hand. Gently wipe teeth and gums with pad. Use additional pads as needed until entire mouth has been cleaned.
