Clean Teeth Can Save Your Dog’s Life!

Regular Brushing is Very Important to Lucy.

Did you know not brushing your dog’s teeth can cause lots of periodontal diseases that can shorten your pet’s life. Our time on earth is very limited so why shorten it by dental neglect.

Here’s why I think you should brush your Chi’s teeth:

  1. Regular brushing prevents plaque buildup.
  2. It’s cheaper to brush than pay for tooth extractions or cleanings.
  3. Your dog will live longer and be healthier.
  4. Cleaner and fresher breath is most welcome.

To be honest, I don’t really brush my teeth. My daddy used to try doing this task but I resisted.

Please remember to replace your toothbrush every six months. And don’t forget the gums. Germs can collect and they’re oogie. You might try some crunchy dental treats, too.

My vet recommends I have my teeth cleaned. My daddy is worried about taking me in since they will have to put me under to clean my teeth. But I’m sure he will do it soon so I can have a healthy happy mouth.

Trust me, I will not be pleased getting this procedure, but if I must, I must.

I’ve gathered a few new articles online for you to read. I’m sure you’ll enjoy them.
