That’s right, just as we brush our teeth daily, you should be brushing your pets’ teeth as well. You can buy pet-specific toothbrushes, which have a softer bristle, as well as pet-specific toothpaste. Don’t use human toothpaste as this can be harmful to pets if swallowed. Starting when your pet is young is a great way for them to adjust to the process, however, know that it’s better late than never, so even if your pet is older, you should consider brushing their teeth, to promote oral hygiene. They might not thank you for it, but the alternative of them having gum disease is far worse.
