Did you know your vet recommends that you actually brush your dog’s teeth? Part of keeping your pet happy and healthy is also keeping your pet’s mouth healthy. You veterinarian will usually have some free samples of tasty dog tooth paste for you to try, it’s meat flavored. Dogs like meat, they like the flavor of meat toothpaste, which is both helpful and hurtful. Although your dog will not fight as much when you attempt to brush their teeth, they tend to lick to try and get the flavor. But as with any dog, they more you do something, the less sensitive your dog will become to it.
