Post Dental Care For Your Pet
Oravet - given daily Oravet
is a newer product used to help prevent plaque from building up! It comes as a chew meant to clean & protect. The chewing itself helps scrub away plaque while the chew forms a protective barrier against the bacteria that lead to plaque and tartar buildup and fights bad breath. Right now this product is only available for dogs. It can be used daily!
What else besides brushing can you do to help your pet's teeth?
Brushing your dog or cat’s teeth everyday
is going to be the most effective way to keep your dog or cat's teeth healthy for longer! Now that they have been professionally cleaned (and problem teeth removed) plaque and tartar is
minimal, so it is the BEST time to start this process!
Making teeth brushing a positive experience is key! Brushing teeth before breakfast or dinner can help them associate it with getting fed, making it a positive and fun experience.
by lifting their lip and giving treats and praise for allowing you to do so! Take baby steps by first putting your index finger in gauze or a toothbrush and letting him/her taste the toothpaste.
We would love you to be successful at this. If you would like a demonstration please ask one of our veterinary technicians!
