How kissable is your dog? Does he have bad breath? Are his teeth stained?
Well, if you do not brush your dog's teeth it is very likely that your dog has "doggy" breath, yellow teeth and/or swollen gums.
I'm guilty of not brushing their teeth on a regular basis. I can never get them to sit still. However, healthy teeth and gums are important for biting and chewing, and even more important for your dog's overall good health. Tooth and gum disease can lead to serious health problems, including infection, kidney problems and heart disease!
The American Animal Hospital Association says brushing your dog's teeth could add as much as five years to his life.
So, in honor of February being pet dental month, I'm going to try to get on it and make sure my dogs have healthy teeth.
