  1. Thanks for these reminders. I admit to not being as diligent as I should be on their dental care, so this is a good push.

  2. No problem, SlimDoggy!

  3. This is so important, and I for one could use a reminder about what could happen if I didn’t brush Harley’s teeth. Harley eats a Greenie once a day, but I actually have been looking into something else (grain free) a little more natural. Loved this post, thanks for writing it.

  4. Thanks for sharing, Groovy Goldendoodles! You might want to try the HealthyMouth dental water additive since it is made with all natural ingredients and studies have proven that it is very effective in reducing plaque.

  5. Thank you for posting this! We definitely believe dental health is very important. I brush the girls teeth every day!

  6. That’s wonderful that you take the time to brush your dogs’ teeth every day, Lauren! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    Gosh I did not know this! I thought dry kibbles helped keep their teeth clean. I am going to check Indi’s teeth first thing in the morning!!!

    I always brush Sugar’s teeth but realize there are illnesses/diseases that are unavoidable … especially when a dog gets older. Great reminder post for me. Golden Woofs

    Good post. Thank you for sharing this important information. My dog came to us with a dead canine tooth and a terrible overall mouth so it’s been a priority to keep his teeth as healthy as possible. It’s not Cody’s favorite activity, but he puts up with it.

  11. Thank you for your kind words, Sharon. I am sure Cody will thank you in the end for keeping his teeth healthy.

    I brush my dogs teeth but we always have problems with the one on top in the very back. It’s definitely a good reminder for people; annual cleanings get all the tartar and plaque I haven’t been able to remove myself (which is a lot apparently even with daily brushing.) I’m going to look into the water additive; I had no idea those were available.

  13. Thanks for your comments, Jen. I found out about HealthyMouth dental water additive when I was doing the research for this blog post. I was really excited to find an all natural product that has received the Veterinary Oral Health Council Seal of Acceptance and that has been proven in studies to significantly decrease plaque in dogs and cats. Using a dental water additive is such an easy way to help improve the health of our pets’ mouths.

  14. So important, mom is always checking our teeth out! Great tips, thanks for sharing!

    Great post Dr. Baker, thank you for sharing it on the blog hop!! I have never heard of yearly dental cleanings for dogs! It has never been recommended where I live, in fact I’m the one who is asking my vet to do the cleanings as my dogs are getting older and the anesthesia factor is concerning to me.

    My dogs are fed raw and they eat chicken necks for breakfast, for the most part this really helps with keeping their teeth clean. I used to give them white bones stuffed with pumpkin but Delilah is such an enthusiastic chewer, that she has broken at least one tooth. She is scheduled for her cleaning and extraction next month.

    I’ve never been a big fan of greenies or milkbones, but the dental water interests me.

  16. Hi Jodi. Thanks for sharing. I found out about the HealthyMouth dental water additive when I was doing the research for this blog post and I am really interested in trying it, too!

  17. Great info. We always have our dogs’ and kitty’s teeth checked and cleaned if need any procedure under anesthetic.

  18. Thanks for your comments, 2 Brown Dawgs!

  19. Happy Thoughtless Thursday! Thanks for linking up. Dental health is super important for Ruckus. Daily brushings and dental chew for the win!
