Many vets recommend that you brush your pet's teeth, daily, just as we brush our own.

Dog owners can select from various pet toothbrushes and "enzymatic" toothpastes.

Pets that will not tolerate tooth brushing can be given treats with special textures to remove plaque and tartar, or plaque-fighting ingredients. There are other products including wipes and gels which can be placed on the teeth and gums to kill bacteria.
