How to Take Care of Your Dog's Teeth

How to Use smileSPRAY & dentalDUST

Are you one of those pet owners whose dog or cat loves having their teeth brushed? If so, go buy a lottery ticket, because you are really lucky.  At Green Dog Dental that is not usually the case.

Most cats and dogs, unless they’ve been trained to accept it since puppy or kitten-hood, don’t like having their teeth brushed. While most can learn to tolerate it, it’s generally not something that they look forward to.

This, coupled with our own busy schedules, is one of the reasons why pet oral care just is not where it should be. The vast majority of dogs and cats have some level of tartar on their teeth, and dental issues plague most pets by the time they are three years old.

Clean Your Pet's Teeth Without a Toothbrush

While we’re constantly telling pet parents that they need to brush their pet’s teeth, we know how difficult it can be. That’s why we’ve created ancillary products to help. Our smileSPRAY and dentalDUST are great supplements for brilliant teeth and great oral hygiene. They work in conjunction with the toothbrush and toothpaste to prevent tooth decay and all the problems that come with it.

How to Use smileSPRAY

smileSPRAY is sprayed onto a cotton ball or piece of gauze and applied directly to your dog’s teeth and gums. Most pets don’t mind the taste- it’s kind of herbal- and are much more tolerant of the gauze than of the toothbrush. SmileSPRAY works to freshen breath and cleans the teeth and gums to get rid of plaque before it becomes the much harder and nastier tartar.

How to Use dentalDUST

dentalDUST is even more hands off. Simply sprinkle it on your dog or cat’s food and let it work its magic! DentalDUST is an all-natural, human quality food topper that works to reduce the bacteria that form in your pet’s mouth, which not only helps to reduce dental issues and prevent the formation of tartar, but can also freshen your pet’s breath.

Keep Your Pet's Teeth and Gums Healthy

So, even if you are one of those lucky humans who can brush their cat or dog’s teeth without issue, you can still benefit from the supplementary products to help keep your pet’s mouth clean and healthy!

And if you are like the rest of us with pets who don’t like it, these products can help maintain doggy and kitty oral hygiene even when daily brushing doesn’t happen.
