You may not think it or realize it, but even our animals need to be well taken care of and carefully groomed. Hygiene is very important for all, including animals. I know that before I owned my first animal I had no idea he needed to have his teeth brushed. We all knew he had bad breath, but we thought that was just the way it was with dogs. It turns out that just as healthy teeth are an important factor in our health, so it is with our dogs. It is recommended that you start brushing your dog’s teeth when they are a puppy, so that they not only get used to it, but actually begin to like it. Their teeth should be brushed a minimum of three times a week (at least it’s less than our 2-3 times a day), and will go a long way toward ensuring maximum dental health!
