So after much research, we have come up with the best solutions for not only our dog but your homemade toothpaste recipes as well.  This is not a difficult task as you would think.

Dental hygiene is just as important for your fur babies as it is for you. 

Routine dental check-ups are important to prevent loss of teeth, periodontal disease, bad breath,  and dental care for your dog. They can also prevent any organ damage done by plaque flaking off the teeth and getting into the bloodstream and traveling to organs. 

If you feel like giving your dog dental treats, go ahead, however, please try and either make your own homemade dental treats for dogs or use one that comes recommended by your veterinarian.

Your dog is going to love his teeth being clean and you will love being able to help him/her stay healthy.
