I have been getting my dog's teeth cleaned every month. Canine care has a monthly maintenance program. A friend told me that this would wear away the tooth's enamel. Does anyone know if this is true? I figure that for $20 a month I can keep my dog's teeth from ever getting tartar, but maybe the risks outweigh the benefits?

I'm so bad at this. My goal is to try and brush my dogs teeth daily.

It's a good idea to brush daily. And annual cleaning is also good but I highly recommend using a vet who doesn't anaesthetize.

This is very important information that pet owner's should heed to. Brushing their teeth not only helps to prevent tooth loss, but it also helps prevent bacterial infections, like the article states, causing damage to the heart, liver, and kidneys. We brush our dogs' and cats" teeth 2-3 times a week, and it definitely pays off in more ways than one. They only need their teeth cleaned once every several years. It's well worth the time you invest in weekly brushings.

My vet just gave my dog a dental vaccine that is suppose to help reduce the amount of tarter and plaque buildup. If your dog has bad teeth too, you might want to ask your vet about it.

great article.I started my aussie pup with gauze pads and now we have moved on to the finger tooth brush. she is a little over a year now and all i have to do is say want to brush your teeth and she gets all excited and sits there waiting for me to put the toothpaste on the toothbrush. Course she does get a small treat and lots of praise afterwards so i dont know if she likes her teeth brushed or the treat and loves afterwards!
