Pearly Whites

Is there anything cuter than a puppy? Yes. A clean puppy!

Golden RetrieverTo prevent gum disease and tooth decay, make tooth care part of your puppy's grooming routine. Brush your pup's teeth with a small toothbrush and doggie toothpaste (don't use human toothpaste). Once or twice a week is usually sufficient, although daily brushing is best, especially as your pup grows older. The abrasive chewing action that comes from eating hard biscuits and gnawing on dental chew toys will help reduce tartar buildup. Begin brushing when your puppy is young. You can start by gently wiping the pup's teeth with a small pad of gauze. Work up to using a toothbrush. Pet-supply stores also carry finger brushes (fit over the tip of your finger).

Brushing your dog's teeth is a very important part of his daily grooming. I brush my dog's teeth with a two-sided dog tooth brush and a special peanut butter flavored toothpaste.
