How do I stop my dogs teeth going yellow? A Complete Guide

What brush should I use to brush my dog’s teeth?

Rather than using the guest toothbrush that may be lying around your house, invest in a doggy toothbrush that’s designed to reach the different angles of your pet’s teeth.

Pet toothbrushes are typically softer than your own, so they won’t irritate or damage your furry friend’s sensitive gums. This likely makes the experience better for both you and your dog. It also can help eliminate painful bleeding that can occur when a stiff-bristled human brush is used.

Many common dog toothbrushes are double-headed and sport a long 9-inch handle that will reach all the angles of your dog’s teeth. This long handle is also critical if you have a larger breed of dog, it can be difficult to reach those back teeth!

The double-heads are typically two different sizes, which helps you brush away tarter no matter the size of your dog’s mouth.

Pro-tip: If you own more than one dog, use a different brush for each pet. Using the same brush could result in spreading germs or infection if one of your dogs is sick.

Should I use toothpaste on my dog’s teeth?

Never use the same toothpaste you use for yourself to brush your dog’s teeth — we are taught at a young age to spit out toothpaste, so we don’t swallow non-edible ingredients, like fluoride.

But since your dog doesn’t know how to spit out toothpaste, they’ll end up swallowing ingredients that can be toxic for them.

Luckily, there is doggy toothpaste that is safe and effective to use during your pet’s tooth brushing routine. Use the toothpaste as recommended by the manufacturer.

They even come in flavors that are typically tasty to your dog — like poultry or peanut flavor — which could help make brushing your dog’s teeth that much easier.
