Tooth brushing recommendations

As with humans, it is recommended to brush your dog/cat’s teeth at least once a day to ensure the best oral health and hygiene. In difficult pets, a reduced frequency to two to three times a week should be attempted, but must be done at least once a week.

Teeth should be brushed with an up-and-down motion, paying particular attention to the gum line. Human toothpaste are not safe to be swallowed by pets. Pet friendly toothpaste, such as Pet Dent, should be used. Kyron also included a pet friendly toothbrush and finger-brush in their Pet Dent range, but any small, soft toothbrush can be used.
