Dogs need a regular teeth brushing
If you have the patience, your dog will benefit from daily tooth brushing.
If you are like most people, you probably won't be able to do this. If you can at least brush his or her teeth a few times a week that is much better than no brushing at all.
Regular brushing helps to remove plaque buildup that can cause other health issues in dogs...
If you can not brush your dog's teeth on a regular schedule, studies have shown that giving him something to chew on can provide similar dental benefits.
The act of chewing on a nylon bone or certain other types of chew toys can help clean off plaque buildup which can help prevent periodontal disease.
