- Take your pet to the veterinarian for a dental exam. Don’t wait for his annual checkup if you suspect a problem.
- Begin a dental care regimen at home. Your veterinarian can suggest steps that may include brushing your pet's teeth.
- Schedule regular veterinary checkups.
Pet product companies are coming up with new options that help owners with their pets' dental care. For example TropiClean has recently launched four products that fight periodontal disease at home without brushing. These products are a tooth get, water additive, dental treats and mouth spritz. They are all veterinarian recommended and approved and available in many pet stores. Learn more about their Fresh Breath made easy products at the TropiClean website.
