Do you brush your dog’s teeth regularly? Have you heard that you should but don’t how to get started? The CET Oral Hygiene Kit is a great place to start. The kit contains a dual headed toothbrush, a fingerbrush and a tube of toothpaste.
Why should you brush your dog’s teeth? Because proper dental care can help improve your dog’s overall health. Bad teeth can lead to a number of different health problems. They can seed your dog’s bloodstream with bacteria, causing infection and even heart disease. Bad teeth are also painful for your dog. Regular brushing can help control the plaque and tartar that contributes to dental disease. It can help keep your dog’s teeth clean and white, keep his gums healthy and keep his breath smelling fresh.
What’s special about the CET Oral Hygiene Kit? The CET Oral Hygiene Kit contains a tube of toothpaste made specifically for your dog. Did you know you shouldn’t use your own toothpaste to brush your dog’s teeth? That’s because your toothpaste can actually upset your dog’s digestive system. But the toothpaste in the kit is designed to be used on dogs. It is available in several different flavors, including poultry and beef. I know that sounds kind of disgusting but trust me, your dog will love it.
Besides the toothpaste, the kit also contains a toothbrush with heads on both sides. The bristles are soft so they won’t hurt your dog’s mouth or gums. In addition, there is a finger brush included in the kit. This is a brush that you can slip over your finger and use to brush your dog’s teeth. Personally, I find the finger brush easiest to use.
If your dog is new to having his teeth brushed, you should proceed slowly, allowing him to get used to each step along the way before you move on to the next step. Start by simply using your finger to rub his teeth and gums until he is comfortable with you doing this. Then move on to placing the toothbrush on the teeth and gums. Don’t try to move the brush initially. Just let your dog get used to having it in his mouth. Once he’s used to this, you can start actually brushing the teeth in a circular motion. Finally, add the toothpaste.
The CET Oral Hygiene Kit contains everything you will need to start a tooth brushing routine for your dog. It’s a good choice if you have a puppy or young dog and wish to start regularly brushing. If your dog is more mature, see your veterinarian for an examination before you begin brushing your dog’s teeth. If your dog has bad teeth, they may need to be dealt with before your begin brushing. Otherwise, you may cause your dog unnecessary pain.
