How can I make a real difference in my dog’s oral hygiene?
The gold standard for dental home care is regular and effective tooth brushing. The mechanical action of the bristles help to disrupt the soft plaque that forms on the teeth before it can turn into hard tartar.
Human toothpastes should never be used, because they contain detergents and fluoride that the dog should not swallow – and most dogs don’t spit well. Toothpastes made specifically for pets are safe to be ingested, and with the effect of a dual enzyme system, provides additional action against the bacteria in plaque.
Below are some products that Virbac has developed to provide a selection of choices to suit your dog’s needs. Regular use of an appropriate toothpaste and brush can be one part of a complete dental care program that will include examinations and professional care from your veterinarian. If you have questions about any of these products, be sure to talk with your veterinarian. As with any product, always listen to your veterinarian’s instructions and read the product label
