This video demonstrates how to brush a dog's teeth using doggie toothpaste and a battery operated toothbrush. Ideally, a dog's teeth should be brushed on a daily basis to prevent gingivitis and periodontal disease. For young dogs, it is best to start after the adult teeth have erupted. If a dog already has periodontal disease and calculus, start brushing after the teeth have been professionally cleaned. The gums may bleed a bit during the first few brushing sessions if the dog already has gingivitis; however, the bleeding should stop after several sessions. Daily toothbrushing is the "gold standard" for dental care in dogs just as it is in people. For more information about dental care for dogs and cats, see the website of the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC), http://www.vohc.org/history.htm. At this site, you can also find a list of products approved by the VOHC and proven to be helpful in prevention of dental disease in dogs and cats.
