Humans regularly brush their teeth, so why don’t we brush our dogs’ teeth? August 6th is Fresh Breath Day. Canine dental care can be swept under the rug and forgotten very easily, especially if you and your dog have a busy schedule.

According to the American Veterinary Dental College, dogs have plaque build-up just like humans do. Many vets will recommend dog owner should brush their dog’s teeth every day. Here are simple other steps to take that can help make a big difference. Offer your dog treats and toys that benefit their teeth and can clean them a little. Brush their teeth once a week with pet-friendly toothpaste and a toothbrush. Schedule annual teeth cleaning at your vet. Or here at Dogtopia of Charlotte, we offer teeth cleaning service in our spa. To celebrate Fresh Breath Day our location will be offering 50% off teeth cleaning! We want your dog to return home with the freshest breath in town!
