Dental Care Guide for Pets

Brush your pet's teeth

Although brushing your pet's teeth may be a difficult task, doing so can help prevent tartar and plaque buildup, which over time could lead to periodontal disease. For many pets, especially small dog breeds, periodontal disease is a common problem. However, brushing your pet's teeth with the C.E.T. Oral Hygiene Kit for Dogs and Cats can help prevent dental diseases and reduce the likelihood of costly veterinarian bills for oral surgery.

Maintain your pet's oral health

Brushing is the most effective way to keep your pet's teeth and oral health at its best; however, there are additional products you can use. For especially finicky pets, consider an alternative to brushing. You can also kill bacteria that causes bad breath by adding our Be Fresh Dental Care Solution to your pet's drinking water. And if you've noticed a bad odor coming from your dog's breath, try our 1-800-PetMeds Breath Refresher. Each chewable tablet contains a minty flavor and parsley oil helps to calm your pet's digestive system. However, if your dog's bad breath continues, you may also want to consult your veterinarian, as this could be a symptom of an oral disease.

Use dental treats as a reward

Next time you reach for a treat to give your pet, why not try a dental treat instead? Pets love the taste and chewy textures of Greenies Dental Chews and C.E.T. Oral Hygiene Chews. These treats help remove plaque and tartar buildup, but your pet will be too busy chewing away to notice.

Max's Tip

Routine teeth cleanings should be performed at your veterinarian's office to help remove plaque and tartar buildup.
