Do you know almost 80 percent dogs suffer from dental problem by the time they are three year old? Dogs with teeth problem will not be able to chew their food well. This will result in stomach pain. Dogs’ teeth are full of bacteria from food. Regular brushing will get rid of those bacteria.

Products recommended for brushing dogs’ teeth

Dogs’ teeth care does not cost a lot of money. You need to spend approximately $20 a month for your dog’s teeth cleaning products. Try to purchase natural things. Dogs carry more germs than humans on their teeth. So please purchase new teeth cleaning supplies every month. I personally use Nylabone for my dog. It is great product. I recently also used OxGord and it was very good too. Brushing your dog’s teeth will also prevent bad breath.
