How should you brush your pet’s teeth?
Has your veterinary team recommended that you brush your pet’s teeth? You should know that it is never too late to start providing this basic dental care, regardless of your pet’s age. To ensure success, you will need to follow the proper steps when introducing your pet to this unfamiliar procedure.
In gentle stages, you will teach him to allow you to brush his teeth, and in the long run he will come to enjoy these daily sessions. Once you have acquired the right supplies – a suitable toothbrush as well as toothpaste in a flavour that your pet enjoys – you are ready to begin the training process.
Don’t rush the process: take as much time as your pet needs, and avoid punishing him if he does not progress as fast as you would like. If you run into problems, contact your veterinary team for help.
You can consult and print at home our teeth brushing training and desensitization sheet by following the steps described:

Please note: Each step requires 3 to 5 sessions over the course of a day or several days. This will ensure that your pet has properly assimilated your teachings.
