Your Labrador’s health is one of the most important things for you to take care of as a dog owner. Their teeth and mouth health play a major role in keeping their whole body healthy. Here are some tips on how to increase their dental health for a long, happy life. Dogs can have dental issues just like humans and taking care of their dental health is important for them to have a great life in your home.
Proper Eating for Your Labrador
With a nutritious diet, your dog will develop and improve the strength and health of their teeth. Making sure you have the proper dog food to help get rid of plaque, get the right amount of enzymes, and controlling tartar will ultimately make your dog happier and healthier.
Chew Toys Improve Dental Strength
Chew toys help keep your dog occupied and busy, but they also have dental advantages as well. Chew treats and toys help to remove plaque and tartar from your Labrador’s teeth. Also, they make specific non-edible chew toys like rubber bones that are meant for teeth cleaning with your Labrador. Whenever you have the chance, keep picking up some new chew toys for your Labrador. This is a great way to help your dog clean their own teeth.
Brushing Your Dog’s Teeth
Brushing your Labrador’s teeth on the regular will greatly improve their health. Make a schedule for yourself, so that you can have a consistent task of brushing their teeth. Starting them young is very important, so they can get accumulated with a consistent routine. Buy a toothbrush and toothpaste specific to your Labrador. The trick to brushing your Lab’s teeth is to approach them in a calm way and make sure that you’re brushing gently.
