If you ask any dog owner who cares about the environment, they would love to see dog park products like the Sutera in-ground dog waste containment system, which we are distributing, in their municipal parks. They want the best for the environment and for their dog.
When owners and their pets get home, they want to continue a good positive lifestyle by cleaning their dog’s teeth the proper way.
Get Comfortable with The Process
If you’re going to be cleaning your dog’s teeth and checking for gum disease every once in a while, you and your pet should be comfortable with the process. It’s always a good idea to take it slow at first. This is especially true for older dogs because they might be suffering from gum disease.
Start talking to your pet in that low voice they love or maybe even rubbing them behind the ears. If your pooch is especially sensitive to having his or her choppers looked at, you can try a little peanut butter on the tip of your finger.
Always remain calm. Remember your dog can pick up on your emotions so if you seem a little stressed out by the experience, they will too.
Check Out Your Vet Options
You should be as thorough when you’re checking out the options for your dog’s teeth as we were when we designed out dog park products such as the post mounted waste bin with pick-up bag dispenser. This particular product is made from powder coated, galvanized steel and is an excellent addition to any park on condo property.
Checking the options that you have with your veterinarian for cleaning your dog’s teeth is another good idea. However, you should be aware of the fact that most dogs need to be put under a general anesthetic to have this done properly.
This can be an issue for older dogs since it can weaken their working functions temporarily and they may require a longer recovery period.
Looking at Other Options
If your dog won’t let you brush his teeth under any circumstances, it might be time to consider some chew toys. Depending on the breed, you can pick up some sturdy toys at the local pet shop that will clean their teeth at the same time.
You’ll need to be careful about the chew toy you pick depending on your dog’s age. Younger dogs are fine with bones but older animals have more sensitive teeth. Whichever option you decide is best for you and your pet, having a good method to clean your dog’s teeth is just as important as going to a location with excellent dog park products like our dog waste bin and pick-up bag dispensers.
