The best way is to brush your pet’s teeth 4-6 times per week with any toothpaste that is made specifically for dogs and cats. We also recommend products and dental chews that contain parsley, coconut oil, or kelp. These ingredients help reduce bacteria, tartar, and plaque. Do not use human toothpaste, as it could be harmful to your pet. The best way to minimize the amount of plaque buildup is to keep up with your pet’s non-anesthetic dental cleanings 2-3 times a year.
