To keep with the 'nurse' theme---
Dogs need their teeth cleaned just like humans.   Sometimes just providing them with raw meat bones to chew on does the trick and sometimes they need more help. Every dog is different, but keeping up a good dental tooth cleaning and check is imperative to good health.   

Part of your dog’s grooming time should include checking the teeth and gums and cleaning if necessary.

Things needed—
Toothbrush (manual or electric)
Toothpaste(optional-I don’t use it)
Scaler and pick   (look for dental equipment online)
Plaque remover commercial brand(be sure it doesn’t contain xylitol)
OR
Use a doggie herbal mouth product(purchased or homemade)

The procedure- 
Dip the toothbrush in the herbal mouth rinse(you can make your own—see below*) and brush the teeth with it.
Then I use the dental tools and scale the teeth of visible build up.  

Use a very wet wash cloth or cotton swabs (diluted with the herbal mouth rinse)  to wipe everything off.

Depending on the amount of plaque build-up determines the frequency I clean the teeth.


*herbal rinse    5 drops of grapefruit seed extract to 8 oz of filtered water

Dave is ready to have his teeth scaled, he likes to lie down for this procedure.

Tools of the trade


some plaque build-up starting

scaling

now clean

and now BITEYFACE ready!

  4. Great block. A wonderful job Jeanette and Jane. Saxon was my therapy boy and now Basil is. It is a wonderful feeling. Also Dave, you are a sport. I do have the tools to clean my dog's teeth, but the rinse recipe will now be a staple. I assume you make it fresh for every cleaning. Thanks for all our quilters do for rescue!

  7. The tooth fairy packed her bags and left after the first set then! Mine are all good but I like the scalers with the flat top as its canines that get a bitty mucky here since the raw marrow bones got hard to get... :O) XXXX
