We interviewed several of our WMVH team members to find out what they do to keep their pet's teeth healthy. Here's what they had to say:
Heather: "I use the OralDent Cleansing Solution on my dog's teeth, usually every day."
Rachel: "My dogs and cat eat Science Diet Healthy Advantage Oral. They also receive regular professional dental cleanings. I've been trying to brush my dogs' teeth daily, but it's been difficult for me to be consistent."
Cindy: "Sylus gets his teeth brushed every night! He loves it!" (Watch his video!)
Dr. Richards: "My dog, Lulu, doesn't tolerate a tooth brush, so she eats Science Diet T/D as 30% of her daily diet and a CET Veggident chew weekly. Lulu also has a professional dental cleaning under anesthesia every 6-12 months.
Alicia: "I brush my dog's teeth every other day."
Laura: "One of my cats, Sam, doesn't have any teeth, after suffering from a painful dental condition called stomatitis. Dr. Richards helped him throughout that disease process for several years, but ultimately removing his teeth was the best solution. Sam's no worse for wear, though, and still prefers eating dry food despite my attempts to move him to a canned food only diet. My other three cats receive regular professional dental cleanings."
Mary: "My dog and all of my cats get their teeth brushed three times a week."
Lisa: "I check my cat's teeth regularly and so far they have healthy teeth. If necessary, they would have professional dental cleanings."
