February is National Pet Dental Health month.  According to many veterinary sources, poor dental health is a major problem for canines and should not be overlooked. If you’ve never brushed your dog’s teeth or you have, but it’s a struggle, here are some tips.  Try a chicken-flavored toothpaste. The flavor is enjoyable for pets and they’ll likely be eager for the brushing process. Before starting to brush, allow your dog to become associated with the brush and make sure your dog is in a comfortable, quiet setting so that they don’t get distracted or over-stimulated. And of course, reassure your pet through the process with praise, which will hopefully make them enjoy it.
