I’m a very bunny pup.
Ooof, not good!
It’s selfie time.
The ‘Toofers’ is a popular community with over 70.2k followers. They encourage all users to post pictures of their dog’s ‘beautiful smile, silly snarl, or adorable snaggle tooth.’
There is a clear message behind the silliness, though – to encourage owners to take care of their pet’s teeth. After all, just like ours, they need a little loving care to keep them healthy and looking beautiful, and you can’t expect your furry friend to brush and floss his own teeth, can you?
Help! I’m a little stuck…
Who’s a pretty boy then? I am!
You can’t resist my charms.
According to Hill’s Pet Nutrition, dog owners can keep their dog’s teeth in tip-top condition by knowing what to look out for. Dogs have 42 teeth on average, and they need to be kept clean without any visible tartar or plaque buildup. Any jagged or broken teeth could cause serious problems for your canine friend.
Their tongue needs to be moist and without signs of lumps or other damage, and their gums should be salmon pink – although some dogs naturally have black gums making it a little trickier to spot any problems with their health.
I’m not impressed!
Movie and chill.
While your dog certainly can’t clean his own teeth, there’s no reason you can’t give him a helping hand. Just make sure to use toothpaste that is specifically designed for dogs. Additionally, there are some chew toys and treats available that can also be used to help clean his teeth and keep bacteria at bay. However, you should also ensure that you are regularly taking your pet to the vet for a check-up and a deep cleaning procedure.
I’m the funniest dog, you know.
Tough day at the office.
Just a cute woodland creature.
Consult the vet if you notice that your dog has unusual lumps in his mouth, inflamed gums, or particularly bad breath.
