How kissable is your dog? Does he have bad breath? Are his teeth stained?
Well, if you do not brush your dog's teeth it is very likely that your dog has "doggy" breath, stained yellow teeth and/or swollen gums.
If you brush you dog's teeth, I congratulate you. You are in the top 20% of pet owners in the country.
However, if you do not brush your dog's teeth, you are making a big mistake...
Healthy teeth and gums are important for biting and chewing, and even more important for your dog's overall good health. Tooth and gum disease can lead to serious health problems, including infection, kidney problems and heart disease!
Brushing your dog's teeth makes a world of difference. In fact, the American Animal Hospital Association says brushing your dog's teeth could add as much as five years to his life.
So if that's not something you are already doing, you really must start. You should brush your dog's teeth at least three times a week.
Here are some simple recommendations to get started:
Like with humans you must pick a good quality toothbrush. We've tested a lot of different dental care products and I recommend the Kissable Toothbrush from the Cain & Able dental collection. This really is a great brush - especially for those of you who are new to this whole "doggy tooth brushing" thing.
Unlike other toothbrushes, this brush has a unique three-sided design that cleans all three sides of the tooth at once, which makes the process quicker and a whole lot easier. The brush also has a combination of soft and firm bristles that work together to massage your dog's gums while cleaning the teeth.
Just take a look at the unique design of this brush. This is a great toothbrush, especially for beginners, because it lets you brush your dog's teeth in a minute or less. And remember, not only will tooth brushing help freshen your pup's "kisser," it will also put him on the path to a longer, healthier life.
One of the PetPlace veterinarians, Dr. Karin Szust, tried this Kissable Toothbrush on her dog, Nena and Nena didn't mind a bit. She even liked the taste of the vanilla toothpaste. And right after the brushing, Karin gave her darling dog a great big kiss!
Based on our positive experience, we have arranged with PetProductAdvisor.com to make this 3-sided Cain & Able Kissable Toothbrush plus a tube of their all-natural vanilla flavored toothpaste available to you for just $11.99.

I hope this helps you.
