#11 Forgetting Dental Hygiene
Just like us humans, dogs require regular dental hygiene too. There are products available in the market, such as doggy toothbrushes and toothpastes, that are made specially for canine teeth.
Do make at least yearly visits to the vet to get the dog’s teeth checked. Build-up of bacteria in the mouth can result in plaque and weaken teeth, even causing them to fall off.
Washing their chew toys regularly should be a routinal activity to avoid germs from entering the pet’s mouth. Bad oral health can be common precedents to kidney infections and heart valve problems in dogs.
