Do I really need to clean my dog's teeth?

According to PetMD, aiming for a thorough brushing two to three times per week should be plenty to keep your dog's teeth clean and free of plaque and tartar buildup. And, just like you wouldn't spend an hour brushing your teeth, there's no need to spend too much time on your dog's oral hygiene routine.

Is it bad if my dog's teeth are yellow?

Yellow or brown teeth If you notice yellow or brown stains on your pet's teeth, especially around the gums, there's a good chance this is dental plaque. Brushing your pet's teeth with special toothpaste and feeding them dental treats can help prevent the build-up of plaque.

Why are my dogs teeth rotting?

A dog's teeth falling out typically happens for two reasons: trauma to the area or periodontitis. Plaque buildup eventually leads to swollen gums (gingivitis) and then later lead to periodontitis, where the gums will pull away from the teeth, exposing them to bacteria and later tooth loss and decay.

What order do dogs lose their teeth?

At approximately 8 weeks, the puppy's teeth start falling out as the adult teeth push the milk ones out of the way. The sequence of the teeth's fall is: first are the incisors around 12 to 16 weeks of the puppy's age; then the canine teeth will fall out around 16 weeks and lastly, the pre-molars around 24 weeks.
