Yesterday, Speedbump was the first one.
Daisy was next. She's usually the first one to be front and center. Why do some dogs look like they have demon eyes? Maybe it's the camera angle.
Of course, Charlie is still learning. To get them started, I let them lick the mint taste a bit and then they let me go in for the cleaning part while trying to lick the paste.
Violet get's her minty fresh teeth and breath.
Scrappy has horrible breath. Part of the reason for this is her food smells like dead fish and she likes to eat anything that smells bad. JP started giving her Mentos in the truck for treats so she's a natural for getting her teeth cleaned.
Getting a picture of Corrie getting her teeth brushed is like trying to photograph Big Foot but JP got this shot.
I really don't do this as regularly as I should. It should be done once a week. But, I do try to keep up with their tooth and gum care because we had one dog who died about 6 months after having to have her teeth cleaned at the vet's office. I'm not saying it was something they did but when that tooth got infected later on it went to her brain and we lost her. So I vowed that I would do all in my power to prevent this from happening again. If you've never tried it, it's easy and those "finger brushes" are the way I started. Make it play!! You'll be glad you did.
Bright smiles and minty breath blessings from the holler to you all.
