Oral Health Home Care


  • Choose a quiet time and place to start the brushing.
  • If your dog is small enough, hold your dog securely in your lap, with its head facing away from you. If your dog is larger, you should sit on a chair and have your dog sit beside you so that you can comfortably handle the mouth and teeth.
  • Start by rubbing your finger or a soft cloth over the outer surfaces of your dog's teeth, using a back-and-forth motion. Be careful to stay on the outside surfaces of the teeth to avoid being bitten by accident.
  • For the first few lessons, it is a good idea to only rub the cloth along a few teeth rather than the whole mouth, especially if your pet is unsure or nervous about the process.
  • Once the dog is comfortable with you rubbing the teeth, let him or her taste a little bit of toothpaste from your finger.
  • Once your dog has accepted the taste of the toothpaste, apply a small amount to the cloth and rub it over the teeth.
  • Once your dog is completely used to you rubbing the teeth with a cloth, it is time to start using a toothbrush.
