Dental disease is the single most common disease found in dogs over the age of 3. In fact, studies show that more than 80% of dogs have some form of dental diseaseand about 66% have progressed to periodontal disease¹.
Pet parents have many options in how to provide preventative dental care for their dogs. However, no matter the technique, one factor remains absolutely critical: consistency.
No preventative can be effective without consistency. While manual tooth brushing is the most effective dental care method when practiced daily, it is ineffective if not done regularly. That's why the most important step in choosing a dental care routine for your dog is being honest with yourself about your ability to maintain consistency.
