Brushing your small dog's teeth can be challenging enough but getting to his back teeth is even more difficult. With the right motivation and the right toothpaste, you can get your small dog to open wide enough to get those back teeth nice and clean. Maintaining your small dog’s oral health is important for his overall health. Be sure you are brushing all of his teeth, not just the ones up front that are easy to reach, with the toothbrush and some doggie toothpaste. Pry the little guy's mouth open just wide enough to get toothbrush back there and brush those back teeth to keep his mouth, gums and breath healthy.
If your little dog is not used to teeth brushing you may need to practice on the front teeth, which are easy to get to before you get to the back teeth. Once your little dog understands this routine and is used to the rewards after brushing, he should get used to back teeth brushing pretty quickly and easily. Be sure to reward him with a nice tasty treat after every teeth brushing
