Baking soda is a great product to use to eliminate bacteria and clean problem areas on your dog’s teeth. Making a baking soda toothpaste for your small dog is very simple and easy to do.
Brushing your dog's teeth is important for his overall health. Small dogs have small faces, which may cause dental problems to begin with. Your small dog’s oral health is going to be closely tied to his overall health. Be sure you're brushing your dog's teeth and maintaining his overall health so he does not develop periodontal disease, causing harm in his tiny mouth and throughout his little body. Baking soda is a natural cleaner that is used to whiten, clean, and deodorize your dog's mouth, teeth, and gums. Baking soda is also great for killing bacteria along the gumline and between the teeth. Brushing with baking soda helps prevent oral health troubles.
Baking soda does not taste all that great. So your little guy might be a bit apprehensive about having his teeth brushed with baking soda. If your dog is used to having his teeth brushed already, you might begin adding baking soda to his toothpaste a little at a time. Over time, you can decrease the amount of toothpaste and increase the amount of baking soda until you are using baking soda every time. For the first few sessions make them short and simple, and always reward your little guy for tolerance and patience.
Give your small dog a big healthy smile with the power of water and baking soda together. His big pearly whites will be healthy and clean, and brushing will support his overall health and give him a barking good smile.
