So, the best way to keep your dogs’ dental health at its best is by using natural solutions. There are many ways by which you can remove plaque or tartar from your dog's teeth for example, by using toys, tools or even dental sticks for dogs.

2.Soft and Hard Chews

Soft Dental Treats For Senior Dogs

If you have a senior dog we can understand how hard it must be to find the perfect chews. Senior dogs' chews are really difficult to source as they need to be soft, healthy and flavorful and have the right consistency and texture. If  you’re starting preventive care for your dog, you have to make sure that treats and any other food you feed is soft and chewable. Dogsee Chews Puffy bars are specially created to suit your senior dogs needs as they are perfect for older dogs that have low teeth strength and have difficulty chewing.

The basic rule while looking for the perfect dental chews for your doggo is finding a size that is complementary to your dog. This is to ensure that the chew does not pose a choking hazard for your dog.The next most important thing is to make sure that they stay hard long enough. This will help keep your dog occupied for longer and make sure the chew bars get to each nook and cranny to get rid of any unwanted tartar or plaque build-up. Himalayan hard chews are made with dried Yak milk (essentially cheese) which makes it the best tartar remover for dogs who love cheese.

3. Agility Toys

Agility toys help your pup achieve good dental health as your dog spends a good amount of time pulling and chewing on them. The chewing results in getting their teeth scrubbed and therefore prevents the development of plaque and tartar. It also promotes healthy breath as your dog airs out his mouth.

4. Fruits and Veggies

Just like the dentists advise us to avoid candy, dogs too need to pay attention to what they chew to attain good dental health. So, keeping a check on the number of treats you give your dog may be a good idea. Before you attempt to figure out how to clean your dog's teeth with fruit, let us put your mind at ease. Just like hard treats, crisp fruits and vegetables  like carrots, beetroots, and celery help dogs chew away the plaque and tartar build up. Many fruits and vegetables are high in vitamin C which provides protection to  gums and other tissues from the risk of bacterial infections. Dogsee Chew’s frozen veggie and fruit treats are proven to be a big hit with parents who want more than just natural dental sticks for dogs.

5. Hard Dental Bars

Long-Lasting Dental Chews for Small Dogs

They possess the perfect amount of vitamins and other nutrients that are essential for your dog's overall health.
