Tell me where all of you are at with dental care for your dogs, okay? I'm trying to do all I can to be the best "mom" for my dog Rusty. And I'm trying to learn all I can about taking good care of his health. I've had several dogs in my life and treated them very well, gave them good care, etc. But I pretty much did it in the "average" sort of way.... you know ---bought their kibble at the grocery store, took them to vet vet when they were sick, tried to keep fleas and other gross things off of and out of their bodies. But this time with Rusty I'm really trying to become better educated on everything where dogs are concerned. And form what I've read, and from what the vets say, dental care is a big thing that sort of gets forgotten about by the average dog owner. So I'd like to know...... how do all of you go about that doing that? I mean, is yearly cleanings and teeth cleaning chewies enough, or do you actually brush your dogs teeth on any routine sort of basis? I'm just curious if people really do that with their dogs. I see all of the supplies for it at the stores, but haven't attempted it yet. And is a professional cleaning once a year at the vets a good thing? I've been thinking since Rusty is around 1 year now I should think about it sometime soon. But I also don't want to stress him out until it's necessary.
