Keeping your dog clean can be a challenge. Accidents happen, and if your dog is sick, you may have to clean your dog more often. However, there are some easy tips you can follow to clean your dog’s teeth and prevent tartar buildup.
Dog dental care involves brushing your dog’s teeth, rawhide chews, and chew toys. This helps to prevent tartar buildup, and will prevent cavities and gum disease. However, brushing your dog’s teeth alone is not enough to keep his mouth clean.
It is also important to keep your dog’s ears clean. This can prevent the buildup of bacteria, which can lead to ear infections. It is also important to check your dog’s ears for inflammation and pain. If your dog has a chronic ear infection, he may have yeast in his ears.
Dogs’ genitals are also very sensitive, so you should watch closely for any signs of infection. Some dogs may lick their genitals too much, and this can lead to swelling and pain.
If your dog vomits, you can wipe it up with a wet sponge or trash bag. If the vomit is particularly bad, you can use Febreeze to remove the odor. This may not be as thorough as other methods, but it will at least eliminate the smell.
You may be surprised to learn that vinegar is also a great odor remover. Vinegar is a natural deodorizer, and can help to remove the odor from a dog’s pee stain. Using a small amount of vinegar in a bowl of water is a simple, safe way to clean your dog’s urine. It can also help to neutralize the stain.
