    Default Teeth

    Hi all! Hope everyone is doing well. Yesterday while we were brushing Winston's teeth I noticed one of his teeth is starting to yellow. I know that it's build up but does anyone know how to get rid of it and how to prevent it from happening more???? Any help is appreciated, thanks!!

    Never surgically clean your bullies teeth unless dire emergency, too risky!
    Raw bones, never cooked or baked, help clean teeth and so does raw diet.

    ACV is magic in a bottle! Use the organic with 'the mother'...Walmart's carries
    Bragg's. Start with 1 tsp (so he gets use to taste) in drinking bowl, build up to
    1 TBSP daily. Honestly, for you & him...healthy & helpful in many ways If you
    use it for final rinse after bathing, can use the cheaper white vinegar.

    The final rinse off is to fill a plastic gallon pitcher with 2 cups white vinegar, fill
    with warm water, from neck back slowly rinse thru coat. Leave in, blot dry.
    Prevents stinky dog smell and longer between bath time & conditions skin & fur.

    Hi, regular teeth brushing is the best way to prevent plaque buildup on teeth, also their is a product you can buy at Petsmart, it is a green liquid that you add to the drinking water, it smells minty and is supposed to help remove tooth buildup, and make the breath fresh. You can find it in the section where you buy the dog toothpaste and toothbrushes. I take my two guys about every 3 or 4 months to the groomers to have their teeth brushed and scaled, the groomer there has done a course on teeth scaling, and she does a really good job, but I've been taking them there since they were 8 months old, and do it regularly, so there hasn't been any buildup. I like doing it there because they get their teeth cleaned and scaled without having to be put under anesthetic.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Thanks so much for the info! Yeah we have always brushed Winston's teeth but I guess we weren't doing it enough. I just don't want it to get worse! So I will be doing it a lot more now.

    Lola has had the whitest teeth, even the vet comments! but we never brush. she just chews nylabones and deer antlers CONSTANTLY. There is a blue rubbery nylabone that has nubs, very good at cleaning. But if your bully swallows objects, these rubbery ones may be a choking hazard. Lola always spits out the little shreds and small chunks she gets off, so i trust her with the rubbery ones. She was only using the powerful chewer nylabones for two years before that tho. (disclaimer may cause damage to teeth)
