Dog oral hygiene is really important but something that tends to get overlooked. As a result, many dogs are dealing with plaque on their teeth, which over time can lead to pain, gum disease or even heart disease. Many conventional dog dental treatments contain harsh chemicals, preservatives and artificial colors and flavors – stuff you really don’t want in your dog’s mouth. Fortunately there is a simple cleaning solution made from all natural ingredients that you can use to remove plaque from your dog’s teeth and keep it off.
The solution is made from one part hydrogen peroxide and one part aloe vera juice. I suggest keeping the solution in a spray bottle so that it’s easy to apply to your dog’s teeth. It’s a good idea to make enough to last for several weeks.
To apply the solution, spray enough on a piece of gauze to wet it, without over-saturating it. You don’t want it too wet, so that the solution is dripping in your dog’s mouth. Pull their gums back and gently but firmly rub the gauze over any affected areas, paying close attention to the molars where plaque tends to accumulate. Repeat on the other side. After using the treatment every day for 2 or 3 weeks, the plaque will start to come off on the gauze.
