Arm Your Dog Against The Effects Of Aging
Teeth

Dental problems are common in many of the smaller breeds, especially those with extremely short muzzles. Feed dogs hard kibble-it will help prevent periodontal problems. Manufacturers tout dog biscuits as promoting dental health, but with the exception of the research backing up the Pedigree® Dentabone(tm), we have found no rigorous scientific evidence that supports the use of dog biscuits for dental health.38

Brushing your dog's teeth works, but unless their dogs are on the showcircuit, most owners have neither the time nor the inclination. If your dogdoes have serious dental problems, you may be forced to feed moist or semimoist foods..
