Australian Labradoodle Dental Care

Your Australian Labradoodle’s Teeth

Australian Labradoodle puppies and dogs need regular dental care. Buildup of tartar can cause inflamed, swollen gums and secondary infection that can lead to serious health problems. Australian Labradoodle dogs, one to three years old, should have their teeth brushed once a week. Australian Labradoodles over three years old should have their teeth brushed three times a week. It is a good idea to start your Australian Labradoodle puppy on a once a week brushing plan as this gets them used to brushing for the long term.

Use a toothbrush that is made especially for dogs. They have long handles which allow you to brush the dog’s back teeth. Never use human toothpaste, use an enzyme toothpaste specifically made for your dog.

There are specially treated dental cleaning pads which can be wiped over the surface of the dog’s teeth. The enzymes in the pad do the cleaning. You can also purchase special toothbrushes that fit over your finger to make brushing easier.

Websites we like for purchasing dental products: http://www.petedge.com and http://www.revivalanimal.com – also, your veterinarian’s office may carry the enzyme toothpaste.
