Directions: To introduce your dog to toothpaste, apply a small amount onto your finger and allow pet to taste. Next, apply a small amount onto the toothbrush bristles. Then, gently pull the lips and cheeks up. Begin brushing with short, back-and-forth strokes at the gum line. Brush only a few teeth the first time. Brush can be held at any angle to have bristles in contact with the petâs teeth. Give a lot of praise during this process. When using the Plaque Scraper end of the brush, grasp in a comfortable manner, like holding a pen. Care should be taken to ensure that the scraping is a gentle, controlled motion. Avoid sudden and jerking movements that could damage your petâs gums. To remove plaque deposits from teeth, always use a light brushing stroke with the flat side of the scraper in contact with the tooth surface. Excess pressure will not improve scaling action, but may cause pain to the pet. Pull the lip up, gently scrape along the edge of the gum line and keep as flat as possible, tooth is scraped from gum line downward, so that damage isnât caused to the gum. Plaque begins to grow at the edge of the gum line so use gentle pressure to help remove. Do not place the scraper under the gum line. Scrape only a few teeth the first time. Slight bleeding along the gum line is normal. The scraper will only remove small pieces of plaque at a time, do not expect plaque to come off in a large piece; the scraper removes thin layers of soft plaque. Ensure that any plaque removed is wiped away and not swallowed by the pet. Offer your pet some water after cleaning the teeth. If the gums bleed excessively, see your veterinarian. Do not use scraper end of brush if gums are inflamed or infected.
