Do you brush your dogs teeth?
 
To be honest, I've never brushed my dogs teeth, and I know some people to think that is awful, but why should I when my dogs are literally white...

I give my dogs raw meaty bones to keep their teeth white, but I wondered...could brushing them add to the cleanliness? Perhaps if possible flossing??

I mean we do it to our teeth...why not theirs? And I wondered are there natural way to clean our teeth like raw meaty bones?

If they are clean (make sure you check the back ones) I see no reason to do it. It costs money, is time consuming, and they generally hate it.

I brush all but Dakota's because his are so far gone (VERY bad) that I am afraid that I might cause an infection to spread through his body. I TRY to do it every other day, but it doesn't always happen.
