Animals, like humans, need to clean their teeth after every meal, which is not easy to cause diseases of teeth and gums. The habit of cleaning teeth is best developed from puppies and cats, which is easier to train and less likely to cause rejection and repulsion of animals.
There are toothbrushes and toothpaste for animals on the market, which can improve the effect and efficiency of brushing teeth. Attention should be paid to the non-use of toothpaste for human use, because the fluoride, foaming agent and xylitol contained in toothpaste may cause animal poisoning. When brushing teeth, the animal's lips are opened first, and the interface between the toothbrush and the gum is 45 degrees, and each tooth is taken as a unit to brush the teeth in a circle, and make sure that every face is brushed.
If the gauze is wrapped around the finger and pressed with water, the gauze will be fixed on the finger, which can replace the toothbrush, but the effect will be discounted. If there is no toothbrush at hand, or if the animal's mouth is too small to enter, it can be used as an alternative.
Animals also have special mouthwashes, but the way they use them is to dilute them and add them to the drinking water, and then drink them as the animals drink. Do not use human mouthwash instead, it will cause poisoning.

The use of friction to reduce the accumulation of toothscale, although the effect is limited, but it is the least likely to cause rejection of dogs and cats, can be regarded as a good way to assist. However, if animals have the habit of gorging when they eat, they should avoid giving them a mouthful of clean teeth or milk bones that can be swallowed so that they do not get stuck in the esophagus.
