Dental health is a very important part of your Frenchie's overall wellness and should not be overlooked. French Bulldogs are more prone to dental problems than some other breeds, so you need to keep your pup's teeth clean from the beginning to have a routine and make your Frenchie pup get used to it.
A yearly dental cleaning is highly recommended by your veterinarian, but there are also things you can do at home to help keep your Frenchie's teeth healthy and clean.
1. Feed Quality Food
Feeding a high-quality health food is the most important thing to do and the first step to keep your French Bulldog's teeth healthy. Nourishing the body means that teeth will grow stronger and your Frenchie's overall health with benefit greatly.
Avoid ingredients like grain, by-products and meals that are not only unhealthy but stick to your dog's teeth. Poor quality food will increase plaque and tartar build-up and keep your Frenchie's dental health and immune system functioning far below their ideal strength.
2. Brush your Frenchie's Teeth
Brushing your Frenchie's teeth is an effective way to prevent dental disease and tooth decay. You will have to train your pup from early start because they don't usually like the idea of brushing their teeth and you will need to start slowly.
There are toothbrush and toothpaste specially made for them, do not try to use human toothpaste because it is very toxic for them. Brushing every day is ideal but once or twice a week will provide major benefit.
3. Give them Femur Bones : Best dental Chews
The best dental chew you can give to your Frenchie is the Femur Bones that are sold on specialised pet stores. Frenchies love them and also is a way to keep them entertained while you are away. This bones prevent from destroy your furniture and keep them busy. But the most important thing is that Femur bones will keep your French Bulldog's teeth healthier and clean.
I have been using this femur bones for my French Bulldog for so many years and his teeth are perfect and healthy for his age and he is 10 years old already.
Make sure you buy the right kind of bone. I'm talking about the large femur and knucklebones from a cow which are practically impossible to swallow or chip.
Do not give them the leftovers of your meals or chicken.These are specially dangerous for them because they can choke with the small parts.
There are Filled Femur bones that they will love even more because they keep busy trying to eat the filling and there are a lot of kind flavors. You can buy them at Pet's at home or any Pet Store.
