QuestionI have just bought a dog. Does he need to have his teeth brushed? (B. Davids - New Mexico)

Answer

Not as silly a question as some may think. You can buy dental chews and toys which will perform this function for you. While it is not usually necessary to brush his teeth, there are many toothbrushes and toothpastes designed especially for dogs. There are also bad breath solutions for preventing bad breath.
