How to Take Care of Your Dog’s Teeth?

Modern dogs suffer from various dental problems more and more. If your pet’s teeth hygiene is wrong, its diet is inappropriate or it has some metabolic disease or genetic disposition, dental tartar and plaque can appear in its mouth.

Don’t play tug of war games in this time.
