Tooth Decay and Gum Disease
This is mainly due to improper dental hygiene and lack of kibble treats to your dog’s diet. One way of preventing this is to brush your dog’s teeth everyday and buy him kibble treats that can remove plaque and keep his breath fresh. You can buy kibble treats at Golden 3 Pet Supplies and Grooming Station at Evia Lifestyle Center.
