Dog Teeth

my mom has a 13 year old dog that she has problems getting the back of his teeth cleaned and the vet gave her a 1800 number to call but she don't want to do the mail in order ( she wants to know what shes getting)so i was wondering if there was any thing she can do at home that would get the tarder off his back teeth hope someone could help

Brushing dog's teeth helps keep them clean. There are special dog toothbrushes and toothpaste at the pet store. The rubber ones that fit over the finger are more dog friendly.

Feeding only crunchy, dry food helps keep tartar scraped off teeth. Some brands of dog food are marketed as dental defense. Always give some crunchy food after feeding soft to help clean the teeth.

There are products like PlaqueOff, which is a gritty powder added to pet food and is supposed to help with plaque removal. If dog has tartar, this is best left for the vet to remove.
