my dog has rotten teeth what can I do besides the vet?

I am 14 years old and my mincher pincher mix has rotten teeth. I never realized it until she was eating differently(like it hurt)her teeth aren’t the worst but they are bad. I wont to do something to help quickly before they start to get worse.I know that rotten teeth is an infection that will spread through out the body witch will kill the dog so that is why I wonted to know if I could do anything to help her teeth besides the vet, before her teeth get to bad?.I know the vet is the best thing to do.my mom said that she will call the vet in the morning. but we don’t have much money. Were I live(Shelton, Washington) it is $50-60 just for the vet to check the dog out.it was $50 just to put my old mini rex rabbit down last year.so yeah,is there anything I could do for her teeth besides the vet? I was thinking doggy toothpaste but I don’t know if it would help much…thank you 🙂

  • dental care, such as toothpaste etc is used to PREVENT decay, which in your dog’s case is a little too late

    dental care for a dog is not cheap….and I dont think there is anything else you can do at home

  • There is nothing you can do now that the teeth have already rotten. Brushing your dog teeth or massaging its gums as a almost daily grooming process throughout your dogs life can help prevent it, but that’s all.

    You do have to take your dog to the vet, to make sure their is not infection and so they can help him in general. It is painful to eat with rotten teeth, you know. If you do care for the teeth very carefully, and everyday, you might not have to take your dog to the vet over and over. You should massage her gums and feed her very soft food and treats. (The vet should tell you what to do). It is very expensive but think, #1 He is your beloved doggy! #2 It’s not like you take him to the vet everyday, it’s just an occasion.

    I hope this helps and I hope your adorable doggy gets better!!!!!!

  • VET IMMIDATLEY. Rotten teeth cause a lot of pain for the dog and may stop it eating and it can loose a dangerous amount of weight, you should really have been have been brushing your dogs teeth or giving it denta sticks to prevent the teeth and gum infections.

  • Sure doggy toothpaste, those things that come on commercials all the time that dogs can eat and chew on and it cleans their teeth. There’s this doggy tooth spray(it’s like toothpaste but a spray). There are lots of things that can help.

  • Only idiots feed their dog’s kibble- it destroys their teeth and is comprised of mediocre ingredients, at best. Raw fed diets are radically healthier.

  • brushing her teeth regularly will help remove the plaque and tartar and keep it from buidling up

    for the teeth that are already damaged or infected, they need vet care.

  • Start digging the grave OR get a parent to take it to a vet. You decide.
