Baths and Tooth Brushing 

If a bath is necessary, you can bathe a puppy that is at least 8 weeks of age. Use only puppy shampoo, and never allow any water or shampoo to get inside your little one’s mouth, ears or eyes. An oatmeal-based shampoo is very moisturizing and gentle. Dry with a soft fluffy towel and allow drying in a nice warm room. Make sure your puppy stays warm after bathing to decrease illness.
 
Brushing your puppy’s teeth helps to keep them healthy and plaque free. Teeth brushing should begin when your puppy is 6 months old and all their adult teeth have erupted. Providing home dental care early can help delay the need for a cleaning and protect your puppy’s teeth while getting him used to having his mouth handled. We really like finger brushes for this!
