Start brushing as young as possible and brush as often as possible. Tooth decay can cause major, life threatening problems involving the heart and other vital organs. And the bonus is that your chi will have sweeter breath. :lol:
ITA!! I brush Chico's teeth 2-3 times a week. Sometimes dogs can be fussy when you try to brush their teeth, but eventually they'll get used to it.

Also, there are these really great treats made by a company called Cloud Star. They make these treats called "Buddy Biscuits" and one of the flavors is Minty Madness and they help with bad doggy breath. here's the link if you want to check them out. Chico loves them. :)

I seem to remember a thread on here a while back discussing bad breath and dog food, and I think one of the foods mentioned as possibly causing bad breath was Royal Canin. Does the food have garlic listed as one of the ingredients? I use Royal Canin dry also, but I never notice bad breath with Jazzy.

Brushing is excellent though, and the younger you can start the better.
