First of all it's not too late! Dental care is a lifelong habit. It's a habit that's difficult to form which is why we designed Chompers to be easy to use. The important thing is to get into a daily habit. But you should definitely act! Many dogs eventually have to have teeth pulled when they aren't taken care of. The best way to think about dental care is to go to the vet for an annual cleaning, and the rest of the time use a daily habit forming solution like Chompers. Chompers will help prevent the buildup of bacteria that builds towards plaque, tartar and eventually tooth decay.
