Making Your Own Spray for a Dog's Teeth

by Elle Di Jensen

I get lots more kisses now that I'm using the parsley spray.

The task of brushing Jordy's teeth is one that's easy to put off and eventually forget altogether. Procrastinating leads to doggy breath and can cause tooth loss and infection that could eventually affect his heart, liver and kidneys. Dental sprays, though they're no substitute for brushing, can control bacteria that cause plaque, dental disease and bad breath. A variety of doggy oral sprays exist in the pets consumer market, but you can make one of your own.

Step 1

Pour a cup of boiling water into a glass bowl.

Step 2

Place four to five sprigs of the fresh parsley into the hot water. Allow it to steep for five minutes.

Step 3

Remove the parsley from the water and allow it to cool to room temperature.

Step 4

Pour the cooled water into the spray bottle and screw the sprayer lid into place.
