Do you brush your pet’s teeth? You really should, but NEVER use people toothpaste…you must use special pet toothpaste like this Virbac CET Enzymatic Toothpaste on sale right now at Coupaw.com. It’s formulated especially for dogs and cats so it’s safe when they swallow it after brushing. This is the brand Daisy uses and her favorite flavor is Poultry!
To make sure I remember to brush her teeth regularly, I keep her toothbrush and toothpaste in a bowl right on the kitchen counter, along with her nail clippers and monthly preventatives. I found in the past that when I put it away after use, I forgot about it!
If you’re having a hard time getting started with brushing your dog’s teeth, try putting a tiny bit of the flavored toothpaste on a treat or ice cube and let them chew it to learn what it smells and tastes like. Then the next time, put some on your finger and let your dog lick it. Then put a little on the brush and let them get used to licking that.
It really does taste good to them, so if you slowly work up to brushing, and make it FUN instead of a chore, they will learn to look forward to it and think of it as a treat. Some day, I’ll video tape the look on Daisy’s face when I ask her if she’s ready for tooth brushing…it’s hilarious! She stares at me like she’s checking to make sure she heard me right, and then runs in to the kitchen and waits!
