View Full Version : Dog teeth

11-26-2016, 05:02 PM
I used to be really good about brushing our dog's teeth regularly. Then the girls were born:) Then the dog got diagnosed with a heart murmur so we (and vets) are generally reluctant to put her under any kind of anesthesia. Plus she's old now. I need to find something to brush her teeth with that will at least maintain her current dental health. Her teeth aren't too bad, though there is some tartar build-up since she's around 12 years old.

Any recommendations that wouldn't be too unpleasant for her? I used to use a chlorhexidine dental solution. I could probably do that again if it's the best option...she definitely hated it though.

There is dog toothpaste, but just the act of brushing will remove a lot of the plaque that leads to tarter build up.

We use this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00025K0R6/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1480195745&sr=8-1&keywords=dog+toothpaste&pi=SY200_QL40

It's beef flavor and she doesn't fight when we (DH) brush her. I'll buy chicken flavor next time, since I've finally figured out it's her preferred flavor.
