How often do you brush your dog's teeth??

What kind of toothpaste do you use?

How often do you brush your dog's teeth??
NEVER - feed your dog a species appropriate diet of raw meat, edible bones and offal and you will never have to do this either. The large chunks of meat will both floss the teeth and massage the gums while the bones scrape plaque and tarter of the teeth. The only ones you may have to wipe over occasionally are the canines but this is usually caused by the meat pieces being too small for the dog to rip and tear.

Over 80% of commercial fed dogs (whether on tinned or dry) have periodontal disease by the age of three. This can be a serious problem with proven links to other health issues. These statistics are then used by the same manufacturers to make and promote more unneccessary and inappropriate products (think greenies, denta-bones, nylabones, toothpaste etc)

Reply:Never.. thats what bones, rope toys and dental chews are for... my dogs all have awesome teeth according to the vet.
Reply:I brush his teeth everytime he gets his bath, I dont use any toothpaste as such...and I am not sure if it is ok to use human tooth paste....yeah atleast once in every 10-15days....but I make sure that he gets bone treats once a week...that helps his teeth from plaque...mine has whitey white
Reply:about 3 times in 2 weeks- or 6 times a month. I use dog toothpaste I got at superpet- it was a large tube...
Reply:I use the doggie toothpaste from wal*Mart my favorite store and I brush her teeth like one a month

There prey model raw diet takes care of that for me.

Only use toothpaste for dogs if you do brush your dogs teeth.
Reply:Every day - or at least try to everyday. They actually LOVE it. I got a toothpaste/brush set from the vet and it was only 4 bucks. The toothpastes are usually meat flavored or something the dogs like. IF possible start when they are young so they get used to it.
Reply:i brush my dogs teeth when she gets a bath or whenever i have the time. She loves it because her toothpaste tastes like chicken (or so the tube says) she also gets dental chews at least once a week and she has sparkling white teeth.
Reply:About 3 times a week.

Use dog toothpaste. They sell it at Petco, Petsmart, and other petstores. Human toothpaste isn't good for dogs.
