We try to promote teeth bushing as much as possible to our clients. I'd have to say about 70% of them get teeth brushing.

Cameo gets rec. bones for dental health and petzlife oral gel smile

I don't offer teeth brushing at my shop due to the lack of at-home dental care. It can be more harmful than good if there is a build up of plaque and tarter on the teeth and you loosen up that bacteria and it gets into the blood stream.

I offer it, but I discourage it most of the time if they are not going to do it at home daily. I have a hard time taking money from folks, knowing that that is all I am doing. If they would do this daily for their dogs, I wouldn't mind doing it for them for that day. If they could get a cleaning from the vet, and then start a daily routine of brushing, I would be glad to do it for them on their groom. I am with Cameo, I think it is more harmful than helpful to just do it every now and then.

Yippie! Spring- is here :)

I get mine brushed when I get hold of something disgusting like cat pooh. It doesn't happen too often now that mom knows where the strays cut through the field. She manages to avoid it confused

I actually really like the toothpaste ( minty ). So mom has a hard time getting them brushed before I lick all the toothpaste off the toothbrushlaugh out loud

She found it's easier to clean mine with a piece of papertowel or cotton pad with a little toothpaste on it.

I ditto Cameo's comment. RMB and occasionally Petzlife keep my pack's teeth tartar-free. No need for brushing around here.

I use chewies that help teeth and have a product I use that I put in their water. It works really well to! All my animals teeth look brand new and shiny white.

I try to brush Bingley's teeth a few times a week, or everyday if I can remember. Then I also have all kinds of dental toys for him to chew.
