The one nearest me is a miserable sod who doesn't like animals ☹️

Great person to have as a vet.

So, looking to clean his teeth myself, as his breath is a bit on the nose and he's developing some tartar as well.

Had same problem with an elder dog in my home country (Denmark), and the local animal doctor said that I should try to use a soft toothbrush dipped in mouthwash for children. It actually worked quite well, even the dog didn't fancy it in the beginning, but got used to it after a while. Of course, the natural way by chewing bones – or other stuff that clean the teeth, could eventually be dried pig-ear – is better.

No not just in Thailand.  You'll find most times the things the vets do you can do yourself for a lot cheaper.  For example bad rashes,  use human corticosteroid cream. Pain control,  use coated aspirin, vomit inducement,  google has the answer.  You just need good cognition to feed through the nonsense net garbage.

Will do. Ordered some tooth gel for dogs as well, so will try brushing his teeth regularly as well.

I will talk to the vet when I take her back in 2 weeks. Will see what they suggest to do. Dog is 9 year old so maybe hard to train.

Love to brush my cat's teeth.  He lays right along side of me at night in bed while I'm reading a book.  When he yawns, near my face, it's worse than an open sewer.   :sick:

You've heard of the expression "like herding cats"? The only solution is anaesthesia at a vet.

I used a product that is from the U.S....sold in many vet shops. Green gel. You 

can brush it on if the dog allows it or just smear it on. My dog was almost 16 when she died last year. Her teeth were still perfect.

. I was told of a "stuff" that you put in their drinking water and helps keep tartar down but that was in Australia so trying to find out what it is and if I can't buy here I will get some and bring back on my visit there in September.

I bought that "stuff" here in Thailand. Supposed to put few drops in the water dish, but my dog wouldn't drink the water from the dish if it's in it. I also bought dog's toothpaste. The dog would lick it off the brash but trying to brush her teeth is a lost straggle. Both my dogs love bones and from time to time I buy them big cow's bones. the back teeth are still brown at the top. I will try the coconut though
