Cleaning a dog's teeth, which toothpaste?

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.

Is that it's name "Green Gel"?

I imagine he'd have to eat an awful lot of it to make any difference, which in itself would be pretty unhealthy. Most dogs tend to gulp cheese because they like the taste so much, not a lot of chewing involved.

 

Try a 24 year old Gouda. A lot of chewing...  but veeery expensiiive.

You can get stuff from vets and pet shops that you squirt in the dogs mouth along the teeth and gums. It foams up and is like a mouthwash. Cleans the dogs teeth a bit but gets rid of bad breath . It’s minty flavour I think .

I ust to chop my meat to small pieces and cook it, took hrs, and dog had very bad breath. One day on the bad breath issue I thought in the wild the dogs don't cook there meat so stoped cooking it but still cut into small pieces  dog still scoffed it down in a few secods, didnt work. Started thinking how they ate in the wild, they pulled it of there for flossing their teeth with the sinues. End result I cut the meat into meal seise pieces so dog had to chew and pull it apart and the bone I left a meal of meat on it as when pulling it off the sinues flossed the teeth. ( bones don't clean teeth, only wear them down ) Bingo no more problems ever again and much less work in the prep of food. Vets dont want to solve the problems with your pets as you wont need to take the vet thus no money for them.

I was told by my vet in the USA and my ex-fiancee who was a dog breeder that brushing your dogs teeth each day is just about the best thing that you can do for their health and longevity.

 

The first thing to note is that you really do need special dog toothpaste. As well as helping the teeth, it is something that they can eat and it tastes good, so it's something that they can look forward too. Human toothpaste is not good for your dog. I have no idea what's available in Thailand, you may as previous posters have suggested have to buy online, but it's much better to get toothpaste rather than a gel that you just smear on. The brushing action does of course help prevent the buildup of tartar.

 

 

Unfortunately, it's easiest to start with when they're a puppy, starting later is tougher and you definitely need to be very patient - little by little till they get more and more used to it.

 

Good luck - it should save you a lot on vet bills, as well as improving their life.

Can for some reason not ad text with my previous post. This is a very good way of "tooth brushing" this malinois has the whitest teeth from all our dogs. They are all on the same diet.

 

When the dogs notice I am watching he brings the coconut to me.

 

Many dogs like to eat coconut. When you give them a dehusked coconut and you break it open, but do not remove the meat from the coconut they have to remve it themself. They spend hours doing this.

 

Arjen.
