Dog toothpaste?

This is a discussion on Dog toothpaste? within the Dog Health forums, part of the Keeping and Caring for Dogs category; I would think they would know I get them from a small 'mom and pop' pet store and they know where their stuff comes from. ...

Edit: Another butcher has chicken necks by the box. I ordered that.

They said the backs are generally said to be not as good because they have little bones in them...comments?

I know my dog is fine with the necks.

My dog is looking at me.... upset.... I gave her a toy my friend gave me...it looks like a large rubber ball (think of those red kong toys - don't think it's exactly like those, though). She broke off what was left of the feet (I took these chunks away from her) and is now complaining.. I guess it's too much trouble to get her mouth around the ball (to put it in her mouth - it's a bit too big)... what a lazy dog, eh?

I have always been warned to never use human toothpaste for a dog. Humans, at least in theory, do not swallow the toothpaste, dogs do. As far as brand, have been using CET for a number of years, no ill effects, only clean teeth, and maybe it contributes to her not having bad breath.

Yeah, that is what I was considering....and still might buy.... just until I see if bones will keep her teeth clean or I can do both.

I'm worried about the sorbitol but it seems like a lot of people are buying that brand - and the company must have a good deal because it is the 'official' brand at vets, it seems.

I read that some brands with 'meat' flavour (e.g. Art & Hammer) also work but some owners have complained about the resulting breath the dog has after its use.

I would accept the trade-off of bad breath if sorbitol wasn't in it but it's in that one, too.

As far as bad breath, Samantha does not have bad breath, don't know if she just doesn't, or the daily brushing keeps her breath fresh.

As far as the sorbitol, everything I read says, small quantities not toxic to dogs. We have been using CET for over four years, Vet says she is as healthy an eight year old as he has seen.

Zymox tooth paste it's called Oratene
They have a brushless gel (can brush if you want) or a water additive
It uses natural enzymes is flavor and odorless inexpensive and it's the best toothpaste ever
Works great also if your dog or cat has a dry mouth.
