Dog toothpaste v.2

Bump: Sorry for the late follow-up. I bought the CET only because it was convenient...it was available at my vet's. I'm still worried about using it (long term), though.

My dog likes the taste.... she wants to lick it right away.... how do you brush a dog's teeth that likes it too much?

Ok, I have been brushing Samantha's teeth with CET for years, no ill effects. She had her teeth cleaned by the Vet when she was three years old. She had a rough time with the anesthesia, and I vowed to do every possible to avoid her having to go through that again. She will be nine years next month, and gets regular Vet exams, Vet says her teeth are good and need no intervention from him. I brush her teeth every morning without fail, and believe me it works. Her teeth are all white and unstained, Vet says in good shape. I use the beef flavored CET for Samantha.

But, is she still and not trying to lick it off immediately?

The vet said the main thing is that it 'gets in her mouth' but I was wondering if you are not really 'brushing' the teeth much, then how is it effective? I might be over-worrying but if I am going to use 'questionable' toothpaste and spend $$ on it, then I would like to know if it matters whether she is trying to 'lick it off' right away. At least, she likes it though as I have read that sometimes dogs don't like it and try to avoid it. That would be difficult.

With Samantha, the toothpaste is on the brush, so I go directly for her teeth with the brush. Yes she licks, but obviously enough is brushed on her teeth to work. As I said at three years her teeth were quite stained and had significant tarter on them. It has now been six years, with daily brushing, her teeth are white, not stained or discolored, and more importantly her Vet says they are good and do not need his intervention. I am definitely a believer of daily brushing, it certainly has worked for us. As far as being still, I would have to say, I doubt she sees having her teeth brushed as a highlight of her day, but she does stay in one place and tolerates my doing it, but in general she is pretty tolerant of anything I do for her, but not necessarily anyone else, certainly does not like the Vet doing anything to her.

Why not just give a raw meaty bone three times a week or so? Like chicken necks or turkey necks? So much easier. The dog is brushing it's own teeth, and any plaque build up will go away and stay away. Plus, it's nutritious.

Its really not difficult to brush her teeth, just part of our every morning routine, like brushing her coat. We are talking maybe something less than four minutes out of the day, really no big deal, especially since she is conditioned to expect it, and the treats that follow. Plus for us this is tried and true and works!!!!

I didn't even know dogs should brush their teeth. I like the bone idea someone posted but do you have to put toothpaste on the bone you give them?

No. The bone does all the work.
