Do you brush your pets teeth, use dental treats to improve their health or is that going to far?
Just so you know I took the picture of brushing my horses teeth for a laugh:))). Don't try it they might eat the brush!! Actually I think they make big brushes for them, naaah I'll have the vet do it.
If you do brush your pets teeth what toothpaste do you use organic, pet related (dog, cat) etc?
We don't brush our 3 dogs' teeth (although I'm sure it would be easier than brushing a horse's teeth) however we do feed them only dry dog food (and some table scraps of course) and half of their treats are hard and half are soft. The vet always checks their teeth and we've not had any issues until the last visit. He wants to thoroughly clean the teeth of our 10 1/2 year old Westie to prevent any issues as she ages. Will have to put her to sleep to do it.
I do brush my dogs teeth, just a few times a week. I don't feel that it's going to far personally. A dog tooth brush and tooth paste is cheap, but having to pay for a vet to do a dental on a dog is not only much much more expensive, but more risky as well (since most vets use anesthesia while preforming dental cleanings on pets).
I use dog tooth paste. Human tooth paste is not safe to use on pets. A tube of good enzymatic dog tooth paste only costs me about $4 and lasts me a pretty long time. It's worth it to me.
It's a myth that feeding hard or kibble foods cleans pets teeth.

Lol! Love the humor! I don't have a pet right now, but we did give them treats to help remove tarter from their teeth. Don't know about brushing but if needed then I guess I would.

Some of my relatives heard of reports that Greenies treats were unsafe for dogs and cats and for that reason they do not give them to their pets. However, they also said it was a few years ago that they heard this. Has anyone else heard about this and if so, can they really be harmful for pets?

How does one go about brushing their teeth without spitting?I had a tooth pulled and the dentist sent me home with a sheet detailing "Care Instructions". Under the First 48-Hours After Surgery list, however, instructions Number 2 and 3 appear a wee bit contradictory: #2. DO NOT SPIT,...
