It's about more than just bad breath, or hygiene is an important part of your dog's overall health.
You should never use YOUR toothpaste for your dog (as convenient as that may be). Human toothpaste contains soap. That's what makes it foam. But soap shouldn't be ingested, and smart as your dog may be, you're probably not going to teach him to rinse and spit! KIssable vanilla flavored toothpaste is All Natural and is specifically formulated to be safe for dogs (and their people) It contains Tea tree oil, which helps fight plaque and is naturally sweetened with Stevia. But more importantly it uses a mild abrasive to clean teeth and disinfect the whole mouth. Use Kissable toothpaste with our Kissable brush for a clean mouth and fresh breath.
Tips on keeping your dog's teeth clean
1. Brush at least 3 times per week to get maximum benefit
2. Don't use human toothpaste unless you have taught your dog to spit! Look on the back of your toothpaste. You will most likely find a statement that it should not be ingested. This is because it contains soap. Soap creates foam, which gives people the perception that the product is cleaning but is not indicative of the cleaning power of a product (it is for marketing purposes: perception is reality). Toothpaste designed specifically for pets does not contain soap; it won't foam up; and it can be swallowed safely.
3. Replace the toothbrush when the bristles become frayed or every 3 months, as the brush will start to harbor microorganisms.
