Are you hesitant to pucker up to your dog thanks to stinky breath? Our helpful tooth brushing hints will have them feeling (and smelling) fresh in no time. But first things first—you have to find the best dog toothpaste for your best bud’s teeth and tastebuds.
Here are our top 5 favorite brands of dog toothpaste in a variety of flavors and sizes.
The poultry flavor of Petrodex toothpaste reels dogs in, and the special formula reduces tartar and plaque buildup on their teeth (making that breath a little fresher, as well).
Virbac dog toothpaste boasts more enzymes than other brands for an extra-deep clean and serious anti-bacterial action. From seafood to vanilla mint to beef, there’s bound to be a flavor your dog will love.
Okay, this isn’t a toothpaste, really, but it’s might handy! KissAble makes well-regarded dog “tooth wipes” that don’t require a brush, which can be a good alternative to brushing.
Vet’s Best super-gentle formula dog toothpaste is made with aloe, grapefruit seed extract, baking soda, and other natural, dog-friendly ingredients. You only need to use it a few times a week to improve that canine smile.
Sporting an array of interesting flavors your dog will adore (liver or peanut, anyone?), Nylabone tarter control toothpaste comes via a trusted brand in dog chews.
Some dogs are picky about the flavor and consistency of their toothpaste, so you may have to try more than one brand before you find the right fit.
Thankfully, there are plenty of dog toothpastes available, and they’re fairly inexpensive. Regular brushing will help keep your dog’s smile clean, healthy, and most of all, kissable.
