This stuff made my cats mouth foam up and she gagged horribly. If you love your pet don't use it!
I’m excited to get into a brushing routine with my kittens. However, they won’t even try this toothpaste! They literally recoil at the smell and they are not picky with many things. I’m not sure what it is, but I’ll have to try something else.
I purchased this recently for my cat who has had dental issues and needed something to help clean her teeth. I was really hopeful for this stuff to become apart of our routine. But good LORD, it is disgusting. The smell itself is indescribable, nothing like mint or anything pleasant, and it must taste worse than it smells because out of about 4 or so cats, every single one of them gaped their mouths and refused to smell it again. Not even the dog liked it!
I got a dog toothpaste so I decided to get one for my kitten too. My kitten was curious as to what was on my finger, she smelled it and ran! I then put it on her lips since it could've been the smell she was uninterested in and maybe she would like the taste instead. She didn't even like the taste! Every time she smells it, she runs!! she liked the smell of the dog's tooth paste which is bacon flavored. My dogs smelled it and they didn't like it either (and they eat everything).
The toothbrush was very awkward to try to use for either of my cats (6mo old). I think if it had a shorter handle or a different angle it may be easier to use. We also tried this toothpaste on our fingers, on a finger brush, and on the included toothbrush and both cats HATED it! As soon as they smelled it they wouldn't get near it, ran from us, and when forcing it on one of them, she repeatedly licked/washed her face/gagged. We'll be trying a different teeth cleaning product and write this off as a waste.
So this toothpaste made my cat drool and foam do not trust this ...
My kitten finds this disgusting. I couldn’t get her to try it while she was awake, so I attempted to rub it on her teeth while she was sleeping. She woke up, gagged, and wouldn’t stop smacking her mouth. Wound up giving her treats because I felt bad lol. She hasnt been picky with anything else I’ve bought for her consumption. I smelled it myself before giving it to her, and it’s WACK. It is not a pleasant smell, and not even meaty, which is what I was expecting.
This is flavored tuna but has a strong minty smell to it. We tried it with my kitten when he was 8-10 weeks old and he hated it..he's on his way to being 3.5 months and he still hates it. Closes his eyes and makes a funny face when we try to bring the toothpaste near him. He doesn't mind the toothbrush though. I might try a different brand toothpaste.
The toothbrush and cover was nice, but neither of my girls were willing to let the toothpaste near their mouth :( I’ve tried other cat toothpastes since then and have not had the same issue
I don't know if our cat is just weird or not, but she and her 9 week old kittens didn't really like the toothpaste very much (maybe it is the mint?). Also, the bristles of the toothbrush are stiffer than I expected, but the toothbrush isn't marketed as being "soft" so it isn't a big issue. I'll probably get a softer toothbrush sometime in the future so the cat isn't so scared of teeth brushing (it was her first time). Maybe she'll like the toothpaste more if it is mixed with a little wet food gravy. I'll have to give it a try.
