My Pomeranian pup absolutely did not like the smell or taste. Couldn’t get past trying to introduce a bit on my finger.he twitched his nose and started shaking his head. Absolutely would not let me get near his teeth with some on the finger brush.
Works great, it just smells really bad. But my puppy likes the taste.
Kip is a 4yr old yorkie that already has a history of dental disease. We began brushing after getting his teeth professionally cleaned at the vet. We started with the “breath fresh” toothpaste by this same brand- Though he enjoyed the taste, we noticed new tartar buildup despite regular brushing. We then got this “tartar control” product and here is my review: Pros- I noticed a difference in the tartar on his teeth almost immediately. It is magical. I will continue to use this product for that reason alone. Cons- The smell is the reason I’m giving 4 stars as opposed to 5. Kip used to lick the toothbrush clean when we used the “breath fresh” vanilla toothpaste. He does NOT like the taste of the beef flavor and it leaves his breath smelling very dog-like (aka, not great). I wish they would create a tartar control toothpaste in the vanilla flavor. Otherwise, this product does exactly what it claims to do.
I read a couple of reviews that mentioned that the reviewers' dogs didn't like the toothpaste, but I figured that wouldn't be a problem - my dogs will eat anything! Well, not so much. I put a bit on my finger and let them each smell - one dog wouldn't go near it, and the other took one lick and then actually shook her head, like, "yuck!" The toothbrush and finger brush are worthy of the Arm & Hammer name, but we're going to have to find a new toothpaste to use with them!
My first time buying something to help with my dog’s teeth and my dog HATED it. Maybe it was the taste of it because my dog would mostly tolerate anything. Waste of money but atleast I know that this product won’t help haha.
I try brush and toothpaste on my dogs and they taste and not sure if they like or not . it will take their time
It is not easy to brush my dog’s teeth but this product has all the options to do that. Right now my finger is working beat. It helps her breath
My dog gets her teeth brushed everyday and she has always been ok with other brands and flavors of toothpaste but she did not like this flavor at all. I also didnt care for the toothbrush that came with this kit, bristles are rough compared to her usual one.
Great value- much cheaper than many of the tooth care kits I’ve seen at stores or other sites. Comes with a good brush and finger “brush”. The toothpaste itself STINKS! So so badly. My dog didn’t love having his teeth brushed and I can’t tell if it’s because of the smell/taste of the paste. I may try a different paste to see how he responds to that.
I love that this set offers three burshing options. My dog loves the toothpaste too.
