My pup does not like to get his teeth brushed, but he does reluctantly....until I got this toothpaste! Unfortunately, in the outside the product is not appealing and I hate to say that I almost passed on it. So a low score for marketing, but a high score for pet approval! I have not used it long to see any improvement, but my pup already has good dental health. My pup did not seem to like the toothpaste brand that I was using before, even though I had tried several flavors. I will continue buying this toothpaste for him as I know this would be his choice if he could buy it himself!
I bought this after a vet recommended it for my kitten’s gingivitis. I didn’t expect my senior dog to be obsessed with it too! She never liked getting her teeth brushed, even with other doggy toothpastes, but this one makes it easy. She loves brushing time every day now. Our cat also tolerates it, although she isn’t as obsessed with the flavor. Great for multi-pet homes.
I have been using this toothpaste (poultry flavor) for a few years. My Pom loves the taste. At night when she sees me with the toothbrush, she gets excited. I put her on my lap to brush her teeth and if I take too long to get started, she takes one of her paws and scratches at my hand, pulling it to her mouth. I think the toothpaste does help her teeth.
Not all cats are created equal. Our male senior cat LOVES this stuff, thinks it's a treat, can't get enough of it. But he likes wet food and treats. Our younger female cat is very picky with wet food and treats, and she does NOT like the smell/taste of this and now runs away if I try to approach her with it. You gotta know your cat, and some cats are gonna take to the teeth brushing better than others.
My dog licked it off the brush at first but then made a face! She wouldn't touch it after, not sure why. I really wanted this toothpaste to work because it's recommened by vets. Maybe I'll try another flavor.
It’s not going to remove tarter if it’s on the teeth. But I do love the prevention it does help with. My boys love brushing these teeth. There two years old and have mild tarter only because I do forget sometimes to brush but it does do really well because there teeth are amazing!
Our girl LOVES to get her teeth brushed. We brush her teeth every evening and it is because of this wonderful dog toothpaste that shew gets so excited. Our girl loves the flavor and enjoys the teeth brushing experience. She has pearly white teeth at the age of 9 years old..and has great oral health and I would not use any other toothpaste for her. I trust the quality of this product.
I put the paste on one of those kids toothbrushes that has the suction bottom - put it on a window and let the cats go at it. I act like it’s a treat and so they’re now brushing their own teeth. It’s not perfect but better than no brushing. They like the taste and get excited
I started using this toothpaste every night about a year and a half ago when my wheaten terrier was about 5 years old, and I noticed positive effects right away. The vet had told me previously that I needed to start considering a dental cleaning, and I was hoping to put it off for a while. At our appointment 6 months after we started brushing, the vet said his teeth looked "great", and we weren't in any rush to do a dental cleaning. About 7 months ago, I started noticing blood in my dog's poop on a fairly regular basis. He's always had some digestion struggles, and we had some particularly big life changes so initially, I thought it might be stress, and then when it didn't improve we did a dewormer. Fecal results continually came back normal for parasites while his digestive struggles became more consistently a problem (it was frequently diarrhea with big drops of bright red blood), and it seemed to be causing him some amount of pain, as I noticed some behavioral changes. He eats Royal Canin Gastrointestinal Formula, which the vet assured me was safe and the best thing for him given some allergies. I didn't think that it could be the toothpaste until about 2 weeks ago when we decided to stop our nightly teeth brushing routine in a desperate attempt to get to the bottom of this. In just that short time, his digestive struggles have improved so much. There is less blood in his poop, and it is more frequently a "normal" consistency. I have been reading about the ingredients in dog toothpaste all morning and falling down a rabbit hole. This stuff is full of chemicals that are known to be linked to all sorts of problems. It is so incredibly discouraging that this product is rated so highly and there are not warnings on the product for how much should be used and the potential for longterm side effects if used consistently. Brushing my dog's teeth was supposed to be good for his health, but it turned out that I was slowly poisoning him.
I was so nervous to start brushing my cats teeth, but after spending LOTS of money on my cats last dental cleaning & tooth extraction, I knew I had to toughen up and start doing it. I bought two types of toothpaste to try with them. Both of my cats LOVE this one from Virbac! They love the taste and when they see me putting a drop on their toothbrush they both come running over to me. Although I struggle getting all of their teeth, I know we're making progress. And luckily the cats see this as a positive "treat" at the end of the day. Hopefully at our next dental cleaning in a year or two, we see a lower bill and a good report from the vet!
