Written by Contributing Editor Beverly Philips

If you’ve wanted to know how to go about cleaning your dog’s teeth, the first thing you should know is that you should not use human toothpaste. This article will cover the top 5 best puppy dog teeth cleaning products and procedure. The reason you do not use human toothpaste for your dog is that dog toothpaste is formulated to dissolve the plaque that may be built up on your pet’s teeth, and you don’t necessarily brush your pooches teeth like you do your own. In fact, rigorous brushing is not advised nor is it necessary.

A lot of the dog toothpastes available today are designed to make it easy for your dog to go through the procedure of canine tooth cleaning and are flavored to make the experience more pleasant.

  1. Gum disease is one of the biggest problems in old dogs – and if you don’t start brushing their teeth when they’re puppies, it’s harder to start when they’re old. Thanks for sharing this very important information. Just like your kids – you want them to start cleaning their teeth when they’re young so the don’t deal with oral health problems later on.

    • Very true. If we can avoid teeth problems early on, it sure pays off for an old dog who has enough to worry about in their senior years. Thanks for the comments Andi.

    • Yes, it’s great that we don’t have to treat dog’s teeth like we do our own in that the paste takes care of dissolving the build up of plaque. Thanks for visiting.

  2. Can petrodex be used for an 8week old puppy? Or is that too young? And thank you for the information :)

    • Hi Nicky. Thanks for the great question. In a way, the answer is yes, and no. Yes, meaning that although an 8 week old puppy doesn’t really need his teeth cleaned, but it’s a good habit to start getting him used to. Taking care not to let those sharp incisors to chomp down on you, I recommend using a finger. The sooner your dog gets used to brushing the better, and one of the first hurdles is training him to know that it’s ok for you to put your finger into his mouth. If you wait too long, it’s going to be much harder for an older dog to get used to brushing. Once the puppy starts losing teeth (around 4-6 months old) the gums may become sensitive to touch–so be careful.

      As for Petrodex, no, it’s not going to hurt the dog at all. Dog toothpaste is edible and designed with that in mind.

      The “no” portion of the answer is to point out that your puppy doesn’t actually need his teeth cleaned. He’s going to lose all of his puppy teeth, and it would be rare to see any dental problems in puppy teeth. The main point is to get him used to your finger (with a little toothpaste on it) being in his mouth, as you gently rub on the teeth and gums.

      It’s really only necessary to brush the outside of your puppy’s teeth. A dog’s saliva takes care of the inside of the teeth by the natural cleaning process that occurs inside his mouth.

      Once you feel your puppy is used to your finger, you can graduate to the toothbrush (small) and perhaps back off during the teething period to avoid discomfort and a dislike for brushing.

      Let it be an enjoyable time for your puppy, and he will look forward to it. Once per week is generally enough to keep a dog’s teeth clean.

      It’s all about training your puppy that tooth brushing is going to be a lifelong practice and that it can be fun and beneficial.

      I hope that helps Nicky.

      Thanks for visiting.
