4oz Maxi/Guard Oral Cleaning Gel
maxiguard
My favorite product for daily brushing dog's teeth, by Addison Biological Lab Inc. From Google Shopping search. Flavorless dentifrice makes it EASIER to train your dog to be still, minimizes licking and allows you to do a more efficient job of cleaning.

8oz Clenz-a-dent Chlorhexidine Rinse
clenz-a-dent
Clenz-a-dent with Chlorhexidine Gluconate 0.13% and Zinc, Bad news! They've changed the formula to make it thicker so it's difficult and far less effective for spot application and flushing under the gumline for people wanting to take better care of their dog's oral needs. I will keep looking for a better product.

I no longer reccommend Dentahex (VET, Vetoquinol) because they added alcohol to their formula.


My NEW favorite toothbrush for most dogs
CET toothbrush
The Virbac CET small dog (and cat) toothbrush use to be my favorite. Sadly the quality went down: bristles would go mushy quickly and would fall out.

I'm so happy with the H&H Pet Toothbrushes for small dogs and cats! The head is a bit smaller and narrower than the CET and the handle end is wider and longer. Easier and more comfortable to hold. The bristles
are a decent firmness and really hold up over time. They are also reasonably priced! Get them at Amazon.

Dremel 12v Lithium Ion Cordless Rotary Tool (8220)

Highest quality nail grinder on the market. From Google Shopping search.

Veterinary Service Referrals
Don't confuse smarmy bedside manner and fancy waiting rooms with ethical veterinary practices or quality medical treatment! These vets are more more like old-time family physicians. Sensible and no-nonsense, unlike profit oriented chains like VCA.
