Want to avoid a trip to the doggy dentist???

Your dogs teeth need cleaningRoofus (aka Wisconsin Doggy) is an awesome dog – really, we totally lucked out when he picked us at the Humane Society.  He has not made messes around the house and his worst crime is probably being a little too over eager when greeting some of LJ’s friends at the door.  He is even good about letting me get tangles out of his fur and blow dry his coat after a bath.  But he is not really great at the whole tooth-brushing thing.  It’s not that he doesn’t like it, he just licks all of the toothpaste off and then chews the brush while I’m trying desperately to not hurt him in any way.  It’s not fun for either of us.

But, it is important (in fact, more than 80 percent of dogs develop periodontal disease by 3 years of age, according to the American Veterinary Dental Society) so I try to brush Roofus’ teeth on a semi-regular basis.  Since I am really not good about doing doing it every single day like the vet recommends, I like to keep my eyes open for tools and tricks that might make the whole doggy dental hygiene battle a little easier.  When Milk-Bone® offered to send over some new Brushing ChewsTM for Roofus to try, I gladly accepted.

    my dog hates a bath…you think it was the end of the world. but when she gets out she’s happy and energetic

  2. says

    My dogs don’t like their teeth being brushed. I need to pick up some of these bones for my oldest dog. She needs her teeth cleaned and Im willing to try these first before taking her in for an expensive cleaning, plus it can be traumatic for them.

    She always gets shy when she hears the bath water running, but she knows she’ll feel better afterwards, so she shuffles in.

    a bath it is like she thinks I am torturing here….she is miserable but afterwards feels good.

  5. Crystal F says

    We haven’t started brushing yet since she’s just a few months old but she does hate taking a bath. She fights it every time. thank you!!

  6. Thomas Gibson says

    My dog hates getting a bath. He likes to go roll all over the yard after getting a bath as if he thinks that the bath had made him dirty. Strange. I have to keep him inside and blow dry him off to prevent that from happening.

  7. Angela Ash says

    My dog hates having to go out in the rain. I have a raincoat for her, which helps but she’d rather avoid it all together.

    Our Lab actually is pretty good with having her teeth brushed, but she is not a fan of baths !!
