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.
