    Default How the heck do you brush a bullies teeth?!!!

    Ok so this morning we were doing our weekly grooming routine... I save the teeth brushing for LAST because it seems to be the hardest to do. DANG Winston bit off the end of the doggie toothbrush!!! I had to chase him down to get the brush end out of his mouth before he swallowed the damn thing!!! Does anybody have any advice or use something that works better to clean their teeth? I"m at my wits end...

    Ohhh I forgot to add that I was in the backyard in my PJ'S CHASING WINSTON DOWN!!! My neighbors were probably laughing their heads off... LOL

    I use a rubber finger that has bristles at the tip of it. My vet said I could just use gauze to clean their teeth as well.
    See if either of those make a difference? I got the finger at Petsmart.

    And what's our famous sayin? Didn't happen without video and/or photo's. So, where are they?

    Winnie will let me touch his bottom "tusks" only. He's very sensitive about his teeth. It may stem from one too many "Your dog needs braces!" jokes from my brother...

    Well I guess I didn't want to post a pic of me in my PJ's, but what the heck the whole neighborhood saw me... LOL
    I guess I need to go buy the finger, hopefully Winston won't chew that off...

    We started with a bare finger on Harlea and have progressed to the rubber finger. She loves the toothpasth we got her.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Well tried and failed Fergus let me keep my finger.... I couldnt even get close to him he kept running from me. I will just have to do what we do for our lab greenies, bones and carrots. Our lab is 6 yrs old and his vet says he has great teeth so hopefully it will be the same for Fergus.

    My foster dog had really bad teeth but after few months of dentastix and no brushing (that would result in my face being eaten!) they where pearly white
