    Ohhhh Yea, Amazon always sends me their local deals, through their app, this one came from the Smile Bright store, and thinking I have an electric toothbrush, On those mornings when I'm in a rush to get out the door, The electric model would ensure a thorough brushing, and maybe even message their gums….. So I figured okay, I ordered it with the replacement head, Thinking one for each, cleanliness is next to godliness, So I ordered it, when it came in, it had it's little charger, the case for the heads, a little night light that shows you its charging, So I marked Rocky's brush head blue, and Rambo's toothbrush head Red, not wanting to mix them up, and knowing I couldn't brush with someone else's toothbrush, I really thought it was a great idea…..Until this morning!

I'm not sure if human toothpaste is safe for dogs.
    Monica, my reasoning was, if it's safe for human consumption, and made for bone, then they should be okay…. I mean it wasn't chocolate, Alvacado, or anything i've ever heard of or read of being dangerous, but luckily I knew an electric tooth brush, a little goes an extreme way, and the head of an electric tooth brush is much smaller than a normal brush, so for their teeth was just a dab, I doubt they even tasted it in their rush to devour the plastic stem, The head is just plastic, or should I say it was…… I'm sitting with the boys playing now, they have a rope and are playing tug a war, They've eaten dinner, But i'll surely get them some tooth paste from Pet Smart…. Dang, I had no idea they would destroy the tooth brush, or the paste was harmful!, I'm all about hygiene. Thanks for the article you sent me, and I didn't want to introduce any junk food or pastes or anything to their diet that would cause an allergy or diarrhea, Figured Crest was good enough for me….. Guessing Not though! Dang…

    Todd, it was definitely a quick chomp, not much warning either, I don't think they minded the noise of it starting up, They both have this thing about plastic, Nothing made of plastic should survive shredding….. I had a hard time getting it back from them…. Thinking Rambo would show Rocky how it was done, and all Rambo did was confirm Rockys feeling all plastic must be destroyed beyond recognition.

    Oh Yea Phil, like Bully Goats, and I mean it was a quick chomp…chomp…chomp, GIVE IT BACK… Chomp…Chomp…Chomp…

    Okay Becky… Maybe it wasn't the best idea I've ever had, But I truly had their best hygiene in mind…. Teeth effects the best health… Thinking I wanted to approach it a little differently……. So Exactly what are you SAYIN??

    Nope, I wish I were, thinking I haven't heard or read anything negative about brushing, and no tips on their teeth other than the Denta Bone… Thinking the electric Brush and a dab of crest would be great…. They disagreed !! glad I gathered up enough courage to embarrass myself by telling this story, However I was embarrassed they ate the brush X2, I figured they were just being their Bully Selves, until I read the article @Vikinggirl posted !! I guess they knew better than me…. I learn something new everyday… An electric brush is easily replaceable, Their Not !! So I learned something very valuable today, I'll use Arm and Hammer from Pet Smart next time, and put more effort into a regular brush, and hope for the best.

    @Davidh, is that true about regular toothpaste? I use the doggie one but just hadn't heard that before.

    And to think, my biggest concern this morning was figuring out how I was going to rinse their mouths out………. I honestly feel crummy!!!! Lack of knowledge could have killed one of my kids, or both, I need to start asking more questions before doing anything new. I just know that English Bull Dogs, In General have health issues, I'm more concerned about Rocky and Rambo than I've ever been with any of my other pets, Generally because of their health issues! Knowing in my life, I know how important personal health and Hygiene are, and how that Bad Teeth can cause numerous health problems, as just a start. Thinking I wanted to nip this issue in the Butt from jump street !! But after reading Monicas findings, I got to admit I feel like . Like everyone, I want the very best for my kids, and thinking I want the very best for them, and selfishly thinking I was doing the best for them, I would approach some things that we really haven't addressed before, Not in my readings anyway. Man Oh Man, I'm glad I did mention how my day started, but Ashamed now of not having the best knowledge available. Especially with search engines like "Google" and "Yahoo" & "Ask" and all the internet vast information sites.

    It's okay, I had heard that toothpaste wasn't safe for dogs, but wasn't 100 % sure, so looked it up to make sure and I know that it's not supposed to be used by children under the age if 6 either, for the same reasons, it is poison if swallowed. I have a 5 year old Grandson who uses a child's toothpaste. This is how we all learn, and learn from each other. I'm also all about the mouth and teeth hygiene as I am a Dental Asistant , and I also brush my bullies teeth, but I also have them scaled as well.

    I am sure they would've had to consume the tube to be poisonous...and the dab on the brush might've been intestinal distressing...but if this is the worst thing that happens...you are Golden! don't you dare beat yourself up!


    That's for US to do!



    Did I tell you my dogs love..love..love avocados...yup....not poisonous! Unless they eat the tree...not happening.

    LOL I bought doggy tooth paste and toothbrush and Sheldon loves having his teeth brushed and how it started was he kept coming in the bathroom when we were brushing our teeth and he paid such great attention I finally looked at him and said What? You want Mommy to brush your teeth so I got his tooth paste and tooth brush out and low and behold I brushed his teeth and he loved it he walks around smiling his bully smile after I brush his teeth like he is so proud. Just have patience and you will win this war.

    R.I.P. Duece Man 9-13-14 Gone but not forgotten, always in our hearts! Till we meet again over the Bridge, Mommy misses you.

    This was quite possibly one of the funniest stories I've ever read!!!! @Casper you have a way of telling these amazingly vivid stories

    I say now that Rambo's in your house we need to pitch a reality show for you guys I know I would be tuning in just to watch all these sheninagans

    Also please don't get down on yourself about the toothpaste. We all have our moments sometimes. Besides maybe thats why the boys snatched the tooth brush heads off to tip you off
