    Default Do you brush your bully's teeth?

    I used to brush Mr. D's when he was a puppy - he didn't care for it and just wanted to eat the toothpaste - as he got older, we got very lax on that. After a very expensive dental and 3 teeth and an abscess (on the bill it says "tumor" which I need to ask about this week when we go for recheck) removed at only age 5, I am going to start again when his mouth is healed.

    Just curious what you all do here, and any good techniques? I want to get a brush I can fit on my finger to do this I think, too. The toothpaste they gave me is a vanilla mint one, whereas the one I had when he was a puppy was peanut butter flavored (and gross and brown looking, lol!)

    When HRH came here to rule we had the vet do her teeth when he redid a hernia. Brushing her teeth didnt go so well but she loves to gnaw on hard rubber bones. We buy the ones that are supposed to be good for dental health. The result is that she was at the vet a couple of weeks ago and he asked if we had been brushing her teeth because they were in such a good condition.

    Sad to say we do not brush their teeth either, but they do love to chew on their Nylabones and Kong bone so that helps to keep them clean.

    We don't brush Bully teeth here, either. We have not had any dental problems here. They do chew on their nylabone a lot!

    Mr. D loves to chew, but I've been afraid of the Nylabone (that he could somehow swallow it) - what size do you all use? He does get meat bones occasionally from his daddy, but those scare me to death as well.

    i had every intention of brushing their teeth, and have the little finger toothbrushes and doggy toothpaste...but sadly it has ended up with the kong.

    maybe i'll start again (humph!)

    I just had Gunny at the vet last week, he said his teeth are nice for an older Bullie, he gets lots of bones.
