    Default teeth brushing

    so today was the first time I've tried brushing Herman's teeth so he'll get used to it - he loved it, I think. I first used the little finger thing to brush and the little sucker bit my finger as he was trying to "chew" the tooth paste! OUCH! So then I moved to the tooth brush, which he also seemed to like.

    but i'm not clear how much tooth paste and how long I should brush. Is he supposed to rinse afterwards?

    I'm using the Virbac CET kit.

    I use the dental pads from Foster & Smith, they hated the toothbrush LOL so great start on Herman letting you actually brush his ... it takes a few minutes at least to get to all those teeth but I would just say judge the length of time by how he tolerates it don't brush so long that it isn't fun for him anymore but still try to reach all this teeth. oh yeah and a nice drink of fresh water afterwards makes mine happy.

    I just started brushing Bob's teeth. He always watched me at the sink so I thought I would give it a try. He loves it! I just use a little tooth paste (vanilla for dogs) Then I cup my hands and give him some water. Hubby says one of these days he's gonna spit it out like I do to rinse. I don't think it matters if they rinse, I'd offer him some water and see lol

    I'm curious about brushing teeth and the frequency. Duchess is on raw diet and this is suppose to keep their teeth exceptionally clean. How often should I still brush her teeth?
