So, naturally our pets would like to know who you think did the best.
I use a little brush for the cats that I got from our vet with the special toothpaste for animals. DO NOT USE human toothpaste for them. For Abby though, I use a regular size brush because it's easier to reach back farther and I get to keep all my fingers!
They all like the poultry taste of it but it's hard sometimes to actually get it on their teeth before they lick it off the brush! I introduced it gradually by letting them just lick it at first. Then the next week, I let the cats actually play with the little brush, seeing that it wouldn't hurt them. Finally, I put the brush in their mouth and gave them a treat afterward. Then now we are up to what you see in the video. I actually get to put some toothpaste on their teeth with the brush.
Do you brush your pets' teeth? Some days I try, but don't feel very successful. Last time Manny ran away from me and I had to chase him around. I finally gave up and tried again later which worked somewhat. He's usually the hardest one so that's why I was so surprised in the video when he was actually cooperative.
