Has anyone used coconut oil to clean teeth?
I have to admit I've been fairly lax with the Dude tooth cleaning,but I'm not impressed with the ingredients used in these "meat flavoured" dog toothpastes!
An elderly lady with a v snappy Maltese Terrier mentioned using coconut oil as tooth paste.
What do you all use to clean your doodles teeth?

Never knew about this Anny but I googled it and you can indeed use coconut oil.There are also other natural products available. I just use a salt solution on my dogs .

I have used coconut oil myself to clean my teeth but don't think the hounds would understand they needed to squelch it around their mouths then spit it out :lol: :lol:

I have always used Plaque Off - its a natural supplement that I add to their food a few times each week and it seems to work. My sister is always saying the dogs have better teeth than her :lol:

Thanks Linny, I think I will give it a go. ( although I know Mum always used a salt solution for her dogs.... how dilute do you make that?)
I also see that Dorwest do a Roast Dinner tooth paste....somehow I think Dude might like that! Anny

Plaque off? Interesting. So, no brushing required? Where do you buy that? Anny

Anny - I get mine from Zooplus when I order their food, but if you do a search online you can compare cost. Good luck :)

I use an enzyme based toothpaste - they seem to need the brushing and the enzymes carry on working afterwards.
