How Do You Clean Your Dog's Teeth? #DogDentalHealth

Dr. Oz the Terrier is back to wish you a Happy Pet Dental Health Month.  It’s time to brush up on your dental health and show us your pearly whites!

Oz the Terrier Time to Brush Up on Dog Dental Health

During the month, I will be writing more about the different ways you can clean your dog’s teeth and why it is so important to maintain his/her dental health but for today I am curious:

How do you clean your dog’s teeth?
Do you use a toothbrush and toothpaste? 
Do you have a fancy electric toothbrush for your dog? 
Do you take your dog for anesthesia-free cleanings? 
Does your dog chew raw bones or dental treats? 
Do you use a combination of the above? 
Tell us in the comments!

I use a combination of a once-in-a-blue-moon brushing, chewing raw bones and chewing dental treats.  My favorite dental treats are of course, Whimzees.  They are vegetarian so they do not have anything I am allergic too.  I love the fun shapes too, especially the alligators.

Dr. Oz the Terrier uses Whimzees dental chews for good dog dental health

To get Pet Dental Health Month started on the right paw, one reader can win Whimzees Dental Chews (fulfilled by Oz the Terrier).  Giveaway is open everywhere to ages 18 years or older.  Please follow the instructions in the giveaway tool.

  3. we use greenies and a toothbrush... nevertheless on wednesday the vet probably has to take a look on my chompers.... hope efurrything is ok...

  4. WE get our Teefs BRUSHED with Chicken Flavored Paste... WE like it a LOT... our mom uses teefsbrushes that are fur little Peeps... can you believe that??? BUTT we like it anyway... and we get Greenies... Never seen these dental cleaning thingys before...
    FEBRUARY is TEEFS Month...

  5. Shiner loves to chew on toys and treat chews too. She gets her teeth brushed too! Whimzees are tasty, or so I hear. I think I have one stored away somewhere... going to have to dig it out.

  6. We use dental chews and brush their teeth.

    Did you guys post the winners of the Wuv you treats?

  7. It is hard to look at our teeth let alone brush them. I love to chew and have a variety. I have nylabones and a benebone. I also LOVE Whimzees and Himalayan chews which I get to have on a monitored basis. We also have some dental chews that Bailey & Hazel get to chew on
    Bailey & Hazel too

    Pee es
    we do have nice warm fleece coats - but for some reason Bailey & Hazel won't go potty when they have them on!

  8. Bentley loves to have his teeth brushed and after a lot of time and patience, Pierre will stand in line to have his brushed. ☺

  9. My dogs aren't really thrilled about getting their teeth cleaned, and with four rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds it can be really hard. I do try to give them dental chews when I can, and use an oral dental gel and spray (which they don't really like, too).

  10. Oz one thing for sure your pearly whites are gorgeous and you have a million dollar smile

  11. We get our teeth brushed with our special toothbrushes and doggie-toothpaste! My brush has a princess on it and is PINK and purple, and Maggie's has planets on it. I use poultry flavor toothpaste, but Maggie likes the minty kind. I don't care for that one.

  12. we are not good about getting our teefers clean, mom has toothpaste that tastes like chicken but we still make it hard for her. we ordered something this month from Mr. Chewy to help.

  13. I get a Milkbone Dental Chew every day. Plus Mom brushes my teeth with poultry flavored toothpaste and a 3-sided toothbrush EVERY SINGLE NIGHT! Ugh. The woman is obsessed.

    Love and licks,

  14. Mama brushes our teeth every week
    Lily & Edward

  15. We are loyal teeth brushers, with a few good chews on the side. Our chompers are all looking pretty good.

  16. Ruby loves Whimzees, too. Because she received such poor care for the first half of her life, her teeth are a mess. Some treats are too tough for her, but Whimzees are perfect texture for her. She is able to chew them and they don't seem to bother her the way others do.

  17. Well, we have doggie toothpaste/toothbrushes...we have doggie dental scrapers (yes, they are actually pretty tolerant of it!!) sometimes we use water additive for tarter and they love nylabones! We have tried WHIMZEES and they love it!!

  18. Oz look so cute with toothbrush whimzee in his mouth! :D I got toothbrush and gel for Happy and he's so scared of it! It's almost impossible to clean his teeth! Although he loves chewing rawhide after his meal. :) We're thinking about stocking up some Whimzees! Last time Happy tried and he loved it! Especially alligator one is so cute! ;) Thank you for hosting a giveaway! <3

  19. they get lots of bones to chew on and I brush their teeth
