Start brushing now to get Rex used to it. Use a soft baby toothbrush or a finger brush.
This is a finger brush, it will have soft rubber "bristles".

as Pauline said, the finger brush is good. Start brushing them first by using just your finger to get them used to the routine. I use the finger brush and also a brush that has three heads that surround the tooth. I got it at Petsmart or Petco.

A groomer friend once told me if you wrap a fabric band aid round your finger then use dog toothpaste, that's a good gentle way to brush and you can really feel what you are doing.

A good doggie only toothpaste is a must, im sure dogs arnt meant to have our flouride toothpaste. i use a poultry flavour one(yuk!) but my girl likes it. you can get them from your vets or online ie zooplus etc. Good advice here on starting with a finger brush& i have a babies toothbrush i use with Rubes:)

Our vet recommends brushing every day - which in my universe isn't likely to happen...:rolleyes:
Alice has all or almost all of her adult teeth now I think, she is 6 months... I actually found one of her little teeth & saved it... Jokingly told my hubby I was going to make a necklace with it... :lpy: haha... He really rolled his eyes... :biggrin:

How cute! I wish I could've found Brian's baby teeth, but he must have swallowed them.
