    Question Dental health - Toothpaste?

    Hi everyone,

    Anyone know what is the best toothpaste to use on Cavaliers.
    The one I am using at the moment doesn't seem up to much although it was expensive enough.

    Gus has a problem with his saliva and he has to have his teeth cleaned in the vets every year or so. He just had them done last week and they are sparkling so I would like to keep them that way .

    I've tried the usual pet store brands and logic gel ( which was very expensive,but didn't really work).

    Any suggestions?

    Default Teeth

    My last Cavalier (now at the rainbow bridge) had teeth issues as she got older and I had to get the cleaned quite often. My vet told me to use baby or young childrens toothpaste because it is designed to be swallowed and is fine for their belly. I used it for approx a year before she died, we had no problems and it kept her teeth pearly white

    Hi

    I should have thought about baby toothpaste the doggy variety is not that cheap ,i have used logic-gel since the girls were pups but its hard to say if its had any effect and I also give them a small logic-gel chew and have just started them on plaque off to see if that helps ,not that they have any problems anyway its all just preventive medicine , i think.

    I have just changed insurance companies from Pet Pals to Pet Plan and one of the conditions is an annual dental check up can somebody pls advise what this entails i presume its just a visual inspection and not a general anesthetic unless something needs to be done.

    I don't know about baby toothpaste but would imagine young childrens toothpaste would have fluoride in it which I think that's toxic to dogs

    I used Logic Oral Hygiene Gel or Virbac Enzymatic toothpaste.
