The Story Behind the Dental Wipe
This product was developed for cleaning Sunny and Taylor’s teeth. We wanted something that was easy to use, actually worked and felt comfortable using. We tried the products on the market and weren't 100% satisfied with any of them. The results of the products researched and tested on our dogs are listed below. Obviously, results may vary depending upon the dog.
Toothbrush and Toothpaste: Sunny would not let me put the toothbrush in her mouth, but licked off the toothpaste she thought was yummy. Taylor would let me put it in her mouth but squirmed the whole time – making brushing not very effective.
Rubber Finger with Bristles: This to me is a hazard as it could come off and be swallowed. When I tried it on Sunny and Taylor, they took to this better as it was my finger and not a totally foreign object in their mouth. However, the rubber doesn’t allow for the ability to know where you are rubbing.
Arm & Hammer Dental Finger Wipes– Sunny and Taylor did not mind this again because it fits over my finger and is not a totally foreign object to them. However, the Caution label on product reads: “Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of reach of children. Store at room temperature. Not intended for human use.” With these warnings, I did not feel comfortable using it.
Ora-Clens Dental Wipes– I did not actually try this as I would have had to order it online. However, it is similar to the Arm & Hammer Product with a similar Caution label, but is just a round pad.
Based on the testing, we developed a doggy dental cleaner that we are much happier with.
And, prevention is much cheaper than going to the dental vet.
