My dog's going in for some dental work tmr (cleaning, tartar removal and they might pull out some cavities). He's had gingivitis for a while too, poor pup. He'll be put under full anesthetics for the dental procedure. I think the whole thing is going to cost us around $600-700.
Do you brush your pet's teeth? How do you do it? Tooth paste? How often?
I've tried using a tooth brush, my dog seemed to like chewing on it but I thought it might be too rough on his gums. So I use like a cotton puff (square ones, not the ball cotton puffs) and wrap that around my finger and rub at his teeth. Elmo has a chicken flavoured tooth paste but I don't use that often though he likes the taste, I don't like the smell of it.
