Dog tooth paste doesn't work period! Start either at at a young age or after a cleaning with coconut oil on the brush. As my vet was surprise how clean his teeth were at 10.3 years of age. It cleared up his lip fold problem also.

Coconut oil changes the mouth PH so the bad bacteria die.


Oil pulling reduced counts of Streptococcus mutans bacteria – a significant contributor to tooth decay – in the plaque and saliva of children. Researchers concluded, "Oil pulling can be used as an effective preventive adjunct in maintaining and improving oral health."
Oil pulling significantly reduced plaque, improved gum health and reduced aerobic mircoorganisms in plaque among adolescent boys with plaque-induced gingivitis
Oil pulling is as effective as mouthwash at improving bad breath and reducing the microorganisms that may cause it.
Oil pulling benefits your mouth, in part, via its mechanical cleaning action. Researchers noted, "The myth that the effect of oil-pulling therapy on oral health was just a placebo effect has been broken and there are clear indications of possible saponification and emulsification process, which enhances its mechanical cleaning action."

I brush with it 5 to 10 minutes a night. Then it's Oliver's turn.
