February is Pet Dental Month, and this year I am happy to report that we’re a little better prepared to fight plaque, tartar and bad breath. #nastytrio
In the past I’ve let brushing their teeth “slip” way too often. #trifling
Looking back I realize this was probably because of the scuffles we’d have in the bathroom. #Ineverwon
Last year I wrote a post about RAW MARROW BONES as a natural way to manage and reduce plaque and tartar.
When Doodle Doc told me to give him a bone about once a week. I raced to the butcher only to gag at the smell of raw meat #justnotforme…
Harley even looked at the bones as if to say –
Hey lady – you gonna cook these or something? #barbecuemaybe
Even though we brush on occasion and I give them natural sticks to chew on, I saw plaque build-up and felt like I was letting my boys down.
But a couple of weeks ago things started to turn around. #ohyeahbaby
I finally found some products that are working like #abracadabra …
This is my fav. My magic toothbrush…
Much of my disenchantment with brushing their teeth had been the awkwardness with the toothbrush. This little gem allows me to grip it comfortably so I can really get all the way in the back without loosing it in their mouth (like the finger thingy). The brush is super soft and they seem to enjoy it. #eveninghighlight
They both prefer the vanilla flavored all natural tarter control toothpaste vs. the liver flavored I used in the past #metoo
Hanging out at my holistic store #mycheers talking dogs – health – etc… I mentioned my dismay about my less than stellar attention towards their dental care. They showed me a completely natural product made from seaweed that significantly complements ordinary oral hygiene care.
When I found out just a pinch of this powder sprinkled over their food would help eradicate plaque/tartar AND bad breath – I threw my debit card on the counter #bam
It’s only been about two weeks, and I just had to tell you.
- Their breath is truly #kissable
- Their teeth are starting to sparkle…
I am proud to say – brushing has become a daily routine and happy that they no longer run from me. #nomoredoodlerelays
This is NOT a product review – just me sharing a little #sumpinsumpin with you ❤️
But if you’re interested and want more information –
ONE MORE THING –
I wrote a story in January about an adorable Goldendoodle named Kramer who vanished in December. #remember? And many of you shared his story on your social media sites in hopes of helping.
WELL KRAMER HAS BEEN FOUND…
They said details will be available soon.
Who cares about details – I’m just tickled to doodle that he and his owner Nik will be reunited #happyendings
