Default Toothpaste suggestions?

Any suggestions for good dog toothpaste? Are they all about the same? Natural ingredients vs. Artificial?

Help would be appreciated.

It probably doesn't matter. I was never able to get my dog to cooperate when it comes to brushing teeth so I just give her something to chew on like a nylabone or rawhide. Chewing on something like that probably works better at removing plaque then brushing.

I do give them RMBs, but I was looking to brush also.

i use a soft toothbrush *i have a med soft one if she gets stains* and i use baking soda. just have a baggy of it and i get the brush wet and stick the bristles into the soda. it works really well and while her breath isn't minty it doesn't smell bad.

RMB's are "raw meaty bones" like ribs, chicken backs, turkey necks, knuckles, etc. They work amazingly well to clean teeth.

I've never had much luck with brushing and just stick to RMB's/raw and bully sticks.

I think the enzymatic ones are preferable (do they all have enzymes?). I got some at the vet for my cats but I think you can get it online, too -- the C.E.T. brand.

My dog is still young and doesn't have any plaque. I honestly wonder if the digestive enzyme supplements he gets (not for his teeth!) help -- his teeth are gorgeous -- or if it's just age (he's coming up on 1.5 years).
