LOL.

I brush my dogs' teeth every night when we're settling on the couch for a little TV. It takes about 3 minutes or less to do all three mouths. I don't know if it's about a lot of teeth crammed into small mouths or not because Chuli has had 5 teeth pulled when they got so bad at one time. So she has lot of empty spaces and they still get yucky. I'm really buckling down. I think the best would be to brush them right after each meal. It must be a genetic component with these little dogs. All my bigger dogs have never had issues with their teeth and I never brushed them in the past. But these little guys...I've had to get a cleaning from the vet..twice for Chuli and once so far for Jose`. It's very expensive but it sure gets them cleaned up. And it's very dangerous to their whole health to let that tarter and bacteria build up. And I feed a kibble that has no grain. They do get some other stuff though sometimes, like a few bites of whatever I had for dinner, depending on what it is.

wow this is great to know... If I had realized that doing agility would have such an impact on my dogs dental health I would have started a long time ago... I am going to start right away, do you think it will still help?

It might not have been spam. There's no advertising. It might have been a post meant for another thread, but put here by mistake. I've done that before.

yeah, just try brushing him every week and see if that helps... if not, get one of those dental bones or talk to your vet if those options dont work. good luck!
