What kind of toothbrush should I use for my dog or cat? Sep 13, 2020

Pet specific toothbrushes are available at pet suppliers both online and in-store as well as veterinary clinics. Another thing that can be tried is a soft baby’s toothbrush from the drug store. Tooth brushing can also be performed using finger brushes as long as the bristles are very soft and there is no chance of being bitten.
