An appropriate toothpaste for dogs and cats must be labeled for dogs and cats. Toothpaste is available in pet suppliers and veterinary clinics. If your pet has food allergies to certain ingredients, remember to check the label before purchasing or have your veterinary clinic dispense a product that is best for your pet.
