Jeanne explains what to look for and things to consider when choosing a toothpaste for dogs and cats.
She is a founding member and former president of the Academy of Veterinary Dental Technicians – A NAVTA Specialty Group which certifies, trains and mentors credentialed technicians to be specialists in dentistry.
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.
