I love brushing my dog’s teeth ~ said no one, ever!
Trying to be a good mom to my three Chi’s meant trying to keep their teeth and gums healthy. THAT meant brushing daily. What a struggle! It started with struggling with them daily, to every other day, to weekly, to monthly to NEVER!
I don’t like to admit that, but, there it is. I am pretty sure that I’m not alone in that.
Then, a life saver came along. I found a DIY homemade pet toothpaste. It is fantastic! No more struggling to brush their teeth, or worse, feeling guilty for NOT brushing their teeth.
It is so easy and only takes a few seconds each day. There is even one for getting rid of gingivitis. Instead of a brush, you just rub it on with gauze. So easy!
I would love to claim credit for this, but it is from Dr. Karen Becker.
Here are the recipe and Dr. Becker’s video.
Combine in a jar:
2 TBL Baking Soda
2 TBL Coconut Oil ∗
1 Drop Peppermint Oil
For Gingivitis, add:
10 Drops Colloidal Silver
1 tsp. Colostrum
1/2 tsp Tumeric Root
Mix well and rub on your dog’s teeth with gauze
∗ Coconut oil is good for many things including skin and coat
