Dental Wipes


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a brand of dental wipes they like and can recommend? My wishlist is textured, some component to kill bacteria, minimal ingredients (would prefer no peppermint oil, etc), and made in the USA. Not too much to ask, right? :lol

Hadn't even known these exist. Now I'm disappointed no one has responded. I've only seen toothbrushes. Have you tried any yet?

Though now I'm thinking of just cutting a small piece of microfiber to try as a reusable wipe. Could use one of the various liquids or pastes on it. Hmmm...

I ordered some that are arriving today or tomorrow. I'll report back although I imagine it will take some time before I know how well they work. 

 

Violet's dentist suggested them as an alternative to the water, which she's not a fan of. Violet's teeth are bad and she's 12 1/2 now. I've never been consistent with brushing because we both find it aversive. :lol This seems like it will be less painful for both of us so the hope is we can prevent her from needing any more dentals. :goodluck

Just a quick update that I ended up ordering these dental wipes from Bluestem:

https://www.chewy.com/bluestem-oral-care-dental-dog-cat/dp/233920

I've been using them for a week or so (maybe a week and a half?) and I am already seeing noticeable improvement. There is actually tartar (or plaque?) visible on the wipes after I use them and Violet's canines especially are noticeably cleaner.

The dogs also don't mind them. I've been giving treats after wiping each section and gradually doing more teeth per treat. They actually line up when I pull the bottle out. :lol

Definitely recommend.

Did you ever try a finger brush (rubber thimble-lIke thing)? I'm curious about how these compare. 

I haven't. We did try brushing with a regular kids toothbrush, but basically we all found it aversive so I didn't keep it up. :lol The veterinary dentist suggested this as an alternative and I'm so glad she did!

I'm so glad to learn about these! Will definitely give them a try. Sheba is almost 14 (Jan 23), and I'm going to skip her dental next spring because her hips are failing and I don't want her anaesthetized anymore. I use dental rinse, chews, and spray but haven't cleaned her teeth myself. Better late than never with these I suppose.

I haven’t tried the wipes yet, they are going on my next Chewy order, but I have tried the rubber finger thing. I have found that it was about as acceptable to the dogs as a toothbrush, and since none of mine were happy with the toothbrush, we never used it long enough to see if it worked.

That was basically my motivation as well. Violet has had horrible teeth, but this dental only required 1 extraction and the vet said her remaining teeth are in pretty good shape. Since Violet is 12 1/2 we're hoping to possibly avoid needing to sedate her for a dental again. My bank account would certainly appreciate it since her dentals run us around $3K each! :gmark
