Your Tooth Tool Kit
A toothbrush specially made for pets or a children's soft-bristle toothbrush will do the job. Pet toothpaste is optional, but never use a product intended for humans. Pet toothpaste's sole function is to taste good so your cat or dog opens her mouth, Dr. Bannon says. Alternatively, you can use water or chicken-or beef-flavored low-sodium broth for dogs. Excess water from a can of tuna entices cats.
