You can try some of these supplies! Dr. Brite offers products that are perfect for taking care of your pet’s oral health. They are simple to use, so even if your best friend does not like having their teeth cleaned, it will be over and done within a matter of seconds.
These are the best items to take care of your pet’s teeth.
Why Clean a Pet’s Teeth
If your pet has bad oral health, this can cause more problems than bad breath. When you do not remove plaque from their teeth, it can turn into tartar. This irritates the gums and may result in an infection.
Plaque is easy to brush off at home, so you can help your pet by cleaning their teeth regularly so that it does not get to that state. This also prevents tooth loss from decay and other problems.
It is important to note that bad breath can be a sign of illness in your pet, so always keep an eye out. Call your vet if you suspect something is wrong.
Cleaning your pet’s teeth at home with these Dr. Brite products is easy, so let us get started.
Pet Pure: Oral Cleansing Spray
The first product that we would like to talk about is our natural Pet Pure: Oral Cleansing Spray. This cruelty-free product can be used with both cats and dogs to fight tartar build-up and freshen your pet’s breath. It has a parsley taste that pets like, plus, you will not have to endure your pet’s bad breath anymore when they decide to give you kisses.
To use it, simply spray it into your pet’s mouth a couple of times. This is an easy and convenient way to improve your pet’s oral health. The natural ingredients are good for promoting a healthier oral system.
This includes vitamin C, which promotes gum health. Green algae to reduce plaque, and natural parsley to help freshen your pet’s breath. Overall, this is a good solution to keeping up with your pet’s oral care.
Pet Pure: Teeth & Gum Cleaning Pen
The Pet Pure: Teeth & Gum Cleaning Pen is perfect for both cats and dogs. It is designed to help remove plaque build-up, which can help with inflamed gums. This pen is easy to use and includes natural ingredients that are safe for your pet.
To use the pen, remove the cap. Twisting the bottom will release some gel onto the soft silicone bristles. Then, you can clean their teeth in gentle, circular motions. Make sure not to feed or water your pet for at least 30 minutes after applying the gel.
This works well at improving your pet’s gum health, while also freshening their breath. The gel includes parsley and vitamin C as well- natural ingredients that are helpful in pet oral care.
Overall, this is a wonderful way to help keep your pet healthy. The pen will last you a long time too, with it holding between 20 and 30 applications of the gel.
Pet Pure: Oral Wellness Bundle
If you need a complete oral care system, then Dr. Brite offers both of those great products together in a bundle. That way, you can be sure that your pet’s oral health is taken care of.
Both remove plaque, contain natural ingredients, soothe gums, and get rid of bad breath. If you work on improving your pet’s oral health at home, you can save on tooth cleaning costs from the vet.
If you would like to try both of these oral care supplies, then purchasing the bundle can save you some money, instead of buying them separately.
Overall, this is what we recommend the most. It is an efficient way to get your pet used to oral health care and works well. Soon enough, your pet might even enjoy having their teeth brushed.
What Else You Should Know About Pet Oral Care
When it comes to the health of your pet, you will want to know what to look out for. Oral care is just as important as the rest of your pet’s health, so be sure you do not overlook it.
When you take your pet to their yearly vet visit, you will want to be sure the vet also checks their teeth over. If you notice any of these issues, you will want to take your pet in sooner rather than later:
- Eating less than normal or not eating at all
- Bleeding from the mouth
- Swollen mouth
- Bad Breath
- Broken teeth
- Baby teeth that did not fall out
- Drooling more than usual
- Not chewing correctly
These can be signs of more complicated issues in your pet's oral health. You will also want to pay attention to your pet’s mood on top of those. When your pet is in pain from dental issues, they may act differently or become agitated.
Be careful when checking your pet’s mouth- if they are in pain, they may bite because they are afraid.
How to Keep a Pet’s Mouth Clean
You will want to clean your pet’s teeth daily with a product designed for them. This might be done with a treat, toy, oral spray, or oral care pen. It is going to depend on what your pet is comfortable with. Some do not like having their mouths cleaned, so you might have to come up with another solution.
If you have never cleaned your pet’s teeth, you will want to make sure that they are used to you touching their mouth before you try using a product on them. Start by comforting them and petting them, while occasionally touching their mouth.
When they seem comfortable with you touching their teeth, let them smell the cleaning pen before you use it on them. Slowly and softly rub it on their teeth. You might not be able to clean all of their teeth the first time you try, but you do not want to stress them out- or it will be harder to clean their teeth the next time.
Cats are harder to get adjusted than dogs are, although it is not impossible. You will want to be sure that you are always working gently with your pet, so you do not scare them out of having their teeth cleaned.
Always be sure to use a product that is safe for your pet! Your minty toothpaste will smell strong to your dog and the ingredients can make them feel sick. This would require a trip to the vet, so be certain you are using products designed for your pet.
In short, Dr. Brite has a selection of oral pet care supplies for you to check out. They work with both cats and dogs- and are always natural. The ingredients are not toxic to animals and they can help fight plaque and be preventative towards oral diseases.
So, if you want to find products made just for your furry friend, Dr. Brite can help! We take care of formulating these oral products because we understand how important your pet’s health is to you.

1. Can I use a human toothbrush on my dog?
You can buy a dog toothbrush at a pet store or use a soft-bristled toothbrush for humans. A dog toothpaste is also recommended. Use a dog-specific toothpaste because human toothpaste can be harmful to your dog.
2. What dissolves tartar on teeth?
Making a paste from baking soda and salt is an effective home treatment for removing dental calculus. Brushing your teeth with baking soda and salt softens the calculus, making it easier to remove. Rub the mixture gently on your teeth with your toothbrush.
3. Do carrots help clean dogs teeth?
If you feed your dog carrots in large chunks, he will chew on them rather than swallow them whole. They are a delicious and crunchy food. In addition to eliminating leftover food and plaque from the tooth surfaces, this chewing mechanism helps your dog's teeth and gums stay healthy.
