    Do you brush your Frenchie's teeth?

    Hi , everyone. I am just curious if anyone brushes their Frenchie's teeth.
    Cosette has been with me 3 1/2 months and I just started a month ago doing it every night. She is getting use to it but does not like it.

    I use a rubber brush that you slide your finger behind it with pet toothpaste.
    Any wisdom you want to share is greatly appreciated.

    We haven't brushed Buster's teeth. He keeps them clean by chewing on nylabones and he eats kibble, not wet food that sticks to teeth.

    We don't brush ours either, but they are pretty clean because they like to chew their nylabones.

    Re: Do you brush your Frenchie's teeth?

    I have a 4 month old and I do brush his teeth, usually once a day if possible. I bought a pack that came with the toothpaste, finger brush and toothbrush. I started with the finger brush and now use the toothbrush. Jax doesn't love when I brush his teeth but he loves the toothpaste which makes it easier. You can try just putting a little toothpaste on your finger and let him lick it off then move up to using the finger brush.

    I'm pretty sure Stella would try to eat a toothbrush

    Re: Do you brush your Frenchie's teeth?

    Cosette is doing better with the brushing. She doesn't love it but she lets me do it. I would not have thought about brushing but when I adopted her, her first family gave me the pet paste and brushes so I thought why not .

    Talking Re: Do you brush your Frenchie's teeth?

    I just started brushing Q-Roux's teeth as I give her daily fresh fruit and I want to help diminish the sugars. She also chews Nylabones, kibble and an occasional rope toy (while supervised). She spends more time trying to chew the finger brush, which is a good distraction because I can give all of the teeth a quick brush before she gets too antsy. Just curious how often you brush your dog's teeth and do you use a finger brush or toothbrush? I'm nervous with the toothbrush as I'm afraid I may hit her gums or teeth with the hard part of the handle.

    I try to brush Jax's teeth at least 3 times a week. I started with the finger brush the first few times and then went to the toothbrush. I've never had any issues, he loves the toothpaste.

    Re: Do you brush your Frenchie's teeth?

    Just started with Chance now that the puppy teeth are gone, have to do it when he first gets up that is when he has the least energy and is a snuggle bunny.If I wait any longer both the brush and my fingers will not survive.

    I have "tooth and gum wipes" that virtually do the same thing as brushing.

    Even with dogs in my past, brushing is a lot harder than giving them a dental bone, so that they clean their own teeth.
