I noticed the dog toothpaste is very expensive. Could I use baking soda?
Yeah you can use that. But I must warn you - the chicken flavor toothpaste is a way to get them to "like" having their teeth brushed.
I always give a milkbone or other "favorite treat" RIGHT after brushing, before I even put the brush down, so they know that it's treat time when it's time to brush. They actually line up to get their teeth worked on and while they hate it they know a treat is coming!
You could also just brush with a plain toothbrush. It's better than nothing...
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
