I was sick of looking at the back of store-bought dog toothpaste and seeing ingredients that are a million letters long and you have absolutely no idea what on earth they are. This recipe is all natural, can be made with ingredients from your pantry, and takes just minutes! We treat ourselves to glorious organic, fresh products- why not our pups?
This recipe aims to make brushing your dog’s teeth an easier experience. No more pups trying to squirm away because you’re putting something not-so-pleasant in their mouths, instead this tastes good and the consistency is easy to brush with. Plus, the ingredients aren’t just for taste. Coconut oil is great for digestion and your pups’ gums, baking soda and cinnamon are gently abrasive to remove plaque from your dog’s teeth, mint and parsley are wonderful breath fresheners, and tea tree oil is anti-bacterial!
1. Pop all of the ingredients in a food processor. Combine well.
2. There is no second step. How awesome is that?
All you need is a pea-sized amount on a doggie toothbrush, brush away! Don’t forget the tongue! Make sure to watch the embedded video below to check out how I make it, with my pups looking on!
