Dexter digs getting his teeth brushed. My dog truly, madly, deeply accepts a toothbrush and we brush at least once a day, seven days a week. I did the same thing for my last Cocker Spaniel. Neither dog has ever needed a professional cleaning under anesthesia.
I no longer call them statistics when revealing some of the sad realities of our beloved dogs. Periodontal disease is the most common clinical condition in cats and dogs even though it’s completely preventable. The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) says that periodontal disease affects 85% of dogs over 5 years old.
What if there was a way to get your dog’s teeth clean without brushing? The folks at Emmi-Pet have a solution for pet parents who want to brush but perhaps don’t want to struggle with the brushing motion.
Fidose of Realities
According to Emmi-Petg, their ultrasonic toothbrush is:
- Reaches gum pockets
- Is harmless for people and pets
- Functions with an output of only 0.2 watts
- Does not vibrate or make noise to scare the dog
Regardless of the device used, dogs who have never had their teeth brushed before may not be immediately joyful and accepting. Read this for dogs who hate their teeth brushed.
Emmi-Pet in Action
When you receive the Emmi-Pet system, here’s what you get:
All sorts of pretties for pearly canine whites, right?
See how clean Dexter’s chompers are?
If your dog is accustomed to teeth brushing, read on. If not, be sure to read dogs who hate their teeth brushed first.
With the fully charged brush (takes about 24 hours to fully boost the charge), start the teeth cleaning process. You simply hold the brush head against the surface of your dog’s teeth for about 5 to 10 seconds, moving on to the next position. You could actually span 2 to 3 teeth at a time.
DO NOT BRUSH the teeth or the ultrasound technology will be ineffective.
This process is designed to be gentle on gums and enamel, so dogs will not be upset by a brushing motion.
You will repeat this for all surfaces, including the insides, and that’s it.
Clean and repeat at least weekly.
You must use the toothpaste from Emmi-Pet for the system to work.
Brush head replacements are available.
