Has anyone tried these toothbrushes and if so I'd be interested to know if they work and any thoughts. Thanks. Smile

Hi Jacquie

Have you tried the bog standard human brush, I share one with Millie except that we each have our own brush head.

Thanks joy, I wanted the emmi-pet as being ultrasonic it doesn't make any noise or vibrate. Got a nuerotic spaniel with bacteria issues in her mouth and despite daily cleaning she has got tarter and will no longer let me scale them as she has been ill for a long time. The ultrasonic is supposed to gradually remove the tarter and kill bacteria. I did buy one anyway and I have to say only a week in, and not using it everyday, her teeth are getting so much better and the inflammation has gone! I think this is going to be a good investment despite the cost. She has a grade 4 heart murmer so trying to avoid anaesthesia. Another good thing - she doesn't mind it at all Very Happy

Jacqui, does it remove the tartar on the inside of the teeth as well? I find that the most difficult area to clean especially inside the lower ones with the tongue getting in the way!

I'm not sure as the problem with the spaniel is mostly tartar on the outside of the canines so that's what I have been concentrating on. I think it should as it's what the people who offer anaesthetic free dentals use. Have a look at this site and maybe contact the Lady as she seems to be very experienced with it:

I have to admit I didn't buy from her as I found it cheaper elsewhere.

Thanks Jacquie, that site was quite informative. She did seem to use a lot of toothpaste though. I suppose the test is to stop the dog licking it all off before the procedure has finished......!

Yes that is a problem but once you've got the brush in place it's not too bad if you can keep it still! I haven't been using as much toothpaste as she did though.
