Brushing your dog's teeth is the gold standard for oral dental care!
Most oral care chew solutions contain sodium hexametaphosphate (SHMP) - linked to kidney, liver and thyroid issues.
Gel and spray oral care solutions rely on alcohol that dry the mouth and gums and destroy beneficial bacteria. These shortcuts just aren't safe long term. We didn't want artificial sweeteners, fluoride, alcohol, artificial flavors and colors in our dog's mouth.
So, we went back to the basics for what works! Nothing artificial or synthetic - just good old fashioned ingredients that safely work to naturally improve your dog's oral hygiene.
Regularly brushing your dog's teeth with sea salt, baking soda and peppermint is a safe and natural way to ensure strong teeth and gums, break down plaque buildup, and protect against bad breath.

Sea Salt, Baking Soda (USP Sodium Bicarbonate), Peppermint Essential Oil
Sea salt is packed with minerals (calcium, magnesium, silicon, phosphorus, sodium, nickel, iodine & iron) that reduces inflammation, strengthens gums, and neutralizes acids. Sea salt also increases the production of saliva allowing your dog's natural antibacterials to safeguard their enamel!
Baking Soda, or pure sodium bicarbonate is highly alkaline, and because of this it creates an environment that is not favorable to bacteria while neutralizing acids in the mouth (acids cause tooth decay and dental cavities). For centuries baking soda has worked to naturally whiten teeth and freshen breath. It's abrasive enough to wash your dog's teeth of oral plaque without deteriorating their tooth enamel.
Peppermint Essential Oil makes your dog's breath minty fresh and is extremely effective at killing anaerobic bacteria, they type of bacteria that thrive in a low oxygen environment such as the mouth - protecting your dog's mouth from gum disease.
We've found that dogs like routines and while brushing teeth isn't a ton of fun, making it part of their routine is the best way to get them on board! Make it as fun as you can and lavish them with praise! Our 4-Leggers stand in line for teeth brushing!
Start by letting your dog watch you prepare the very best reward a human can offer (this will vary by dog). Wet toothbrush & apply dental powder. Lift your dog's muzzle to gently brush teeth and gums. When done - give reward!
