Best Toothbrush/Paste?

Hi all. Just wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a good toothbrush and toothpaste to use. I have tried using one of my old brushes (let's hope its the old one...I get them confused) and its a struggle. I see they have finger brushes, but I was a little skeptical of these.

You guys are the experts so...whatcha got? Thanks

If Rudy even suspects I have a toothbrush in my hand he takes off. I now use Petzlife Gel and gauze wrapped around my finger.

I got a dog for my husband. It was a good trade.

a fresh raw knucklebone is a great way to get the gunk off. Natural enzymes in the meat/bone will help break it down as well. The cartiledge is beneficial to the dog, all in all a great way to keep teeth pearly white!

I have never brushed Sage's teeth. I give him a fresh knuckle bone and we get comments all the time about his pearly white teeth.

Grocery store or butcher shop, meat processer. They call them soup bones too. Do not get smoked bones, they can splinter.

yep

I usually buy from the butcher because they are just a bit cheaper. I keep them in the freezer and give them frozen.
