Cash is 4 1/2 months old and brushing his teeth just isnt happening. He wants nothing to do with it. I've been trying since he was 9 weeks.

What is the best bone out there for keeping teeth clean, freshening breath, and removing tartar buildup?

Thanks...

We found that if we tire Molly out (take her for a long walk and then play with her flirt pole) then brush her teeth It is allot easier

raw bones are the best for white teeth...always supervise however.....make sure the size of the bone is adequate....you can also get raw knuckle bones that are cut....

I wouldn't feed marrow bones (or any of the weight bearing leg bones.) They are extremely hard and can easily chip or break a tooth. Plus many dogs get diarrhea after eating the marrow - it is nutritious but VERY rich, and can upset the digestive tract. Best option is a nice knuckle bone from the butcher.....
