doggy dental glove

…well, you try to find a NHS dentist for your best friend.
  [vote for,

a disposable glove that is fine and sensitive enough for you to be able to feel around in Fido’s mouth, explore every canine, massage those gums; soft enough for your doggy not to complain if there is a raw nerve or a tender spot.

each fingertip has a slightly abrasive tip to scrape away at any build-up of plaque.

chicken / beef doggy toothpaste with every pack.

clean those teeth! [hazel, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]


       Would saved chewed fingers and be much easier than using a toothbrush. [+]

       This idea sounded so good, that I figured it had to be baked. I can find grooming gloves for fur, but none for teeth. Good job [po].

       I've got a toothbrush for Pete and Dud which fits on my finger. I can clean their little teeth by rubbing them with the fish-flavoured toothpaste on said finger-brush. They hate it, but they have small mouths so don't need a whole glove. If you've got a Great Dane you'd probably need a doggy dental sleeve.

       Croissant for anything that promotes canine oral hygiene. I regularly scale and polish dogs' teeth under anaesthetic and it isn't pretty. The expense ($400 to $1000 depending on rankness) means that the teeth must be really foul before most owners can justify it. A couple of days ago I cracked off a lump of tartar from a fairly nice looking tooth to discover that it had no gum on the outside and hardly any bone left to hold it. He lost thirteen in the end. Brushing is a wonderful thing to do but is usually only possible if started as a puppy. Dental chews and kibble do a lot of good as well. The worst gobs tend to be attached to little dogs whose owners think a soft food diet is kinder.
