Introducing 4-Legger Dental Powder - Our Safe and Non-Toxic Dog Toothpaste Alternative!

We recently took one of our furry family members to the veterinarian for titer testing. As part of the check-up our veterinarian did a dental exam. She remarked, "Her teeth look good for her age. You must be brushing them. What toothpaste do you use?" 

Our veterinarian knows how careful we are about the ingredients we use both on and in our dogs so I think she was a little surprised that we'd use toothpaste.  She was right! We don't use toothpaste! We use our own dental powder! 

Just like with our dog shampoo, we have a long list of ingredients that we think shouldn't be in dog toothpaste.

Here are some of the ingredients you do NOT want in your dog's toothpaste:  

  • Alcohol
  • Methyl paraben
  • Sorbitol
  • Stevia (any artificial sweetner)
  • Artificial Color
  • Artificial Flavor
  • Sodium copper chloraphyllin
  • Sodium hexametaphosphate
  • Antibacterials (like Tricolsan)
  • Formaldehyde releasing preservatives (like Diazolidinyl urea)

This visit to our vet was on of those BFO - Blinding Flash of the Obvious - moments. We should be offering our dental powder to our customers!

So, here it is!  Our true old fashioned, all natural toothpaste alternative with just three simple ingredients!
