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

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!

If you are new to the use of essential oils, welcome! 

Essential oils are therapeutically beneficial for both you and your pets.

Unfortunately, the quality of essential oils is a confusing smorgasbord with marketing that spans from honesty all the way to misleading claims and outright lies. It can be difficult to find essential oils that are safe to diffuse around your pets or yourself if you are searching based upon what is on the bottle or what the website says or worse, based exclusively on price.

We've got a quick "how to" on the use of pet safe essential oils you can use to make your house smell fresh and clean!
