Brushing your dog's teeth is the gold standard for oral dental care!
Most oral care chew solutions contain sodium hexametaphosphate (SHMP) - linked to kidney, liver and thyroid issues.
Gel and spray oral care solutions rely on alcohol that dry the mouth and gums and destroy beneficial bacteria. These shortcuts just aren't safe long term. We didn't want artificial sweeteners, fluoride, alcohol, artificial flavors and colors in our dog's mouth.
So, we went back to the basics for what works! Nothing artificial or synthetic - just good old fashioned ingredients that safely work to naturally improve your dog's oral hygiene.
Regularly brushing your dog's teeth with sea salt, baking soda and peppermint is a safe and natural way to ensure strong teeth and gums, break down plaque buildup, and protect against bad breath.
Makes your dog's breath minty fresh and is extremely effective at killing anaerobic bacteria, the type of bacteria that thrives in a low oxygen environment such as the mouth - protecting your dog's mouth from gum disease.
Highly alkaline, and because of this it creates an environment that is not favorable to bacteria while neutralizing acids in the mouth (acids cause tooth decay and dental cavities).
For centuries baking soda has worked to naturally whiten teeth and freshen breath. It's abrasive enough to wash your dog's teeth of oral plaque without deteriorating their tooth enamel.
Packed with minerals (calcium, magnesium, silicon, phosphorus, sodium, nickel, iodine & iron) that reduces inflammation, strengthens gums, and neutralizes acids.
Sea salt also increases the production of saliva allowing your dog's natural antibacterials to safeguard their enamel.

We've found that dogs like routines and while brushing teeth isn't a ton of fun, making it part of their routine is the best way to get them on board! Make it as fun as you can and lavish them with praise! Our 4-Leggers stand in line for teeth brushing!
Start by letting your dog watch you prepare the very best reward a human can offer (this will vary by dog). Wet toothbrush & apply dental powder. Lift your dog's muzzle to gently brush teeth and gums. When done - give reward!
Tips: Start with a few quick brushes of the front teeth and slowly add to the routine until you get all of their teeth!
Yes. The quality of essential oils is very important.
We work really hard to make sure our essential oils are unadulterated, safe, non-toxic and their essential oil constituent profiles are safe.
You use a very small amount of the dental powder on a soft bristle toothbrush.
This shampoo was wonderful but my dog is still itching. Made his fur so soft. He really enjoyed his both.
I don't know what my dog thinks about the fresh mint, but I love it :) His teeth look whiter. His breath was never bad, but I don't notice it at all now.
I have two dogs . A Aussie and a border collie. I love this powder. It really works great. The teeth are so white and no bad breath. So happy I found 4 legger.
I have 4small dogs<15lbs, 1 large double doodle, ages 8 to 11. They eat a raw diet, get their teeth brushed with this amazing powder every other day. Their teeth are sparkling white, gums are great, breathe is awesome. I wouldn’t use anything else. Thank you for an awesome product. Keep up the good work. Obviously, it has my 5 star rating.
My 🐶 does not like to have his teeth or mouth messed with but I do think brushing with this powder is helping.
