Petrodex Finger Toothbrush For Dogs & Cats

Editor's Pick | 
Rating: 4

(4 out of 5)

The soft design of the Petrodex Finger Toothbrush is gentle and feels good on your pet's gums as it effectively sweeps away plaque and food debris, while massaging gums to increase circulation. It's compact and flexible to allow you to reach all of the tooth and gum surfaces in your pet's mouth. It's the perfect way to introduce pets to having their teeth brushed. Ideal for puppies and kittens. Easy to use. Dishwasher safe. For best results, use with a dab of Petrodex Enzymatic Toothpaste (sold separately). Suggestions for Use: Brushing is the best way to clean your pet's teeth at home. Initially, apply a small amount of toothpaste to your finger and let the pet lick your finger. Gradually introduce the finger toothbrush. Lift the pet's lips, begin brushing with short, back & forth strokes at the gumline. Brush only a few teeth the first time. Lots of petting and praise will make this an acceptable routine.

Petrodex Finger Toothbrush keeps dogs calm during dental care sessions.

August 7, 2010 10:00 pm | By Zootoo Editor Flinn D.

Rumor has it that some dogs - or so I’ve heard - don’t mind having their teeth brushed. These canines sit there calmly, head presumably full of peaceful doggie thoughts, while their owners patiently scrub away at their chompers.

My dog, on the other hand, is so traumatized by tooth brushing that the mere mention of the word, let alone the sight of a brush, sends him scampering as far under the bed as possible. If your experience with canine dental hygiene has been anything like mine, the invention of the Petrodex Finger Toothbrush could not have come any sooner.

The Petrodex Finger Toothbrush fits over your index finger like a hood. On the outside of the hood is a gentle toothbrush bristle that lightly massages your pet’s tooth and gums. Once you’ve put one of the brushes on and applied a little pet toothpaste, simply slide your finger inside your pet’s cheek and move in a circular motion.

The Petrodex Finger Toothbrush is made of hard plastic and slides easily over your finger. The only drawback that I can foresee would be if it slipped off and your pet was to swallow it. But this should not be cause for alarm: mine slipped it off several times during brushing and the brush simply dropped harmlessly to the floor.

The effects of the Finger Toothbrush are just as good as with more intrusive pet toothbrush, but - in my case at least - without the drama. As it turns out, the part of oral care that was making my pet skittish was having a large foreign object crammed inside his mouth. With the Petrodex Finger Toothbrush, the only object he could feel was my hand, making him much calmer about the whole process.

Pros: The human touch can calm dogs who are skittish about dental care.

Cons: Toothbrush can slip during brushing.

Not that great

posted 5 years ago

This is the first thing I tried to clean Max's teeth. It kept coming off my finger though. I just got a baby tooth brush to use. It worked better.

Pros: Cleans teeth

Cons: Keep coming off

Easy to use

posted 5 years ago

I like using this better than an actual toothbrush. I can get the back teeth better which is my dogs worst area. They don't seem to mind this brush as much. I use the chicken flavor toothpaste and my dogs will sit there and let me brush away.

Pros: easy to use, dogs don't seem to mind, better coverage

Cons: none

I have 3 cats and they love this food. They eat less and walk away with a full belly. Eating less means pooping less and less litter. All around a great choice for my cats.
