    DefaultElectric Toothbrush for your dog

    Does anyone use an electric tooth brush for their dog? I am thinking of picking up another crest spin brush for my pooch, does anyone have an experience with this?

    My vet told me that human tooth brush bristles are to stiff for dog teeth. Do you think you'd be able to get one with a brush that is soft enough?

    Thanks, I hadn't thought that the brissles would be too hard for the dogs mouth. I bet a childrens brush head would work much better.

    Perhaps, but I think I would buy one and compare it to a dog toothbrush to compare the softeness of the bristles.

    I thought I read a post lately saying the owner used a cheap Oral-B electric.

    I use an Oral-B (not cheap) -- maybe I could use the head of one of mine when it get's too soft so Puff could have her head and I'd put on a newer one for me? ;D ;D ;D

    Gross Bob...
    Gross? There are racks to hold the brush attachments with their heads so each member of the family can use the same motorized handle but yet keep their brushes separated.

    Wouldn't that be okay and safe for Puff?

    Rinsing off the handle and our using separate brushes should keep my saliva from contaminating Puff, shouldn't it?? (And vice-versa. ;D ;D)

    Yeah I suppose seperate brush heads would keep you "safe" but isn't that a little too close. Its probably just me.
