TIPS & TRICKS
While brushing our dog’s teeth may not be a lot of fun for ourselves or our dogs, we can still make it as exciting as possible. Once it becomes a routine, your dog will be happier to let you brush his teeth.
When you first start brushing his teeth, start with a few quick brushes of the front teeth and slowly increase the time you brush his teeth over a couple of days until you get all of the teeth!
For added benefits, you can dunk the toothbrush into coconut oil before applying the dental powder.
Frequently asked questions
How often should I brush my dog's teeth?
Brushing your dog's teeth is the gold standard for oral dental care! Just feeding raw bones to our dogs sadly isn't enough if we want to avoid expensive and risky dental cleanings and most oral care chew solutions contain sodium hexametaphosphate (SHMP) - linked to kidney, liver, and thyroid issues.
It is recommended to brush your dog's teeth on a daily basis or as often as possible.
How are ingredients sourced?
4-Leggers standards are very high, investing A LOT of time to research and sourcing.
Focusing on quality and sustainability of the ingredients, no slave or child labor is used and the environmental impact is governed by an elaborate set of farming and production standards with a narrow list of allowed inputs and processing aids. It prohibits the use of synthetic fertilizers, toxic pesticides and genetically modified organisms (GMO’s).
Organic agriculture enriches the soil, protects water quality, promotes ecological balance and biodiversity, reduces our exposure to synthetic pesticides, and helps preserve our planet for future generations. Organic is the gold standard for the safest products on the market - period.
4-Legger's goal is to find the highest quality safest ingredient with the lowest impact on our planet.
