While some people consider it odd for dogs to need toothbrushes in the first place, let us point out that a dog’s dental hygiene is just as important as your own. You may not realize this but dogs are exposed to an awful lot of germs and bacteria on a daily basis on account of them putting their mouth on everything they see.
As such, they are prone to develop a wide range of domestic health issues and dentistry problems. You can avoid these problems by being a responsible owner and by investing in a dog toothbrush. For your consideration, we put together a list of the ten best dog toothbrushes money can buy.
Best Dog Toothbrushes of 2017
10Virbac C.E.T. Toothbrush
We should start off with Birbac’s CET Toothbrush, a toothbrush that has made its way onto many markets across the world. Its bristles are soft and won’t irritate your dog too much, which is always something to look for in such a toothbrush. Also, this product is extremely affordable and because one usually needs to change a dog’s toothbrush very frequently, this should be an excellent choice in the long run.
9Petosan Electric Toothbrush
If you want maximum cleaning with minimum effort, look no further than this electric toothbrush from Petosan, which is very similar to electric toothbrushes for human use. The toothbrush is double-sided and does 20,000 bristle strokes every minute. It is powered by AAA batteries, and the brush head is interchangeable, so when the brush gets worn out, you can only change the head without replacing the whole apparatus.
8Triple Pet EZ Dog Toothbrush Kit
This toothbrush is one of the most efficient on the market today with its triple-headed design and its flexible handle. With just one stroke, you can brush all sides of your dog’s teeth which will reduce the total time needed considerably. However, this toothbrush is only advised for dogs who have had prior experience with toothbrushes because otherwise, a foreign object of this design is sure to scare your dog if you try to insert it into its mouth.
7Large Dog Toothbrush by Boshel
Especially suited for large dog breeds and widely recommended by veterinarians throughout the country, this one is also a triple headed toothbrush. The bristles are amply soft, and the handle is non-slip and ergonomic. Not only that but you will also find this toothbrush to be highly flexible as far as elasticity goes. Again, the main advantage with such a toothbrush is that it takes you through the brushing process much faster than most.
6Lilys Pet Finger Dog Toothbrush
One of the best toothbrushes you can invest in for your furry friend is this finger-sized toothbrush from Lilys. Made of transparent, soft, liquid silicone this is the ideal toothbrush to get your pet used to the idea of brushing its teeth. Dogs might feel threatened if you forcefully insert a foreign object like a toothbrush in its mouth, but if you can simply wear the toothbrush on your finger tip and then proceed to clean your dog’s teeth, it will feel much more at ease.
5Petosan Cesar Millan Microfiber Fingerbrush Oral Cleaner
This product comes in a set with a triple Toothbrush and a two-finger glove brush. The glove set is meant primarily for removing tartar and dental plaque. The glove is an ideal, non-threatening tool to begin with, for dogs who aren’t used to toothbrushes yet and slowly once accustomed, you can introduce the triple headed toothbrush to the cleaning ritual. Thus this product provides a long term solution.
4Legacy Pet Supplies Double-Headed Toothbrush
Like the name suggests, these toothbrushes have two heads, a larger one and a smaller one. The larger head is meant for the front, and side teeth and the smaller head is intended for places which are harder to reach. The handles on these toothbrushes are particularly long which make it very easy to use for pet owners. All-in-all this toothbrush will provide a very thorough cleaning of your dog’s teeth and gums and ensure that it has perfect dental hygiene.
3Triple Pet EZ Dog Toothbrush
This product comes in a set of both a toothbrush and toothpaste, which makes it very convenient for dog owners. The toothbrush is triple headed and ideally manufactured for smaller breeds of dogs. An added benefit is, the toothpaste does not foam and does not require rinsing. This dental hygiene set is very practical, and that practicality has turned it into one of the best selling pet dental health products on the market.
2Virbac C.E.T. Oral Hygiene Set
If you don’t want to make any compromises when it comes to the dental hygiene of your furry friend, then this set should be your pick of choice. The set includes a dog finger brush, a double-headed brush, and a tube of toothpaste as well. You start out with the finger toothbrush and slowly progress to the double headed toothbrush when your dog gets accustomed to the whole process.
Virbac is a very eminent veterinary pharmaceutical company, so you can rest assured the quality of their products is top-notch. For instance, the toothpaste is specially made for veterinary use and can be swallowed by your dog without any harmful repercussions.
1Duke’s Pet Products Double Sided Canine Toothbrush
This quality toothbrush may be a bit smaller than some of the other toothbrushes we featured so far, yet it surely makes up with efficacy what it lacks in size. The small size of the brush makes it ideal for smaller breeds and puppies who might get scared when faced with a larger toothbrush, yet it works perfectly well with larger breeds at the same time. In fact, you are unlikely to find a more versatile dog toothbrush in this price range.
