The double headed pet toothbrushes from Petosan® are probably the best manual pet toothbrushes in the world. The innovative design of these brushes has proven particularly user-friendly and effective. The two brush heads on the the Petosan® toothbrush hugs the teeth, cleaning the front and the back of the teeth simultaneously.
The brush heads are angled so that the bristles meets the tooth at a 45-degree angle. This is ideal in order to be able to clean at and below the gum line where the harmful bacteria thrive. Because the brush hugs the teeth, the brush will be guided by the row of teeth, when brushing, making it easier for pet parents to clean adequately.

Why brush your dogs teeth?
Dogs do have the same challenge as we do. Plaque that accumulates on our teeth will trigger a reaction from our immune system. The immune system will release substances in the saliva that dissolves ligaments, bone and gum tissue so that the tooth may eventually be lost. In the process there maybe severe infections influencing our general health. If we brush our teeth or we brush our dogs teeth, the situation can be prevented.
How often should you brush?
You should brush once a day.
Try and find a time of date that is convenient for you most days. Some choose to brush just after their evening walk with the dog, other prefer when they brush their own teeth.
How do you brush?
Ideally dog owners should establish a dental regimen which the dog learn to appreciate. It may therefor payoff to go easy about brushing in the beginning.
Petosan recommends a 4-step approach:
- Prepare you and your dog for the process by establishing a quality dental regimen and handling the dog's mouth.
- Start by applying some toothpaste to your finger and let the dog lick it off. Slide the finger over the dogs gums so that it gets used to having its mouth touched.
- Put the oral cleaner over your finger, with the loop around your index finger. Apply some toothpaste to it and slide it along the teeth.
- Add toothpaste to the brush. Introduce the brush to the dog, allowing plenty of time for the dog to get used to the brush. Start brushing a few teeth and expand the number of teeth brushed over the next few sessions. Be patient, be generous with treats and appraisal, and you will find that the dog will start to love your dental sessions.
