Owning a dog is amazing, as every owner will tell you. However, not every aspect of taking care of your pet is fun and pleasant. Brushing your dog’s teeth can be quite a troublesome task. That’s why you’ll love this DIY dog toothbrush.
If you don’t do it, it’s bad; if you do it, it’s bad. There’s no way around brushing your furry pet’s teeth. Skipping tooth brushing can cause plaque, bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease. That means that your pet might be in pain while eating, and even lose teeth. However, dogs usually don’t like this, so it becomes a habit that’s easy to skip, but one that can cost you and your pet a lot in the end.
So what can you do? You can give Bristly a shot. Really, we believe it’s worth it.
What is Bristly?
Bristly is a tooth brushing stick that was designed with dog’s behaviors and anatomy in mind. You see, while other toothbrushes for the man’s best friend are pretty much alike to our own, this one is different. While others were made for people to use them on their pets, this one was not. Your dog will start brushing its own teeth and will do it gladly, for a change.
How does Bristly work?
Instead of you holding your pet down while you jam a toothbrush into their mouth, Bristly encourages the dog to do it all on its own. Your dog will start biting and chewing Bristly the moment you give it to him, which will, in turn, brush his teeth. No more stressful evenings spent in a struggle.
- Completely safe – this toothbrush eliminates the choking hazard that usually comes with similar products. It’s made of natural rubber and designed to withstand a lot of use, while still complying with the US child toy safety standards.
- Protects against tooth-related health issues – it will prevent the build-up of plaque that usually causes oral diseases as well as other health problems in dogs. Also, it will help you prevent the need to go to the vet for tooth cleaning under anesthesia. As this procedure can be life-threatening for your pooch, it’s something you want to avoid.
- Customization – when you’re ordering a Bristly dog toothbrush, you can order based on your pet’s size and behavior. Sizes on offer are small, medium, and large. On the other hand, the team behind Bristly thought about the durability of their product, so they have versions for moderate and heavy chewers.
