Natural Toothpaste for Dogs

Dental care for your pets is as important to their health as it regular dental care is to yours. You might have encountered a pet (yours or someone else’s) who suffers from horrible doggy breath. Here’s a simple way to prevent plaque build up on your best friend’s teeth. . .


Note: NEVER Use Commercial toothpaste meant for Humans on your pets. The Flouride additive in them is Highly Toxic (well, to both You and Your Pet).

Natural Toothpaste for Dogs

You’ll need:

1Tbs Beef Bouillon Granules dissolved in 1T hot water
2 Tbs Baking Soda
2 tsp Cinnamon
1/3 cup coconut oil

In a small bowl combine coconut oil, baking soda, the dissolved beef bouillon, and cinnamon stirring well to completely blend. Store this in a small covered jar.

The beef bouillon is added to make the mixture tasty to your pet. The baking soda removes plaque and tartar build-up. The coconut oil is soothing, healing and offers many antibacterial and antifungal properties.

Place a small amount on the toothbrush and gently brush the dogs’ teeth, gums, back of the mouth and tongue. It helps to cup your hand over the top of their muzzle and gently lift their jowls to access the teeth. The tongue may be the easiest spot to start if you’re just beginning as your pet will probably readily lick the toothbrush.

Many vets recommend brushing your pets’ teeth daily, but we strive to do this 3-4 times per week.

  1. I have been so excited about making this healthy choice toothpaste for my family and finally did that this morning. I really don’t like salty things and I just can’t get this sweet enough to be able to tolerate it. I probably doubled your Xylitol recommendation and still can’t do it.

    Love this! Thank you! If using the recipe for your pets, e.g.

    dogs, cats, please do not use the xylitol. Xylitol is toxic to pets. I will have to try soon, & this recipe should be helpful especially with 2 dogs!
