Dental health is just as important for your dog as it is for you. The problem is that human toothpastes foam up. Humans then spit this foam out because it is harmful when consumed. Dogs can't spit, so they need their own toothpaste. An all-natural toothpaste is best because it will be swallowed by your dog.
