Can anyone give me some suggestions on how to care for teeth in a senior pug?

Let me explain......

Bertie had 13 teeth removed years ago because they were infected. We were told by the vet to give him hard things to chew as this would help prevent the infection happening again so we regularly give Bertie a dentistick about once or twice a week. I also put some stuff in his water that is supposed to help with tooth decay and gum disease cos the little booger won't let us brush his teeth. If you so much as go near his mouth he will fight and if you do manage to open his mouth he holds his breath.......just like a toddler would.

This is what I put in his water once a day

Anyway.....last night just for a treat Bertie got a biscuit wich he took to his bed to eat. He then came back to see if he could get another one and spat something out on the floor. Me and my mum thought "oh my god he has got at a bone" but when we looked closer and picked the object up we discovered that it was in fact one of Bertie's teeth!

He doesn't seem bothered by the fact that he has lost a tooth but he won't let us look in his mouth to see where the tooth has come from. It looked like one of his back teeth but as it was pretty gross and disgusting we threw it away.


PS. The teeth he does still have work very well as he bit me last night when I was trying to look in his mouth......

PPS Just been looking at a product that is similar to what I use for Bertie which contains Xylitol. I thought this was deadly to pets?

Xylitol is deadly for dogs.

I know that seniors can lose their teeth as they age, but you will want to get him to a vet to have it checked out. If the tooth broke off, there's the risk of infection and it will hurt like heck. If it just fell out, root and all, there may be a hole in his gum that may need some attention.

Will he chew on a toothbrush? That's what I used to do with my Yorkie. I would put the doggy toothpaste on the brush and give it to her as a chew toy. That may help.

Good luck.

DITTO, as Henry too, won't let me brush his teeth.

When Layla was little I tried the toothbrush thing, but she didn't seem to like the doggie toothpaste.

Rudy lets me brush his teeth... kinda anyways.  The problem is that he loves the doggy toothpaste so he eats it before I can even start to try to brush his teeth!

Max won't let me brush his teeth either and he will eat the toothpaste off the brush  so I use Wysongs Dental Treat sprinkled over his food.  He loves it and it seems to be doing the trick

Maddy and Emma will eat the toothpaste. It's a malt flavor, as they both hate the chicken. It's C.E.T. Home Dental Care Enzymatic Toothpaste by Virbac Animal Health. I usually just start by letting them lick a little of it from the tube, then I put some toothpaste on the q-tip and spread it along their gums. It actually helped fight the cat's gingivitis and her gums are much more healthy.
