In this video I'm going to demonstrate how to brush the teeth. So I have Cristobel with me here and she's in her mid bath. Just about finishing up her bath. I have my enzymatic toothpaste with me and I have a little toothbrush. so I AM very simply wetting down the toothbrush as you do with your own. Just going to give Christabel a little bit more water here, might be feeling a little bit cold., Then what you want to do is just squeeze in a pea-sized amount onto your toothbrush. Then you want to push it into the bristles. So that's a great amount right there. Okay and then what you want to do is just using your index finger and your thumb you want to pull back the mouth like that and then very gently. Okay so I'm also covering up eyes. Very gently you want to start to glide the toothbrush in OK, not pushing very hard.
Cleaning the Teeth
Now remember cats can't spit. So that's why it is important just to push this toothpaste into the brush. So then the toothpaste can start to work. You can see that Cristobel is doing a great job of helping me here. I'm just going to open up your mouth little bit wider there, sweep the top part. Again I'm going nice and gentle, nice and slow. I'm working with her here, yep. So again I'll pull enough to expose the teeth. We can try and cover their eyes. Sometimes they will bite down the toothbrush and that's okay. You don't need to do it for very long.
Rinse your toothbrush really well and then what I like to do, if you are brushing in the bath, what I like to do as part of the bath time routine is just get the nozzle in there up ahead to rinse up any toothpaste, sorry about that Cristabel, that may have gotten onto her fur. Ideally you want to be brushing the teeth every day or every other day. There, that is how we brush the teeth.
