Advanced Oral Care Dental Kit
This product was NOT recommended by my vet.
I never used a cat toothpaste before, so I brought the product to my vet and I was told they never heard of this brand and that they didn't even recognize some of the ingredients. So even though it was made for cats, I'm opting not to use it for my cat. I kept the product only because I like the tooth brush and the finger brush. I have some other finger brushes, but this one seemed a little softer. I'm sure plenty of research was done and it would not be recommended or sold by Dr. Foster and Smith if it was not okay to use, but I trust my vet and I wont' take any chance with my kitty or his health.
I did buy another toothpaste, the Virbac C.E.T. tarter control and the vet recommended that and said they have used that before and said it was a good product to use for a cat's dental care.

Not so easy with an older cat
After hearing from my veterinarian about the condition of my cat Dexter's teeth & gums, I thought maybe brushing would help stave off spending hundreds of dollars on screenings & procedures. Dexter had different ideas, though. No way could I get even a tiny bit of the toothpaste into his mouth, much less a brush. I suppose if he were a much younger kitty, I might be able to train him, but the only way this will work is if my husband & I work together to restrain him, which hasn't happened yet.
