My 7 year old cat just will not allow me to brush his his teeth. He used to sometimes at least eat the toothpaste, which my vet agreed was somewhat helpful, but then he started to refuse to do even that 2 -3 years ago. Until I found the beef- flavored CET, which he happily licks from my finger or a toothbrush. I'm hoping that he may eventually even let me move it around over his teeth with my finger, if not a toothbrush. I wish the beef-flavor wasn't always out of stock, but next time I order I'll get several tubes. Doctors F & S price on the paste is great, too!

This product was recommended by our dog's dentist, a Diplomate of the American Veterinary Dental College, one of 176 in the world - who knew? The dentist suggested the SALMON or BEEF flavors which have a tarter preventative in them.
Dentist TIP to start brushing:
For a couple days just open your dogs mouth, inspect, saying "great TEETH - let's brush your TEETH", and give a training TREAT. The next few days repeat phrase and add a toothbrush into the cheek, praise & TREAT. Next add brushing strokes, praise & TREAT. After awhile your pup won't need the treat.
I thought it was counter-intuitive to give treats, but it really worked!!!

I had the regular Dr. Foster's toothpaste which worked fine; my cat tolerated it taste-wise. The Virbac toothpaste (I got Malt flavor) however seemed to be so tasty my Siamese cat would instantly lick it off my finger. I am fostering a rescue cat and he too, thought I was giving some tasty snack. He licked it greedily off my finger. Great, I thought, he likes the taste so much he doesn't know its toothpaste, and even just licking some the enzymes in it will probably have some beneficial effect on his teeth even without my doing any brushing. After a few days I put it on a toothbrush and the black rescue cat starts chewing on the toothbrush. A few more days and I can move the toothbrush around a bit as he's chewing on it. So he's beginning to get his teeth brushed! You continue on like this and the cats get used to the toothbrush and tolerate you doing a little brushing. This is EXACTLY the way its always described on "how to brush your cats teeth". Its a gradual process to get the cat used to the toothbrush being in the mouth, etc.
Dr. Fosters own brand, which is a bigger tube and a better price, is a "better value" but my 2 cats definitely preferred the taste of this more. But I would recommend this more as you will have an easier time getting the cat to use the product. They really "go" for the taste of this, like its a tasty treat.
