This is Daisy letting me know she doesn’t like what is in her mouth. For a dog that eats a lot of things ranging from cat poo, duck poo and rabbit poo to homemade dog treats and premium dog food, this is saying something.
Last month, I blogged about Managing dental health. Since then, Daisy and I have continued our journey and I have dutifully been brushing her teeth every night. However, because of my interest in natural remedies, I bought something called ‘Clean Well Dental Gel’ to try. This is an herbal gel for ‘fighting bacteria and freshening breath.’
I had my doubts as soon as I opened the bottle. The smell wasn’t particularly appealing. A little bit like the smell of lawn clippings that have stayed too long at the bottom of the waste bin.
From Daisy’s reaction, I think that’s about how well it tastes, too.
So we are back to brushing with poultry flavoured toothpaste. We may try malt and beef, too. But, if I want to make brushing a happy experience for both of us, this herbal stuff is off the menu.
