    Can anyone recommend a good doggie toothpaste/brush? Thanks.

    I used to brush Lexi's teeth with a toothpaste and soft toothbrush as recommended by my bet. She was not raw fed and was born with a predisposition to bad teeth. Lexi ended up losing a number of teeth and after two dental surgeries had to have quite a lot extracted. Whatever you do, do not ever use a human toothpaste for brushing your little man's pearlies.

    Pereg had lovely teeth, even better after I started raw feeding.

    Tikva? I would be only too happy if my teeth were as strong as hers.

    I use an electric toothbrush replacement head for my dogs teeth, because I find it easier to manipulate inside their mouths than a longer handle. I clean approx. weekly, and there is no scale to remove, it's really just a check and polish. I order Virbac Enzymatic Toothpaste for Dogs, (sometimes called C.E.T.), online, because it is meat flavoured and they love the taste, also I'm sure the enzymes help. I have used Hatchwells Tooth Powder, but found it a bit messier, and they are not as keen on the taste.

    Thank you for your much appreciated advice and help as always. Now his 'bits' have gone, next week his nose and soft palate are being sorted! So will be picking up Israeli television from his satellite dish again!

    Little man had his second opertion today and it's the first time I've not had him at home with me since got him. A few weeks ago he had his castration op, he was fine with that and was home the same day. But his nasal cavity and soft palate one today requires him to stay overnight. It's really weird because my whole routine revolves around his and I have been so lost not having him trotting around the house, or for cwtches up on the sofa! And toilet and dinnertime was strangely subdued. But he's doing fine hmy head vet said so that is a relief!

    Poor chap, he is having it tough this month. Well worth doing though, and he will soon be back demanding his walks. Keep us posted Gareth.

    Yeah, even though it is so hard seeing him looking all sorry for himself, it'll mean a better quality of life for much longer. Many more Cwtches (Welsh for cuddles) and even though I found his snorts and grunts adorable I knew it must have been uncomfortable for Little Man. Another week or so, after plenty rest (and hopefully not interfering with the flight path of overheard planes) he'll be back to his usual self!

    How is the Little Man today Gareth? Poor little fellow - I bet he missed his papa yesterday just as must as you missed him. Are you able to bring him home today?

    I am sure that more cwtches on the sofa with you is just what he will need to make him feel better.

    Tikki sends best wishes, a gentle snuffly kiss, and lots of tailwags.

    Thanks for all your kind wishes. Little Man is doing good and was so happy to see me today. The house was so empty this morning, waking up and not seeing him when I went into the kitchen was so weird. The vet said he's been great and not tried to scratch his face so hasn't needed a satellite dish this time, but am still watching him like a hawk. He's having a well earned snooze next to me this evening, while I have a glass (or two) of whisky!

    Mr Bronson is 1 today and he's been celebrating his special day in his usual way, by being flat out and sleeping! :113:
