Doggy Teeth Cleaning

Cleaning your dog’s teeth

As with us humans, keeping your dog’s teeth clean is very important to avoid plaque build-up and dental disease. Dental disease is very common in dogs, second only to ear infections, and can be extremely uncomfortable – much like we would experience. 

And some breeds are more susceptible to dental disease than others, for example, Brachycephalic dogs, like Pugs and Chihuahuas, have poorly aligned jaws with crowded or absent teeth 

As with everything its always easier to start teeth cleaning when they’re a puppy and brush their teeth every day to get them used to it. However, if you haven’t been able to do this then gradually introduce the activity by having your finger near their mouth. Maintain the habit and slowly introduce brushing until this is natural.

You’ll need a to buy a dog toothpaste as human ones aren’t suitable. A special dog toothbrush that goes over your finger can be used to brush their teeth, otherwise you could use a child sized toothbrush.

You should keep brushing their teeth as part of a regular grooming routine.

When to contact your vet

Regular brushing can keep plaque and dental disease away, but you must contact your vet if your dog has any urgent symptoms such as:

  • Bleeding or damaged gums 
  • Mouth is infected giving off a fouler than usual smell
  • Discoloured teeth that die and fall out
  • Sensitive or painful teeth
  • Noticeable difficulty in eating.

Emmi-Pet Ultrasonic Toothbrushing

Introducing the Emmi-pet system


  • It is completely silent
  • Non vibrating toothbrush
  • You do not even need to move the toothbrush around so the dogs don’t mind
  • It’s completely safe for all dogs, the ultrasound waves are just harmless air vibrations
  • It cleans deep into the gum line so not just where you can see but where you cannot see….

An ultrasonic toothbrush? 

Keeping your dog’s teeth clean is very important. It can help prevent a build-up of plaque and tartar as well as helping fight dental diseases like periodontitis. And it can help fight bad breath, tooth loss and gum inflammation.

Here at Stylish Fido, we use the Emmi-pet ultrasonic toothbrush system® when cleaning your dog’s teeth. 

The Emmi-pet has a piezo chip in the brush head which creates up to 96 million air oscillations every minute. When these ultrasound waves are mixed with the special toothpaste and water it creates millions of nano bubbles which keep imploding on each other – this, in turn, creates a suction effect which removes impurities, plaque and tartar and kills germs and bacteria.

Emmi-Pet is totally silent, non-invasive and doesn’t vibrate. It is held against the teeth with no brushing action, all of which results in a much calmer experience for your dog. 

It is suggested that for a new client, 3 separate 30 min sessions within 2 weeks should result in a really good clean mouth.  Once the tartar has been removed, 15min sessions can be booked to tag onto your normal grooming routine, and this will keep the teeth from becoming built up again with tarter etc.
