As humans, we brush our teeth regularly in the morning and evening as a matter of course. Whereas in most dogs, the bacteria in the mouth and throat just flourish and tartar grows and thrives. Slowly, however, the realisation is spreading among dog owners that the teeth of their four-legged darling are also of great importance for an intact health. The triumph of the dog toothbrush has begun.

Our dog is no longer a wolf.
The wolf ancestors of our dogs did not yet need to brush their teeth. Their natural diet did not create a tartar problem in the first place. They did not only eat their prey with skin and hair, but actually down to the very last bone. Hard food components ensured that no particles got stuck in the teeth and became welcome bacterial food. With today's ready-made food, things are quite different.
Why do dogs need dental care at all?
Many dog lovers argue against brushing with their past experiences. Those who have kept dogs for decades but have never practised dental care usually don't see why they should suddenly start now. But it is simply a question of health. Just like in humans, the bacteria that settle in millions in tartar pose a serious health risk. The pathogens can make their way through the throat into the entire body and cause damage everywhere. This potential risk of disease can be prevented relatively easily through dental hygiene. Painful inflammations, tooth loss or anaesthesia for tartar removal can be avoided for your four-legged friend in the long run.

Brushing teeth - but how?
If you are serious about your dog's dental care, you can't just use your own old toothbrush. If you want to meet the special needs of your four-legged friend, you need a special dog toothbrush. However, dog owners can quickly become overwhelmed when looking at the dental care shelf in the pet shop.
Which one is the right one for my pet?
The models and cleaning methods are so different that no general judgement can be made. However, a closer look reveals that many toothbrushes for dogs have one thing in common: They are noisy or painful for your pet.
1001 dog toothbrushes with obstacles
There are many dog toothbrushes on the market that promise better mouth hygiene and health. These include curved dog toothbrushes, finger sticks, wipes, electric toothbrushes and chemical products. However, these options are often cumbersome as the animals find them uncomfortable or noisy and therefore resist the teeth cleaning. You can skilfully avoid this resistance with an ultrasonic dog toothbrush, as it cleans your pet's teeth both silently and gently. We at emmi-pet offer you a unique and patented technology that brings numerous advantages for your pet and for you.
The gentlest and most effective dog toothbrush with ultrasound
Probably the gentlest toothbrushing method for dogs is the emmi-pet ultrasonic toothbrush. This dog toothbrush looks like an electric toothbrush, but is completely silent and is therefore tolerated even by sensitive animals. The ultrasonic technology also makes mechanical brushing unnecessary. The toothbrush is simply held to the dog's teeth and the ultrasound does the brushing. The ultrasonic waves penetrate up to 12 millimetres deep into the gums and therefore not only clean the teeth, but also prevent the dangerous periodontitis. This is how you achieve extremely gentle all-round oral hygiene, so that bad odours do not arise in the first place.
