Rated 5 out of 5 by Chupacabra great for my Chihuahua
I have had the hardest time brushing my Chihuahua's teeth. Everytime I try to get a finger or brush in there, he just pulls away. I almost snapped his head off trying to brush his teeth, so I decided to let him do it himself. The first thing I bought was this blue thing with bristles that cost $15. It said not to let the dog use this for more than a few minutes. Well, I put it down and my Chi didn't go for it, and I had to pick it up in case he did while I was gone. Then I got the Kong dental stick. It is inexpensive and really works. He loves it. If you think it is not durable, keep in mind, a bully stick costs as much, and won't last as long. You may have to buy more to replace them. I use mine with Petrodex toothpaste in the grooves, and it's better than paying $200 and risking anesthesia complications for a professional teeth cleaning. His teeth are very clean now, thanks to this product. They should make an extra strong one, like they do with Kong toys. But as is, this is a winner for me!
