How do I apply Oratene Brushless Toothpaste Gel to my pet's mouth?

Once or twice a day, apply a 1/2" strip directly from the tube between the cheek and upper gums. This is a brushless toothpaste, which means the pet's own saliva distributes the product to all parts of the mouth. If you prefer to apply with a brush, you can, but it's not necessary

The products say brushless yet I've trained my pet to accept brushing. What should I do?

The most important thing to remember is daily oral care, regardless of brushing or using a brushless system, will enhance the health of any pet. The LP3 Enzyme System has many benefits to using and some pet owners have found the Oratene Brushless Toothpaste Gel can be applied directly onto the gums, with a finger or a toothbrush

How does the water additive work since it's not applied directly to mouth or gums?

The water additive is a flavorless concentrate that dilutes well in fresh water. The enzymes come in contact with the mouth with every lap of water.

Which product should I use?

For optimal results, we recommend using all three products: Water Additive, Toothpaste Gel and Breath Freshener. But the choice is up to the pet parent to use one, two or all three. All three products feature the same dual enzyme systems. All three are truly brushless. If convenience is a key factor or your pet doesn't like to have their mouth touched, we recommend the Water Additive. If you have a program that works for you and your pet is still suffering from halitosis, try using the Breath Freshener. If you are comfortable flipping your pet's lip, then the Toothpaste Gel can be used and will provide maximum enzyme contact.
