Keep this product out of the reach of children and pets to avoid unintended consumption.Directions: Train your pet for teeth cleaning by gently stroking the outside of its cheeks with your fingers. This will allow your pet to become comfortable with having your hands near its mouth.To introduce brushing to your dog place a small amount of toothpaste on the tip of your finger and allow dog to lick it off. Next, apply a small amount of toothpaste to the dog toothbrush. (Use the large bristle head for larger dogs and larger teeth areas, use small head for smaller dogs and smaller teeth areas.) Gently expose your dog's teeth and gums and brush teeth. Praise your dog as you brush. For hard to reach or sensitive areas, apply a small amount of toothpaste on the finger toothbrush and gently brush. Only use toothbrush designed specifically for dog's teeth and gums- human toothbrushes are too harsh for dog's teeth.
