Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

  1. Where are the Waggletooth products made?
    • All Waggletooth products are proudly made in the U.S.
  1. Where can I find a list of ingredients?
    • Ingredients for all products are listed on the product pages for each product. If you have additional questions, then please contact us at
  1. Do I need to use the entire 4-step program?
    • For optimal dental health we do recommend using the entire line, but you can mix and match the entire line to find what works best for you and your furry friend.
  1. Can the Waggletooth line be used for cats?
    • The Waggletooth line has been especially formulated for dogs, so we only recommend use with dogs. We did formulate the water additive to be safe for cats, because we do know cats may sometimes share a water bowl with their dog friends.
  1. Should I supplement with additional probiotics if I use the Waggletooth products?
    • The toothpaste, water additive, and dental chews all contain probiotics. If you are using any of these products regularly, then you probably would not need to supplement with additional probiotics. We always recommend consulting with a vet when supplementing.
  1. Are Waggletooth products available in stores?
    • Yes, for a full list click here. If your store or business is interested in offering Waggletooth products you can contact us at for additional information.

Step 1: Waggletooth Patented Toothbrush

  1. What makes the Waggletooth toothbrush the best toothbrush on the market?
    • The toothbrush patented design was designed by a human dentist for dogs.
    • All the materials are FDA approved
    • The TPE helps make the toothbrush durable and longer lasting. Also, the TPE makes the toothbrush bite resistant. This can help increase the user’s confidence in brushing the dog’s teeth.
    • The toothbrush is one size fits most, but it can be molded to fit larger fingers. Simply place the toothbrush in warm water for a few seconds to soften, and then place the toothbrush on the finger.
    • The toothbrush is made in the U.S.A
    • The 360 degree bristles help make brushing quicker and easier, because no matter how the finger brush is used you have the bristles to help break down the tartar matrix.
  1. What is meant by use gentle pressure when brushing instead of scrubbing?
    • Use a pressure similar to when you are brushing your own teeth. Think of it as a gentle massage for the teeth and gums. It is important that you are gentle to your dog's teeth and gums especially if the gums are inflamed.
    • Use the brush where the teeth meet the gum line, and especially in the cheek areas. This is where you will notice the most build-up of bacteria, which is a yellowish discoloration. If you are able to pull the cheek open for brushing this will help expose those areas for optimal brushing. For smaller dogs you are going to brush with the tip of the brush in a perpendicular motion.

  1. How often should I brush my dog's teeth?
    • For dogs with larger build-up of tarter we recommend 2 times a day for 30 days. For regular/preventative we recommend brushing once a day. Regular brushing should help decrease the need for deep cleanings at the vet. Feel free to consult with your vet as well.
  1. How often should I replace the toothbrush?
    • We recommend inspecting the brush before each use, and replacing at the first sign of wear. The wear will depend on the brushing technique and dog. The estimated usage is 6-12 months.
  1. What are the dimensions of the toothbrush?
    • The Waggletooth toothbrush is approximately 2.75" x 1.25" x 1.25".
  1. How often should I clean the toothbrush?
    • We recommend cleaning the brush with warm water and soap after every use. Also, the brusher should wash their hands after brushing the dog's teeth.

Step 2: Waggletooth Dental Toothpaste

  1. How much toothpaste do I need to use on the brush?
    • The concentrated formula means a little bit of toothpaste goes a long way. For a small dog use a pea size amount on the tip of the brush. For a larger dog use a pea size amount on the bristles that come in contact with the dog's teeth. This could mean 1-4 small dots on the brush depending on your technique.
  1. Where can I find a list of ingredients for the toothpaste?
  1. Can you use the Waggletooth toothpaste without the Waggletooth toothbrush?
    • Yes, if the pet parent and dog are accustomed to using a product that is put on the teeth with a finger application, then can use our toothpaste in the same way. It may take longer for them to see results, because they will not get mechanical breakdown of the tarter matrixes that the toothbrush helps provide.

Step 3: Waggletooth Sparkling Breath Water Additive

  1. How should I use the water additive?
    • Add one teaspoon to fresh, clean water once a day. This water should be replaced daily with each new dose of the water additive.
  1. Where can I find a list of ingredients?
  1. Is Sorbitol safe for my dog?
    • Yes, sorbitol is considered safe for dogs and the water additive is diluted (1 teaspoon to 8 oz. of clean water), so it is a diluted amount. Sometimes people may confuse Sorbitol with Xylitol. Xylitol is used as a sweetener in human foods, but is not safe for dogs. If you have concerns always consult with your veterinary professional.

    Step 4: Waggletooth Antler Shaped Dental Stick

    1. What is the shelf life for the chews?
      • The current shelf life is 2 years from the lot date printed on the bag. We are working on performing extending stability studies. Once those are completed we are planning to have the expiration date printed on the bag.
    1. Can I give my dog the chews if they are under the recommended weight?
      • We do not recommend the chews if the dog is under the recommended weight.
    1. How many chews come in a bag?
      • The Medium/Large size has 8 chews, and the Small size has 10 chews. We are working on adding a larger pack sizes in the future.

    2. Where can I find a list of ingredients?
    3. How do the chews work to improve dental health?
      • What makes the Waggletooth chew unique are the quality ingredients, which are formulated to treat dental health from the inside out. The targeted oral probiotics work to promote a healthy mouth and gut. The potato based chew breaks down easily when mixed with the dog’s saliva, so the ingredients can go to work in the mouth and gut. For more information and a full list of ingredients visit the product page (click here).

    4. I am concerned my dog might choke, if they do not chew the dental chews completely. What should I do?
      • The treats are potato based to aid in easier break down. If you are concerned about choking, then we do recommend you monitor your dog when giving them the chew.

    5. How long should it take for noticeable results?
      • If you give your dog a treat a day, then you should notice fresher breath once you finish the bag (about 1 week).

    6. Do you offer single packs or samples of Antler Dental Chews to try?
      • At this time we do not, but we are exploring this as an option. If you have a dog that is adverse to the treat you can put a little peanut butter on it to entice them to try the treat.
