In order to reach the ultimate step of brushing your pets teeth, we recommend that you follow these steps. It will help you integrate the dental gel and the toothbrush while keeping your pet comfortable.
Start with Cranberry Dental Gel
First of all, You need to understand the importance of going at the animal’s pace. Each animal will have a different adaptation period and it is important not to skip any steps. If your pet is uncomfortable, you can go back one step and then move forward. Remember to be diligent and take it slowly.
To get him used to the dental gel
You can start by giving him his favorite treat, a dental toy, or his food. This allows him to make a positive association. The amount of dental gel should be sufficient to spread over the pet’s teeth and gums when chewing. The texture of the dental gel has been optimized to make it stickier in order to increase the contact time between the product and the animal’s mouth walls. This texture allows the dental gel to be administered in several ways depending on whether the animal is cooperative or not.
To get him used to the manipulations of the mouth
You can start by having the dental gel licked off the finger. This step is simple and easy for less cooperative animals. The product will be redistributed into the animal’s mouth by its saliva and tongue movements. This step works particularly well for cats, due to their tongue structures resembling small hooks. The next step in the process is to gradually manipulate your pet’s head and lips without restricting it. Then you can touch his teeth and gums with your index finger to prepare him for the next steps.
Each step may take several tries and days or weeks to complete. Once comfortable, you can incorporate the product. Applying it with your fingers ensures that it gets on all your teeth and gums. Unlike the abrasive ingredients found in many toothpastes, dental gel does not require brushing to have its effect on bacteria. The active molecules are able to protect teeth and gums with a simple touch.
To get him used to the toothbrush
For the final step of this guide, the animal must be comfortable with all the previous steps in the process. Tooth brushing is ideal since there is a mechanical action. It remains the best combination with the cranberry dental gel.

Gradually, you can brush the teeth in small steps, starting with the teeth that are most easily accessible.
