Enzymatic Toothpaste Dog Poultry Flavor 6.2-ounce.

How much paste do you use in one sitting? A pea size??

Yes, just enough to cover the dog's toothbrush. If your dog is new to brushing, a trick to make your pet fun and look forward to it: hold the toothpaste to your dog's mouth and squeeze out some toothpaste. Your dog will love the taste and enjoy brushing. Remember, checking and encouragement make for an easy daily routine. Taste, grasp the jaw firmly but gently with your fingers, say something you are both used to sharing and brush the teeth and gums with your other hand. I start at the front and then brush the sides. Your dog must stand or sit on a table to make brushing comfortable for both and to give you maximum control over the routine. My dogs (4) all love brushing. First I care for them one by one with a brush, give the dog a hug or massage, if he or she likes it, and once your pet is relaxed and you trust, you complete an enjoyable experience for both by brushing the teeth. It takes me about 5-7 minutes per dog after they finish eating and go outside. You should give your dog nothing to eat about 15-20 minutes before and after brushing your pet's teeth for best results. After your dog loves to brush, you can occasionally scrape tartar stains with a dental tool if you want to prevent a vet from cleaning all the teeth. My vet always says beautifully white and clean the teeth of my dogs. If you have built trust in your relationship, this is an easy extra step that lasts no longer than 2 minutes. I scrape only one or two teeth per night, because small sessions work best, at least with my dogs. I never spend more than 30 minutes a day doing the whole routine with all four dogs now. In the beginning it could have taken a little longer. As they say, practice makes perfect. The only thing I have to say when my dogs come in is brushing and they run to their room. They all want to be the first, but you are in control and determine the pace and routine. I always do my four dogs in the same order. Don't be afraid or don't hesitate, because dogs are extremely enthusiastic about experiencing uncertainty or fear. In the beginning, if your dog resists, don't get angry or frustrated and stay busy for 5-10 minutes at most. Every successive experience will be better.

Where it is made?

It is made in the USA.

Is this still made in the US?

Yes!

Is this toothpaste the kind that foams and cleans this way

No, it doesn't foam. Foaming agents are not included in toothpaste for dogs because they do not spit out like people do. Dogs need something that can be taken safely.

When does this expire?

It expires on 04-19

Can my dog swallow this? Do we need to take out all the toothpaste after brushing?

My dogs love this toothpaste and I give them a pea measure on my finger as a treat after brushing .... never had a problem swallowing one of the toothpastes! Use it for more than 4 years

Does this product have a protective seal under the cap to be sure it is safe?

Yes, it has an aluminum foil seal under the cap that must be removed before use.

Is there a big improvement in results using brushes over the ones that fit over the ends of fingers? I'd rather use them than a brush if as effective.

I've always used a toothbrush on my dogs, with the enzymatic toothpaste, and they have beautiful white glossy teeth! They love brushing with the taste of that toothpaste, so it's no problem.

does this toothpaste have sorbitol

Yes, it has sorbitol, a naturally occurring sugar alcohol (pears, peaches, plums, apples, stone fruits). Do not confuse sorbitol with Xylitol -

Does this product help with bad breathe?

Our experience is that persistent bad breath is a sign of tooth decay or gum disease. After our dog had dental cleansing and various extractions, her breath smelled fine and stayed like this for a year. We use Petrodex to keep her teeth clean between the dentists.

I just received my Sentry dog Poultry toothpaste 6.2 oz however the name Sentry is no where to be seen, does anyone else have the same issue ?

I didn't notice until you said something, but my tube doesn't have Sentry on it, either. It says Petrodex. However, it looks and feels (the way the toothbrush goes across the teeth with the paste on the brush) the same. Also, if you search for Petrodex toothpaste on the Internet, it says "Sentry Petrodex" as if the names belong together.
