For the past month our dog, Shiner, has been having her teeth brushed with the Emmi-pet Ultrasound Toothbrush. It's a pretty fancy pet toothbrush with some cool technology. It's not just your regular old pet toothbrush, it has ultrasound technology and actually requires no brushing movements by you.
At first, I was apprehensive to try the Emmi-pet because I thought it was going to vibrate. We've tried a vibrating toothbrush in the past and Shiner wasn't a fan. I was assured that this toothbrush does not vibrate, and it doesn't.
How does Emmi-pet work?
My favorite part about the Emmi-pet is that it can reach places that regular pet toothbrushes can't. And you can do it all without any vibrations, motion, or sounds. How so? Here are the details about how Emmi-pet works, taken from their website:
"Emmi-pet generates ultrasound with a patented ultrasonic microchip that is embedded inside the brush head. This chip creates up to 84 million ultrasonic (air oscillations) impulses per minute and transmits them via the bristles and the special animal bio-compatible Nano-bubble toothpaste onto the teeth giving your pet a superior cleaning. The ultrasonic impulses are able to penetrate teeth and gums destroying bacteria and germs where bristles can’t reach. This is essential in reducing and protecting against periodontal (gum) disease."I was happy to see that many people are using the human version of this product, the Emmi-dent. The only difference is the pet version doesn't vibrate. If it's good enough for a person, then I think it's good enough for my dog too.
The Emmi-pet came with a charging station and we charged it up for 24 hours before using it. The charging station is small and doesn't take up much room. Plus, I won't need to use the charger that often because it has a very long battery life. It came with a large and small toothbrush head and the special Emmi-pet toothpaste. The Emmi-pet toothbrush has special light indicators on it that tell you when it's on and off since you wouldn't be able to tell otherwise.
Shiner still isn't the biggest fan of having her teeth brushed and she's better some days more than others. Usually, if I wear her out before I brush her teeth she behaves better for me. The only downside of the Emmi-pet for us is that it does seem hard to reach the lingual side of her teeth with the toothbrush.
But, overall we like this product and would recommend it to others for their pet's at home dental care. It's a good long-term investment for your pet's dental health. It can be used on both cats and dogs.
