Emmi pet | Would you brush your dog’s teeth if it were easier?

Effective dental care for pets without the brushing

Emmi-pet is an ultrasound toothbrush for pets.

It does not depend on actual brushing to work effectively, according to the company. Instead, the ultrasonic waves handle the cleaning. You simply touch the brush to the teeth and gums.

Easy, right?

For me, one of the reasons I don’t brush my dog’s teeth regularly is because it’s just difficult enough with a regular toothbrush that I put it off. Yet, I know regular tooth cleaning at home can potentially protect him from periodontal disease down the road, not to mention expensive veterinary costs.

Emmi-pet sent me a free ultrasound toothbrush to try with my three pets, and personally, I think the best part about the product is how simple it is to use. If “brushing” is this easy, pet owners are more likely to stick with the habit.

More info about the Emmi-pet:

Emmi-pet is the pet version of the ultrasound toothbrush for people, Emmi-dent, which has been sold to hundreds of thousands of people worldwide since 2009, according to the company. Both brushes work the same way, using ultrasound to do the cleaning.

Here’s what I like about Emmi-pet:

Emmi-dent toothbrush for pets
  • It makes “brushing” my pets’ teeth easier for me, which means I’m more likely to do it.
  • It’s less annoying for my pets (particularly my sensitive cat, Scout) because there’s no motion, vibration or noise.
  • I know that better oral hygiene for my pets now can potentially save me money in the long run.
  • The same product can be used on my 70-pound dog and my two cats. It comes with a regular-sized brush head and a smaller brush (for small pets), so it’s easy to switch back and forth.
  •  It’s a high-quality product, which means I’m more likely to use it compared to cheap “doggy toothbrushes.”

Saving money in the long run – the cost of dental care

The price of the Emmi-pet will be an obstacle for some pet owners. It sells for $199.

However, this product will likely save pet owners money in the long run because pets that have their teeth brushed at home may not need their teeth professionally cleaned as often or even at all.

The cost of having your dog or cat’s teeth cleaned varies greatly from vet to vet, but the procedure is often done under general anesthesia and can cost anywhere from $150 on up to $400 or more.

I got an estimate for my cat Beamer at our local vet, and the price would start at $400, not including tooth extractions, which he will likely need.

While the Emmi-pet is not meant to replace professional cleanings, hopefully it will cut back on how often pets need their teeth professionally cleaned, and more importantly, prevent serious issues such as periodontal disease. (Not much different than our own oral health, really.)

Emmi-pet Ultrasound toothbrush for dogsAccording to Emmi-pet:

1. The product acts against gingivitis, periodontal disease, bad breath and cavities.

2. The ultrasonic waves reach deep into the gums to clean where a toothbrush and floss can’t reach.

3. Millions of ultrasonic waves are created per minute by a piezo chip inside the head of the brush.

4. It can remove existing plaque and tarter.

5. Using ultrasound for oral hygiene is absolutely harmless for humans and animals of all ages.

Emmi-pet review toothbrush for dogs and cats

Hello I have been using Emmi pet toothbrush on my Dog. My problem is to believe that it actually works. When you switch emmi toothbrush on, there is only a green light that indicates it is working. I understand that this is the whole idea of the brush but I cannot help myself doubting it. The whole toothbrush Feels very light and cheap. I am still giving it a try but it does nötig replace the vet as my toothbrush is not replacing my dentist!

Have you ever had to chase down 2 Cairn Terriers who see the toothbrush and run for the hills? If the ultrasound toothbrush would be effective and make the experience pleasant for 'my too smart for their own good' dogs, I will be more than happy to spread the word worldwide through the Canine community.

I just started TRYING to brush my dog's teeth. She's 15 months and I wish I had done it more when she was younger so she would be used to it! It's very difficult to do. I've only brushed her teeth 4x in her life (so ashamed!)...

Is the contest over? I suppose it is. Oh well. This Emmi-pet toothbrush sounds like a great product, however, the price is too much for me. It's hard to spend that much, though I realize in the long run it saves money. Our springer's teeth need a cleaning the vet says and I think we might do it sometime soon. I wonder how many people actually do brush their dogs teeth. That'd be an interesting survey... Thanks for the terrific review!

The contest is over, but if you ever decide to order one I can send you a coupon code for 10 percent off. I think it's a great product and have been using it every couple of days on my three! But I agree, the price is a bit high for most pet owners, although worth it if you can swing it.
