|Yes, and I looked on my own toothpaste & see the same ingredient in it but there's one huge difference as you said Lance. That is that a dog doesn't rinse & spit but people do -- at least adults. What really freaked me out was that I had just in the last 3 months begun to brush Pearl's teeth everyday instead of twice a week. I used to scale her teeth myself but have had some spinal disc problems & scaling her teeth is now almost impossible because of the prolonged body position I need to be in to do it & that's why I began brushing everyday. I am not a fan of taking a dog to the vet for teeth cleaning because of the necessity of them putting her "under" to do it.
An interesting side note is that my DH hates mint flavor & so uses children's toothpaste --- bubblegum flavor --- I looked at the ingredients on that & there are none of the "bad" things found in adult toothpaste. I may have to get used to bubblegum flavor toothpaste.
Life is surely a trip!
