It’s important to take care of your pup’s pearly whites. But instead of reading reviews on Amazon, why not make this homemade toothpaste for dogs?

Pooch Paste


  • Spearmint oil, 16 drops
    • Many commercial toothpastes for both pups and people include essential oils.
  • Large glass bottle/canister with top (make sure the opening is big enough to fit your dog’s toothbrush)
  • Coconut oil, ¾ cup
  • Baking soda, 1 cup

In the container, thoroughly mix the coconut oil and baking soda until the mixture is smooth. Add the spearmint oil and mix until combined.

Now it’s time to brush up! Dogs are prone to dental problems, so remember to brush their teeth at least once a week.
