It happened to me yesterday morning. My dog and I were at the veterinarian's office. The vet and I were discussing a lot of things, including dental health (the dog's, not mine).
I was picking up a fresh tube of doggie tooth paste on the way out. The vet's assistant asked me if I wanted melon-mint, or poultry flavor.
The choices were new ones on me. It was blazing hot in there. I was a little tired. I wanted out, and I resisted the temptation to snap back with with a wise arse remark.
I did say something like "The dog never expressed a preference." I asked what seems to be most popular in the canine community. The assistant explained that many owners go for the melon-mint if the dog is a big kisser and licker. My dog, the best rescue dog ever, has never been a kisser. We went for the poultry flavor, and we'll try it out this weekend.
Personally, I go for the same flavor of Listerine every time (arctic mint), but I do get bored with toothpastes and switch flavors frequently. I do like the Colgate Max Fresh with Breath Strips, but I'm working on a tube of Crest cinnamon right now.
Curious as I may be, the dog's poultry flavor tooth paste is safe.
