Bristly changes the way oral health problems are addressed and prevented in dogs. The brushing stick enables daily removal of plaque and bacteria without the toothbrushing battle so familiar to many dog parents. Designed with simplicity in mind, the product enables dogs to brush their own teeth. Features include paw pads so dogs can hold the brush, two-sided bristle lines that clean teeth down to the gumline, flavored bristles to promote chewing and increased palatability of the stick, and side nudges designed to provide extra brushing surface for an increased effect. Bristly is equipped with a self-dispensing toothpaste reservoir to enhance cleaning so dogs look forward to brushing in the form of play.
