Toothpaste with Dextrose, Sorbitol and Glucose?

I've been looking at different doggie toothpastes online. The one that seems popular and in fact was recommended by someone on this forum is CET. I'm finding that it contains sorbitol, glucose and dextrose. In fact it seems that most of the other brands of toothpastes do contain some of these ingredients. Do you feel that should be a concern? I read on another site that sorbitol is not poisonous but can cause diarrhea.

I have been using CET vanilla mint toothpaste since my two were puppies. Scout and Truffles have never had a problem with diarrhea. I brush their teeth once or twice a day. Recently it is impossible to purchase CET anywhere. I bought the last two tubes at the Vet a month ago. Maybe it is being reformulated? Our vet now has Vetoquinol enzymatic toothpaste. I really like the consistency of the CET toothpaste much better. I noticed they both come from Canada. Sure hope they get the CET again. Were you able to purchase CET somewhere? Anyway... we have been using it for 3.5yrs without any problems. My two also love the CET Veggie Dent chews.

I've never had a problem with it either. You don't use very much.

Amazon has CET. Some of the vendors are charging an arm and a leg for a tube but there are a few that are still reasonable. Thank you for you for you answer to my thread.

Thank you for your replies. It looks like all of them contain some form of sugar. Seems odd that toothpaste would have a type of sugar in it! The brand I had on hand from my corgi also contains sorbitol.

Thanks! I will check Amazon. I think the most expensive I have seen in the past is $11.00. Wonder if it is still available in Canada?

What size chews do you get? Amazon is showing "small" and "regular". Is it something that could possibly be a choking hazard if the dog is an aggressive chewer?

The problem is that the non-sugar sweeteners used in human toothpaste are deadly poison to dogs.

Heather - I was at the vet recently and noticed they had a different brand of dental supplies as well, where the CET had been. I forget now what reason she gave, but was told it would be back soon. For what that's worth!!

Thanks! Seemed like no one had any answers. I just like the consistency of the paste. Plus Scout loves the vanilla mint!
