Safe toothpaste for dogs

I have spent the last 4 hours looking on line for a toothpaste for my Havi that is safe without any ingredients that are not toxic. It seems that each one I find has 1 or 2 ingredients that are not safe for dogs, as per google searches.

Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations on what is good to use? I get his teeth cleaned annually, however, I want to start doing it at home too. I use to use the Mercola gel, however, I have researched and it contains carrageenan,

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you.

I've been using Petrodex. If anyone knows of anything wrong with that brand, please let me know!

I just started alternating recently between a toothpaste from the pet store (that is probably not healthy) and coconut oil. The coconut oil I read about here. When he needs a little more work on his teeth I use the coconut oil because he’ll let me in his mouth longer since he loves the taste.

I just assumed the ingredients in toothpaste were pretty standard but someone else brought it up recently, too. I’ll have to check out the suggestions from this thread.

My breeder recommended Fresh Breath by Tropiclean. My personal experience has been good too. You can get it at Chewy.

I like plain old coconut oil and the dogs come running for it.
