Hi all just wanted to know who ever uses this toothpaste which flavor did you buy. Thanks
I bought rotisserie chicken, but I haven't used it yet, so I can only tell you the flavor I bought, not whether my cats seem to like it.
I looked up reviews. They are mostly focused on dogs, not cats. The product also contains glycerin and doesn't say if it's plant derived glycerin. At least on Amazon, it's listed as a toothpaste for dogs. It also sounds like the dentist that developed this product isn't a vet.
I always used Virbac C.E.T.
@Sienne and Gabby (GA) I didn't know that thanks Sienne I will look that one up so these ingredients in the CRT are OK for diabetic cats
Glucose Oxidase, Lactoperoxidase, Sorbitol, Purified Water, Dicalcium Phosphate Anhydrous, Hydrated Silica, Glycerine, Poultry Digest, Dextrose, Xanthan Gum, Titanium Dioxide, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Thiocyanate.
these questions were asked on the chewy site and they responded with these answers, so is this safe for our diabetic cats
does this product have sugar in it?
This food contains Dextrose which is a type of simple sugar
can it used for a diabetic dog
Due to your pet's diagnosed condition, we recommend consulting your Veterinarian to see what would be a good fit for your little one's current treatment plan
What is the source of glycerin?
This toothpaste uses vegetable glycerin in its ingredients
Why does this contain dextrose (a sugar) and sodium benzoate (a preservative)?
Dextrose is added to the product since it reacts with glucose oxidase to produce hydrogen peroxide in the C.E.T. Duel-Enzymatic system. Sodium benzoate is a preservative commonly used in foods, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics
Did you buy the poultry flavor
I found this on the petsmile werb site
Petsmile Professional Pet Toothpaste - Rotisserie Chicken Flavor - Large
No Brush Toothpaste for Pets
Did you know brushing your pet’s teeth daily with Petsmile Professional Toothpaste will help them live happier, healthier, longer lives? Just like you, cats and dogs also get cavities, lose teeth, experience receding gums, and get periodontal diseases such as gingivitis. Using Petsmile daily will significantly improve the oral health of your dog or cat. It’s been proven that good oral health will help prevent heart, liver, and kidney diseases.
Veterinarian recommended Petsmile is the first and only toothpaste accepted by the VOHC (Veterinary Oral Health Council) for plaque inhibition, with Calprox. The VOHC recognizes that Petsmile meets the highest standards for your pet’s oral health.
Petsmile’s proprietary formula Calprox is clinically proven to inhibit plaque and tartar buildup by gently dissolving the protein pellicle. The protein pellicle is the thin bio-film that forms on the surface of the teeth, to which plaque, bacteria, and stains adhere. Removing the pellicle leaves your pet’s teeth cleaner and whiter while improving gum health and providing kissable fresh breath.
Petsmile is formulated with human-grade ingredients. It contains calcium, magnesium, phosphates, to re-mineralize and restore enamel. Petsmile is BPA-free, silica-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free, gluten-free, allergy-free and vegan.
The no fuss no brush formula makes it easy to improve and maintain even the fussiest pet’s oral health. Simply apply Petsmile on your cat or dog’s teeth and let their tongue do the rest. Your pet can immediately eat or drink after applying Petsmile, no need to wait. However, for best results, we recommend brushing your pet’s teeth with a toothbrush or use ourPetsmile Applicator Swabs once or twice a day. The great taste that pets love makes it easy to use Petsmile as a healthy treat up to 2 times a day.
Here are the ingredients for the chicken flavor

What do you think , so the glycerin in CET is plant derived?
Reading about all of this who knows what is safe for diabetic kitties
@Sienne and Gabby (GA) so the VirbacC.E.T. toothpaste is OK for diabetic cats even though it has dextrose and glycerin in it
It was what I used at the recommendation of my vet when I was in Chicago. At the time, I didn't do an investigation of the ingredients.
@Sienne and Gabby (GA) Hi there in regards to the pet smile toothpaste whether or not the glycerin is plant derived , I emailed them and just got a response
Our glycerin is plant derived. Does that help you?
