What do you do to keep your pets' teeth nice and clean? Brushing, chews, bones, toys? How often?

I brush Toby's teeth every night before bed.

He also gets 3ish raw bones every week for dinner to help clean his teeth.

And he gets bully sticks as well.

I only brush Lady and Prince's teeth one or twice a week. I need to get better at that. I put Nylabone Advanced Oral Care in their drinking water and sprinkle ProDen Plaque Off for animals on their food once a day which works systemically through the saliva to breakdown bacteria that creates tatar. They also get bully sticks and my secret Santa sent a couple deer antlers which they are now working on too. Both dogs had dental cleanings before I got them so I am trying to maintain the good clean teeth. I will say something I am doing is working because Lady's back teeth and pointy eye teeth were yellowed and now they are pretty close to a decent white color. Prince had a couple of his tiny front lower teeth removed when he had his dental so I don't want him to lose any more.

Odie gets a raw bone-in meal a few times a week, and bully sticks. I really stink at brushing her teeth and have tried just a toothbrush and water, but once our toothpaste comes in the mail, I'm going to make an effort to do it every day even if I'm not the best at it.

Miya gets raw bones a few times a week. She also gets petzlife oral gel 1-2x daily. We brush with the oral gel 2-3 times a week. This is our new routine since she's had some FUNKY breath lately.

Crackers get a dental chew 3 times a week. Tia is missing some teeth so I haven't figured out what I am going to do with her yet...
