Have you tried raw chicken wings & legs? These are what I give Linus, and his teeth are super clean (not to mention super sharp!) I started off by cutting the raw chicken wing in three, to get him used to it, and now he happily chomps on it whole (bones & all). But you may have tried this already.

Re: Toby verses Toothbrush!

No, I havent tried it but I'm a bit nervous to be honest. Worried about him choking. Hmmm ... something to think about though.

I came across this on my travels. Apparently you can place it on your cats paw and they lick it off if you cant apply it directly to their teeth.

I also looked at the plaque off product and it says that you shouldnt use with a hyperthyroid cat. Toby isnt hyperthyroid but has an enlarged thyroid gland and slightly funky liver enzyme results (which are usually present in hyperthyroid cats) so I think I need to steer clear of that unfortunately. Looks like a good product though.
