Stop feeding any sweet/ acidic scraps. No fruit. No tomato. No wheat/breads. Nothing pickled. No potatoes or meat treated with vinegar.

Soften food with warm water daily.

Remove all hard chew toys for a while.

Put bone powder supplement in food; naturelo makes one bone strength is what it's called, other brands too; check amazon. Plant-based is best

Use equal parts black walnut powder, horsetail powder, liquid coconut/olive/ avocado oil, the bone powder, calcium bentonite clay (sodium bentonite could pull calcium from teeth if not buffered right).

Add 1/8 tsp of potassium bicarbonate. If you don't have that use baking soda. We need bicarbonates.

Add 1/8 tsp of borax, preferred to get food grade off amazon, use what you can get though. This adds the important boron to the mineral mix

Add a touch of celtic or himilayan sea salt, or other seas salt. No table salt.

Add a few drops of Lugol's iodine.

Add a few drops of magnesium oil (if mixing yourself; by volume: 60% magnesium crystal to 40% h2o) - or use a few tiny single crystals of epsom salt.

Stir up in glass or plastic container you can seal up tight. Do not use metal lid. Only plastic. If using ball jars, get the plastic screw on lids by mainstay or ball at walmart or menards or online. Could use a pill bottle. If only have metal lids use a layer of wax paper or seran wrap between lid/ ring and the glass / contents...because the clay will desiccate the metal out of the ring and through the foodsafe coating under the lid, too.

If too thick add a touch of pure water or more oil. Do not use canola or vegetable oil. Dangerous and usually have allergens to dogs in them.

If the tooth is abscessed or infected, use a pinch of fresh crushed (preferred), or powdered garlic to really crush the infection..

Clove powder can be added for pain relief, though not all dogs will like the taste or smell, may pose difficulty. I would keep the clove powder out of the main paste and add a touch right before brushing directly to the brush.

Brush your dog's mouth with the mix. If they don't take it, keep a small cup of extra oil nearby to dip the toothbrush w toothepaste into ; to make it palatable

If you have st John's wort oil, a single drop added to the paste just before brushing will serve to remove the pain. I don't recommend cayenne. If you don't have the oil. Crushed an aspirin and use a pinch to 1/4 of the powder in the paste depending on the dog size..only if they're obviously in pain though. Do not use much for small dogs. Do not use aspirin or any other otc pain reliever for dogs more than once every other day. My vets all tell me a pain killer stays in a dog's system 48 hours. Liver failure can occur if you dose too soon.

That is why homeopathic remedies are a must for pain control in domestic animals because herbs and medication can easily hurt them if not dosed correctly. Homeopathy cannot hurt anyone or overdose, ever. Harmless.

My dog chipped her tooth to the nerve and was in severe pain..

I started her off with hypericum 200c 4 times a day for two days. I gave arnica 30c the second day, an hour or so after each hypericum dose

Hypericum 200c is a general painkiller.

Arnica montana 30c is a nerve damage preventer, healer, and nerve pain reliever, and is good for bruising/ swelling.

Hypericum 200c is very strong..

After two days her pain was no longer apparent and she let me touch her teeth more readily and brushing became easier.

I switched to hypericum 30c since the pain was fewer and less frequent. Most homeopaths say if you aren't sure, start with the 30c strength. I kept up on the arnica. We hare 8 days out now. On the 3rd day, her tooth was white again, after turning yellow then almost brown beige. The layer under the enamel that became exposed and began to rot was now healing itself over at a rapid rate, thanks to the herbal paste, loaded with remineralizing herbs and minerals. The nerve ending that turned black was now shrinking and receding under the layer and back into the tooth, the black spot was going away. And her gums were not only no longer bleeding, but the inflammation was totally gone on day 6. With no more swelling or redness on her gums at the tooth anymore.

The most important for the tooth paste is the horsetail and blackwalnut, and clay to keep consistency. Other stuff can be left out if tight on cash. Black walnut and horsetail have so many minerals beneficial to bones and remineralization of teeth.

I now have her on hypericum 30c and arnica 30c once a day still, to mitigate and residual pain as the nerve continues to heal. Arnica is indicated often for nerve damage and healing. I will continue for 3 more weeks the toothpaste daily and the homeopathic remedies.

I just wanted to share what I found and that it worked wonderfully on an upper cracked molar in my dog's mouth, 1/3rd of the tooth came away and exposed her nerve and began to rot with plaque fast..

Tip; cloves will kill the pain if you cant get aspirin/ st johns wort or hypericum; but not all dogs will allow cloves to come near their snout..

I would use this remedy for myself. This remedy is a compilation of research I found that worked for other people confirmed, i combined the best ideas and tried myself with very good result.

If the dog will not allow brush in its mouth, try dipping the brush clean in some coconut oil/ coconut butter or olive oil and let them lick the brush and make friends with it..

Then try to brush. Give the dog a small treat each time they allow you to brush a little bit to make them friends with the brush.

If still cannot brush. Get the paste on your fingers and coat their gums with it. If they won't even let you do that, get them to eat a bit of the paste out of a bowl or plate somehow. They need the mix in their mouth, but best to get it right on affected teeth/gums. Eventually will have to coat these areas.

As for dosing the homeopathic remedies: I suggest getting the remedies in pellet form, dumping a few pellets into the lid, lifting the dog's jowl/lip up near the tooth, and quickly tossing the pellets from the lid onto the gums anywhere with a quick flicking / chucking motion. Liquid remedies can work, but most have alcohol and it will make an unpleasant experience for the dog to have alcohol in their mouth. Look for only liquid homeo remedies preserved in glycerin instead.

Hello Ron, my dog has chipped her tooth exposing the pulp causing an abscess. I wish I had found your article earlier as the abscess wasn't going down until I used the fresh garlic. She still has a small lump left but I am now wanting to mix up the paste recipe you provided. When you state "Use equal parts black walnut powder, horsetail powder, liquid coconut/olive/ avocado oil, the bone powder, calcium bentonite clay"; would that be 1 tablespoon of each, plus 1/8 tsp potassium bicarbonate and borax?
