Love your pets like you love your kids? Then you’ll probably want to hear all about the Orapup, which is a doggy tongue cleaner that promises to combat bad doggy breath by getting rid of it, right at the source.
Most people brush their teeth and scrape their tongues every day, but some of them still end up with pretty nasty breath. So you can’t really blame your canine pals for having less-than-stellar breath since they can’t brush and all. While there are a ton of doggy toothbrushes available, there’s only one pet tongue cleaner that I’ve heard of so far–and that’s the Orapup.
If you’ve ever tried brushing your dog’s teeth, then you know it could end up being quite the chore, especially since you have to hold them down and make them stay still while you brush. The cool thing about the Orapup is that you don’t need to hold them down, because it’s been designed to clean your pooch’s tongue in the easiest way possible: by having them lick it.

All you have to do is squeeze a dollop of the beef flavored gel that comes with the Orapup. Aside from motivating your dog to lick away at the Orapup, the gel contains natural enzymes to neutralize your dog’s mouth and fight tartar at the same time. The bristles on the Orapup itself are made from ultra-soft material that brushes over and in-between the dog’s teeth to give it a good cleaning. In between the bristles are also four scrapers that collect the grime and bacteria that the bristles have managed to loosen up.
Orapup is currently up for funding on Indiegogo, where a minimum pledge of $10 will get you one Orapup in a random color, five flavor packs, and two Orabrushes for humans.
