Even Holly's daily routine doesnt come to 101 and we all know how I can be when it comes to her.
I would love to know how you get it to 101.

Does coco ever cover herself in the toothpaste?

Yeah I briefly went over what I do with Coco on any average day, and I only have like 10 steps - i am insanely curious to hear King Igors routine haha.

& Nope, I honestly dont think she likes the poultry flavour that much to do so. I only use a small amount on a q-tip; but she's never anointed with it!

Everyone thought I was nuts when I said I brushed hedgehog teeth too. I heard "It not possible" But with enough practice and patience I've been able to brush even defensive hedgehogs. You need to practice a lot. And understand that a lot of hedgehog behavior is a defensive reaction because they don't understand what you are trying to do. With practice they often will learn that this is what happens and become tolerant. Nail trimming is difficult for many, but if you practice regularly/daily they adjust. They may not like it, but they will learn to tolerate the interaction a lot better.

I do Holly's nails every other day, and she is more tolerable of them, but I also find ways that work best for her that day.

I can't imagine her reaction to brushing teeth!
The only thing is learning how to do it!

We might have to start buying toothpaste and brushing my dogs teeth anyway, so maybe I can just use a little for her every other day. I'm not sure how effective the tartar control treats are is she chews it up and then covers herself in it!
Also means less fatty treats!

At an estimate I think Holly's comes to about 20 steps. I haven't worked it out though!
