Yes, our toothpaste tablets are fluoride free and safe to swallow (although we would recommend spitting after brushing as you would any other toothpaste). We would not recommend our product to children under 3 years old as our product is a small chewable tablet, it could become a choking hazard. For children under 3, please crush Bits into powder and dip wet toothbrush bristles into powder for brushing.

NO, these are not safe for pets! Our Bits are xylitol-based, as xylitol is good for our teeth, however it is extremely toxic to dogs and cats. The toxicity of our Bits are similar to that of grapes and raisins to dogs - so even a small amount of xylitol is deadly to them. Please keep these away from our four-legged friends.
