Pets Are Kids Too Premium Pet Dental Spray (Large - 8oz): Eliminate Bad Dog Breath & Bad Cat Breath! Naturally Fights Plaque, Tartar & Gum Disease Without Brushing! Add to Water! Digestive Aid! Review:

We ordered this spray for our Yorkies after trying some others. Some of the others were on the upper price end and some in the middle. Most of them when I would go to use them the Yorkies would pull away and didn't want me to lift their lip. I would think it was the taste. When we received this product, that night I got them one at a time on my lap sprayed a little in my hand and let each one smell. I got Lexie first sprayed a little around her face, she didn't flinch, unusual, lifted her lip sprayed her gum, nothing, front, to other side sprayed, nothing. Not a flinch. Now it's for Benji, the pain! got him on my lap. I knew he was going to be a problem of pulling away. Sprayed a little in the air around his face. Nothing. Put my hand at his upper lip lifted it up 2 good sprays on L side 1 front- no problem. moved to R-side 2 good sprays-no problems. I couldn't believe it. You ask me what the difference is, I don't know. Taste maybe? I know their breath is getting a whole lot better. The tartar and plaque I honestly don't know because I've just been using the product a few days but I'll be glad to report back in a few months. We're putting 2 to 3 sprays in their drinking water daily also. Right now I would recommend the product because of the problems I've been through with our Yorkies with bad breath. It's working very good.

Virbac C.E.T. Enzymatic Toothpaste for Dogs and Cats, Beef Flavor, 2.5 oz Review:

I have to brush my rescue chihuahua's teeth nightly. I adopted her when she was approximately 2 years old. Her teeth were in terrible shape! She had apparently been fed only soft food as she disliked hard kibble. I have since weaned her to hard kibble designed for toy dogs which is much better for her teeth. She also will not chew any dental bones. Her breath was absolutely atrocious when I adopted her! Her breath smell improved after a few days of daily brushing, but it took over 9 months to get 80% of the dark nasty brown gunk off her teeth. The vet was amazed at the improvement in her teeth at her first yearly check-up. The vet had initially recommended a complete deep cleaning of her teeth on her initial visit as her teeth were so bad. I hated to put her through that ordeal so I tried daily brushing with this product alternated with the Petrodent poultry flavor toothpaste in the hopes that I could prevent the dental cleaning procedure. I also use the Zymox brushless enzymatic gel or spray every AM. It took a few months, but her teeth are now almost completely spotless. They should be spotless after approximately 18 months of twice daily treatment. Well worth it to me to prevent the ordeal & cost of a vet dental cleaning. I am sure she is happier with the teeth brushing rather than undergoing a dental cleaning. My other dog hated going to the vet after I had his teeth cleaned by the vet. He was a terrier & hated having his teeth brushed. I am very thankful that my chihuahua does not mind the home dental care at all. She has become accustomed to her twice daily dental routine.

Oxyfresh Premium Pet Dental Care Solution: Best Way to Eliminate Bad Dog Breath & Cat Breath - Fights Tartar, Plaque & Gum Disease! - So Easy, just add to Water! Vet Recommended! Review:

It is indeed odorless and tasteless. I tried it. My cats actually drink it!
I would like to address the one star review purportedly breaking down the ingredients. Yes, sodium hydroxide can be very caustic. It is also used to raise the ph balance of drinking water, causes the crispness of pretzels and is apparent in hominy, corn nuts, grits and is evident in a number of European dishes.
"Sodium benzoate is most widely used in acidic foods such as salad dressings (vinegar), carbonated drinks (carbonic acid), jams and fruit juices (citric acid), pickles (vinegar), and condiments. It is also used as a preservative in medicines and cosmetics.Concentration as a food preservative is limited by the FDA in the U.S. to 0.1% by weight. Sodium benzoate is also allowed as an animal food additive at up to 0.1%, according to AFCO's official publication.
It has been shown to actually halt the progression of Parkinson's in mice. Cats have a significantly lower tolerance against benzoic acid and its salts than rats and mice."
I liken it to vanilla. When my mother would bake I was reduced to a whimpering toddler as the vanilla smelled so good I wanted to sample it by itself. A few years later, at about the age of 12, she finally relented. I shivered with anticipation as she put a very small amount in my mouth and I wanted to retch!
I have 10 rescues and was thrilled to find something with no odor or taste. I have yet to find an animal that would actually drink the minty flavored products. Yes, I have tasted it and it has NO taste. If I do notice either side effect "one star" mentioned, or any other for that matter, I will add a lower amount and, if it should persist, I will have to cease using it. I pray it does not as my Bobtail's breath has significantly improved.
There are a number of items we ingest that have the properties of a "poison" of some sort depending on the amount used hence regulation. If you research something all the information should be presented so a person may make an informed decision.
I love my four legged children with all my heart. My neighbor is a feeder breeder and I have gone many extra miles to help and protect them. I would never do anything to knowingly endanger them.
I just ordered my third bottle and my one regret is that it took so long to find it.

Proden Plaqueoff Animal 60g Review:

Oddly enough it does help. I have a mini dachshund her canines only get terrible and I'm inconsistent/bad with brushing. So I've had to get her teeth cleaned by the vet every year - since she was 2. That is like surgery because they have to completely sedate the dog, so not only is it costly it is dangerous.

This year we didn't have to do a cleaning! It can only be due to this product. Her canines still get plaque buildup but it's nothing like it was before. I really need to step up brushing, then her teeth would be great.

I have an older dog Jack Russell terrior mix whose never had his teeth cleaned and has garbage breath. When I started using this his breath didn't smell anymore, I was very stunned seriously - I could let him lick my cheek again. Then I ran out and started again but now his breath is smelly - lightly garbage. Still a big improvement.

Premium Pet Dental Water Additive for Dogs Cats & Small Animals-Dog Dental Care for Bad Pet Breath-Oral Mouth Care That Fights Tartar, Plaque and Gum Disease- [17 oz] Dog Toothpaste Deodorizer Review:

My Jazz is 15 1/2 yrs old and I'm not taking the chance to anesthetize him @this ol' age with dental work just to get fresher breath. He has most of his teeth good or bad as we all do when we age but his breath was so over the top smelly & disgusting that I but exhausted buying products that claim fresher breath. Brushing was never an option since his mouth is so small. Most gels were just a peppermint cover up & He "hated" just hated any treatment. Solution: YES this product in water. Unbelievable. As God as my witness I rec'd 7/1/19 & put it in his water since it hardly even has a taste or scent and he is a big water drinker..Who knew? Today 7/2/19 and I ran my finger on his gum line & NO SMELL!! what a miracle worker this product is. No disgusting over the top smelly breath.. It's normal flora. Whatever this product is it's fame to claim is for reals. It does kill the toxins or bacteria that gives your doggie the bad breath. Forever thankful to have found this product. My ol' Jazzy is kissable once again..Thank you Premium Pet Dental Spray for this miracle worker.

TropiClean Fresh Breath Review:

LOVE THIS STUFF. My male Alhasa Apso had dragon breath, he would walk into the room and you could smell it, he is a crabby dog but loves to give kisses (on his terms) but letting him do so left such a foul odor on the skin that I no longer let him kiss me, just my husband would let him. After a month and one week of use I can tell you his breath is actually sweet smelling, no foul odor and the tarter build up that was there is thinning, his teeth are looking brighter. I had tried brushing his teeth (great peril doing so) I gave him chews to remove the tarter and help with breath, I purchased some tablets that were supposed to get rid of tarter and bad breath: none of that worked, at all. I will definetly purchase this again. Our other animals do not mind the water so long as the cats do not see me add the product, they look disgusted by it and walk away for about an hour, but it is worth it because their breath has also benifited from this. I saw where people complained of the bubbles, there are bubbles, a lot of them if you add the product to the bowl before or during the water addition, but there is minimal to no bubbles when the product is added dircetly to the water. I did taste the water with the product (I wasn't going to give it to my fur babies if tasted bad), there was no taste when done according to the directions. This is not a good product, it is a GREAT product and I thank you for producing it. Our house smells better with out dragon boy breath in it. I highly recomend this product to other pet owners.

Arm & Hammer Dog Dental Care Toothpaste for Dogs | No More Doggie Breath | Safe for Puppies Review:

This was the first doggie toothpaste that I ever bought. One of my girls was having an issue with tartar and plaque building up quickly between cleanings. My vet recommended that I try brushing her teeth at home. I really wasn't sure how well this would go, so I didn't want to spend a lot of money on something that I'd be unable to use. Most of the toothpastes that I found were on the expensive side, close to $20 (more in some cases). I found this one, it had good reviews, it was priced right, and Arm & Hammer is a reputable brand, so this was what I went with. It was easy for me to get my girl's teeth clean with this toothpaste and a finger-tip doggie dental toothbrush. The toothpaste has a consistency that you'd expect and goes pretty far. I don't see any need to go back and purchase a higher priced toothpaste since this one works so well. I'm basing my five star rating of its flavor by the fact that my baby didn't seem to mind the taste at all. This is a straightforward toothpaste that gets the job done at a competitive price. When I run out of this tube, I will buy another.

Vet’s Best Enzymatic Dog Toothpaste | Teeth Cleaning and Fresh Breath Dental Care Gel | Vet Formulated Review:

I have two dogs. One is a little over 1 year old. The other one is a 10 year old mediun size female I rescued recently. Therefore, I knew very little of her history. I did, however, knew right away that her teeth were is desperate need of brushing. I had extra arm & hammer enzymatic toothpaste in hand, but was going to need more soon. I have used other products from this brand and thought it will work well based on the ingredients listed.

Her gums and teeth were irritate due to the tartar build up and two of this ingredients are supposed to help with inflammation, which was my basis for purchasing it. I used this toothpaste along side water additives and her gums and teeth look and smell much better!

If you have concerns about the aloe vera and dogs please do a quick search by the Seattle times publication on the matter. Which state that is not aloe vera gel or juice that's toxic but another substance in the leaf. So if you have the actual plant then be concerned. There were also concerns in regards to the potential that it caused cancer which have also been cleared from the commercial products as they do not use the whole leaf. If you use whole leafs not just the aloe gel the worry.

Dental Fresh Water Additive - Original Formula for Dogs - Clinicially Proven, Simply Add to Pet’s Water Bowl to Whiten Teeth Review:

I admit it, I was skeptical of this product, but I was also desperate. My cat (who, as I have said in many other reviews, is an embarrassment to his species in terms of intelligence) has had bad breath for years because he doesn't chew dry food. Even those expensive treats meant to reduce plaque/odor go straight down the hatch, never touching a tooth. I eventually tried supplementing with wet food, which helped for a while before all sorts of oral bacteria got the memo and moved in, just making it worse. Did I mention that he's a Russian Blue mix and has those cute Siamese traits like licking EVERYTHING?

So not only did the furry demon child smell like throat fungus, now so did my hands and everything in my house. "Tartar treats" didn't work. I wasn't going to brush his teeth, because I value my life. Dental Fresh was my last resort. Figuring it was worth a try, I decided to order a bottle and pray. After all, this cat grew up on stagnant rainwater; surely, at least he couldn't mind it much.

The first thing I noticed was that his water was disappearing much more quickly than normal, as well as staying clean longer - no more scum and dirt in the bottom of the bowl. Cats have a notoriously low thirst drive, and he drinks so much more with the added Dental Fresh that I think the extra water is helping in and of itself. It did take a couple of weeks to get results on the odor front, but have a little patience. It's worth the wait. After almost three weeks, kitty's breath is back to a much more reasonable level, and he doesn't leave everything he licks smelling like death itself. Dental Fresh is now a staple in my house, and we're both happier for it. Thanks, SynergyLabs!

Virbac C.E.T. Enzymatic Oral Hygiene Chews for Cats Review:

A lot of cat parents know that they had better strap on the combat gear in order to do anything remotely medical to their furry children. This applies even more when you have rescued 4 kittens at 9 weeks old from a feral population. They are now just over 2 years of age and have an uncanny sense of when I am even thinking of "doing something to them " even as harmless as applying flea drops. What seems like a relatively simple process requires carefully planned strategies carried out with a military precision that would do our armed forces proud. So the bottom line is, there will be no brushing of the teeth of these 4 rascals. My Vet understood completely and recommended these Virbac Dental Chews.

My cats adore these fish flavored chews. Whenever I even go near the bag that they come in it starts to look like Cirque du Soliel for cats. They fly around the furniture squealing and yelping . They whine and moan like crack addicts without their fix if I am later than usual bringing these out.

The jury is still out on how well these will work long term on my cat's teeth, but the alternative for me is too terrifying to contemplate. I know for sure that the other low cost dental treats didn't do anything. The 4 star rating is mainly due to the high price. I feel as if these could be a little less expensive since I now have 4 addicts 😉 to keep supplied.
