rascalsmom Posted March 7, 2016 Share Posted March 7, 2016 Phoebe, who we've had for 2.5 years, and who just turned five, had her annual checkup a few weeks ago. The vet remarked that her teeth "looked beautiful"! She's not had a dental since she came off the track, and I don't brush her teeth. Her breath is horrendous, though, so I asked the vet about that. She said she could do a dental, but in the absence of brushing afterward it would just get bad again (and seriously, why would I want her to have a dental if she doesn't really NEED it??); or I could try this gel they've had a lot of luck with. I opted to try the gel--$17 vs hundreds for a dental--and I've been using it on her twice a day. She loves the stuff! And now, less than a month later, her breath is noticeably better!! So I thought I'd share it with you all, who may be have a similar issue. It's called Oratene maintenance oral gel and I bought it at the vets. Might also be available online, I imagine. So far, so good, and I am thankful to finally have a greyhound who doesn't have awful teeth! I've even started brushing her teeth, thinking that if she really has "ok" teeth, it's in my best interest to keep them that way. Quote Phoebe (Belle's Sweetpea) adopted 9/2/13.
