    DefaultDoes anyone use a spray dental product to clean their dog's teeth?

    There was an infomercial on tv last night about a spray dental product that cleans dog's teeth. Wondered if it really worked since it's a pain to brush Duke's teeth because he likes the toothpaste so well that he tries to eat the brush and all.

    I haven't seen the spray, but I started using Paul Mitchell dental wipes...they work pretty well and MUCH easier than a tooth brush!

    I saw the commercial too... I was thinking it sounded like a gimmic to me. I can't see how spraying teeth could clean them... I wonder what's in it...

    I use a foaming dental spray on my dogs but I am not consistent. It claims to help teeth but I use it for a breath freshner. Made by tropiclean.

    After some google research, I've found several brands that "gently dissolve" plaque over a period of time. Seems the key is being consistent with the application. I'd bought Duke nylabones and even some "real" bones in the past and they kept him plaque free. However, his nylabones got cut up with the lawn mower (probably threw the blade out of wack) and I was nervous about the bone because he somehow chewed a piece off so I threw it away. I might try a dental spray product the next time I'm in a petsmart or someplace that sells it. Might be less trouble to just get him a new nylabone and keep it inside the house.

    I use Petzlife (I think thats the name?) with my miniature pinscher, as toy breeds are prone to bad teeth. I also use a dental scraper and a toothbrush, and she will be seven and has never needed a dental. (thats really really good for a toy breed dog, lol!)

    It's a natural product, main ingredient is grapefruit extract I believe. Not cheap, but cheaper than a dental, ha! :P

    I've heard good things about this product. Was thinking of trying for the small dogs. My agility instructor uses a holistic vet and the vet uses this stuff before she does a dental treatment on her clients.
