Does anyone know of or recommend any products, toys, procedures, etc that will get rid of tartar buildup, whiten dog's teeth and reduce bad breath? Please inform!
I just got a new corgi who came to me with a LOT of tartar buildup and I've been trying to reduce it and get her teeth to a more gleaming white. I have a couple of dental tools which I've been sterilizing and then using to scrape off the plaque (she's really good to let me do that), but there are some spots that I just can't get to. I've also been brushing her teeth every 2-3 days with enzymatic dog tooth paste. She chews on nylabones too, but not all that often, and doesn't seem to be very interested in other toys.
All of this seems to be helping, but her teeth just aren't up to snuff. I'd rather not have to send her to the vet for an expensive (and dangerous, as I'm quite sure that most vets put them under for the procedure) teeth cleaning, so I was just wondering if anyone had tried/had good results with any products on the market to help whiten teeth or reduce tartar (e.g. dental washes to add to drinking water, supplements, special dental toys).
