  • I have read about products that can be sprayed in the dog or cats' mouth to prevent plaque/tartar. Some products are added to the animal's drinking water. Do they really work?

  • I have experience with CET mostly and my Doc's don't encourage their use much but are quite happy with the enzyme based rawhide chews. This enzyme is also in the rinses and pastes and help with plaque control. The enzyme products are pretty good replacement for the fluoride human products that aren't recommended for pet because pets don't 'rinse and spit'. So yes, if used on a regular basis, should help with plaque and tartar. There is also a product called Oravet that coat the teeth and prevent bacteria and plaque on a weekly basis. You can learn more at Thanks for your good question. It's hard to get everything in a blog but I'll do my best.
