Doggie Dental Issues / Gingivitis

If your dogs are anything like my two furballs they hate getting their teeth brushed. I chose the word hate but should really use despise.

Both my little princesses have gingivitis. Bebe has a more serious case of it and has already lost 7 teeth. Jolie also has it but no teeth have been removed.

I wish I knew 5 years ago what I know now. Basically what works, what doesn’t, what’s worth it and what’s out there to confuse you and empty out your wallet.

The two products I absolutely swear by are:
Vet Solutions Enzadent Oral Care Chews for Dogs

Leba III Dental Spray

After continued use the amount of reduced decay was quite significant. This made me very happy, I went from taking my dogs for a teeth cleaning, yo uknow the process that puts the dog under and they clean the teeth that way and cost a small fortune, to simply relying on these products.

My dogs eat organic dog food and sip filtered water. I make sure the treats they eat are healthy and don’t contain corn, but the fact of the matter is that things like gingivitis are sometimes hereditary, which was the case for Bebe and Jolie.

Here’s a video of just how much Bebe loves her chews, little does she know she’s brushing her teeth!
