    dogs teeth tarta

    ok lads,

    my wee best pal has had a food change from dry food to soft food (chappie) this is to do with his digestive issues,

    now to to aid with his tarta build up I got him a few chew sticks, but they last about 30 seconds and they have gone, I mate has said try a bit of antler he said he will chew it and this will help or at least do some good with the tarta build up.

    anyone done this with an older dog (10 human years)

    thanks in advance

    Bob and cozzy.

    Ours get Dentastix which helps keep tartar down. Lots of salt in them though. Raw bones will help too. But to be honest, anything that gets him using his teeth properly will work. Best thing though, is to get him onto a decent raw diet. I don't know of any dog that won't benefit from that
    A Man should be wise, but never too wise. He who does not know his fate in advance is free of care

    ok lads thank you,

    he suffers from pancreatitis so I have to be carful of what he eats, ( our I can find it on the kitchen floor not long after he has eaten it). hence the question of antler as he will not be able to swallow it but chew it with no ill effects,

    failng that hat I am a bit stuck

    Our two spaniels (10 &8) were costing a fortune in chew sticks, etc.. SWMBO asked her son who was a manager of the local Pets At Home what was available. He recommended a dog tooth gel by beaphar. We tried it and within two weeks their teeth were almost entirely clear of plaque and tartar.
    It is very simple to use. Simply rub the gel over the teeth, being flavoured, the dog moves it around its mouth with its tongue. The older dog had some digestive problems requiring surgery some two years ago but that did not prevent the use of the gel. I am most impressed by its performance.

    The best way to prevent tartar build up on dogs is to avoid giving them soft feed that breaks up easily. it pre wetted dry dog feed. If you have to feed them wet soggy feed then give them something chewy after to clean their teeth naturally such as bone/ raw hide etc. Even carrots would work if they like it.
    A natural diet of meat and bone and skin would prevent tartar build up

    dogs teeth tarta

    If you can't feed raw
    Just give him a bone from butchers couple times a week ....cleans his teeth gives him bit of marrow & it will keep him occupied for a hour here n there ..

    Don't know about old dogs n antlers but I keep all roe antler I shoot & give dog a bit every so often .....again spotless teeth.
