Remove Plaque From Your Dog’s Teeth

Brushing Stick for Dog Dental Care.

Dog Pet Brushing Stick

This toy is designed to last a long time. It helps remove plaque from your dog’s teeth and is a good gum massager. The thing I like best about this product is that it’s made of food grade materials and it has been approved by the FDA.

Bones/Chews

Nylabone Durachew Textured Bone for a Large Dog 

I’ve never tried these for my dog but I can easily see the benefits. In addition to satisfying your dog’s need to chew, this synthetic chew toy is designed to last a long time. Unlike a real bone, this won’t hurt your dog’s teeth. They come in different flavors and a variety of sizes. 

The variations in texture design are said to help control plaque and tartar buildup on your dog’s teeth. 

PetKare Pet Finger Toothbrushes

These are a fantastic way to reduce plaque from your dog’s teeth. These reusable finger tooth brushes help you to get around the teeth and gums. A standard toothbrush is a lot harder to maneuver inside a dog’s mouth. In addition, no calories!

Remember to use toothpaste formulated for dogs. Toothpaste made for us mere mortals is dangerous to dogs if they swallow it.  And they will. 

Vets Best Complete Enzymatic Dental Care Kit

I like the idea of including enzymes, Neem Oil, Grapefruit Seed Extract, Baking Soda and Aloe in the formula. The packaging is minimal and the product is clearly designed to help remove plaque from your dog’s mouth.  This kit comes with a triple-headed toothbrush and toothpaste gel.

Non Surgical Ways to Reduce and Remove Plaque From Your Dog’s Teeth

Plaque Off Powder

This is a great  product if you have the grit to use it regularly over the long haul. This is a little more action oriented than simply giving your dog specially formulated oral health food.

Plaque Off Powder is 100% natural and is made from a type of seaweed.  It’s an interesting product that people claim works well at loosening tartar. However, you’re still going to have to manually brush their teeth, or continue feeding them oral health dog food formulas. 

Stainless Steel Tooth Scaler for Dogs and Cats

This is a tricky one. Scaling your own dog’s teeth is risky if you don’t know what you’re doing. Even the most docile dog can move suddenly or become startled. One wrong move and that scaler could wind up in your dog’s gums. 

*Personally, I wouldn’t try scaling my dog’s teeth at home. I don’t know how to hold the scaler properly, where to start, or how much pressure to put. A trained person will be able to get tartar safely away from the gumline and off the teeth.  If I tried it, I’m sure I would slip and end up cutting the gums.
