I was recently reading an article regarding how pet owners still aren’t getting the importance of caring for their dog’s teeth.  FYI, the plaque and tarter caked on your dog’s teeth is doing more harm to your dog than just looking bad.

Did you know that your dog (or cat’s) oral dental health is the second most important indicator that your vet uses to determine your pet’s overall health?

Unfortunately, pet owners barely ever look at their dog’s teeth at all, or relate any health issues the dog may be having to the quality of their dog’s teeth.

If you’re one of these pet owners, make a change today and start lifting up those jowls and taking a good hard look into your dog’s mouth regularly.  Does your dog have bad breath?  If so, you my friend are not doing your job as a dog owner.  I’m sorry, but it’s true. 🙁

But, don’t feel bad, it’s never to late to start the task of caring for your dog’s teeth daily! Here’s a short video that discusses how to tell if your dog’s teeth are abscessed.

Cleaning Your Dog’s Teeth Is Much Easier Than It Used To Be

I wanted to talk about how easy it’s become for dog owners to clean their dog’s teeth.  Products have really come a long way.  While it’s still important to use a toothbrush occasionally; routinely using a good spray that cleans your dog’s teeth will also get the job done.  A lot depends on the product though, and they ARE NOT all the same.  I’m very funny about what I use on my dogs. The product must be 100% natural with no fillers or junk added to cheapen the product at all.

Although I still brush my dogs teeth, I don’t brush them nearly as often; I just spray them daily before bed, making sure that I get to the back teeth as well.  Doing this before is the best time, giving the product time to work and do its magic.  That’s it!

I think that many dog and cat owners just don’t realize the options available to them for caring for their pets teeth today. They go to the vet and the vet tells the owner that many of the dog’s problems are due to his teeth. The vet recommends putting the dog under anesthesia and cleaning the teeth.  He shares the cost with the owner and now the owner struggles with what to do.

Caring for your dog’s teeth doesn’t have to be difficult or costly. On the other hand, please don’t rely on biscuits and bones to do the job because they simply DO NOT WORK (unless feeding a raw diet and including knuckle bones which I do not recommend you start now if your dog is older) regardless of what the packaging tells you. This is simply marketing 101.

It’s Time To Start Taking Dog Dental Care Serious

I can’t stress just how important it is to care for your dog’s teeth on regular basis. The problem is that most people wait until their dog is older and the teeth and gums are already in very bad shape and the veterinarian wants to put the dog under to clean the teeth. This can of course be very risky for older dogs and many vets won’t do it.


Gingivitis: This is an inflammation of the gums which is caused by the build-up of plaque, tarter and disease-inducing bacteria above and below the gum line. Symptoms include: red and swollen gums, bleeding at the gum line and bad breath. Can be reversed with regular teeth cleaning. I know how hard it is to brush a dog’s teeth and try and get them clean. Years ago I started using a spray called “DentaSure” and I still use it regularly on my dogs today.

Periodontal Disease

This is an infection between the teeth and gums and it is very, very painful. Besides resulting in tooth loss, it can spread infection to the heart and throughout the body. Bad dental hygiene is a huge contributor to heart disease in both people and pets.

Symptoms include: tooth pain, loose teeth, sneezing, nasal discharge and bad breath.

The good news is that Periodontal Disease can also be treated with DentaSure. This is a guaranteed product that truly works wonders even on the worst of oral hygiene in dogs including Periodontal Disease. But, you HAVE TO USE IT REGULARLY!  You can’t expect results if you don’t use it as recommended.  An occasional spray here and there isn’t going to do the job.

Follow the instructions and use it as it says on the bottle!

1 simple step – you open your dog’s mouth and give a little spray on the teeth twice daily for the first month and literally watch the plaque and tarter disappear. I was amazed when I first used it on my dobie Jenna. Even though I brushed her teeth routinely, I still couldn’t remove the plaque that covered her back molars.

All natural DentaSure works and that’s the bottom line for anyone whose dog (or cat) is suffering with Gingivitis or Periodontal Disease. Using Dentasure everyday continuously did the trick for removing the brown plaque and tarter on Jenna’s back teeth.  It restores the teeth and gums for a fraction of the cost of having your pet’s teeth cleaned by a vet. Dog owners can restore their dog’s oral health without a toothbrush and without having to place their dog under anesthesia.

I only endorse products that I use on my own dogs and products that I know will make a difference for my visitors and their fur babies. DentaSure contains “no alcohol” and does not need to be refrigerated which are other reasons why I endorse this product vs others that are on the market.

    Thank you Janie, that is probably the most helpful blog post I’ve read in a long time. I have three senior pets, one a little 10 pound poodle who is like a pirrhana when I try to brush his teeth, another a now-mosty-tamed feral cat who wouldn’t think of allowing a toothbrush in, and a bit 90 pound dog who gets completely squirrely at the thought of dental care. They’re all too old to be anesthetizing unnecessarily for dentals, so I’m thrilled to hear about DentaSure. I’m going to order some today. I’ll let you know how it goes with my pack.

      Hi Vicki:
      Thank you and I’m glad that you found the post helpful. I always had so much difficulty with brushing my dog’s teeth and it became more like going through the motions, but not really doing the job. I too was thrilled to find DentaSure, but even more thrilled that it actually worked. I now use alot of their products including the flea and tick spray too.

      I would really love your feedback after you try it out Vicki. You have quite a little pack there; I would love to see a picture. 😮

    I want to try Dentasure on my 10 year old toy poodle, because I think she is to old for anethesia. My question is, there is a lot of gray gunk around her gums, and I’m worried that she will digest all that bacteria. How does that stuff work?
    Thank you,

      Hi Debbie:
      I apologize for the delay in getting back to you. I wanted to check with Natural Wonder Products regarding your question. Personally, I’ve never had a problem even with older rescue dogs whose teeth are often in very bad shape. Anyway, here’s what Gary had to say:

      Hi Janie,
      The gray junk around her dog’s teeth is indeed filled with bacteria and is often mechanically removed during a scaling by a conventional vet. This can be a $300 to $700 procedure, but is very effective. DentaSure will kill the bacteria and – yes – her dog will swallow it.

      While it’s a disgusting thought, dead bacteria are no more harmful to the system than drinking water is. Dogs and humans swallow live bacteria with every swallow. This is of no consequence due to the hydrochloric acid in the stomach, which kills off most of the population before it enters the system. The immune system should take care of any survivors.

      If she’s still worried about her dog swallowing bacteria – alive or dead – she can balance her dog’s immune system with our Primalix Immune Herbal Extract – Functional Food Drops. An even better combo is the Primalix Immune and MaxoTox Herbal-Mineral Detoxicant. Imagine how healthy her dog would be with a strong immune system, reduced toxins from food and the environment, AND clean, white, bacteria-free teeth!

      Hope this helps.

      So, I hope this helps Debbie.
      Janie 😮

    Will this help if the teeth are already loose? Or should I have them cleaned first and then start using this product?

    • janie

      If the teeth are loose, you definitely need to have a vet take a look because if they’re loose, they may need pulled.

      If you can have teeth cleaned first, then that will certainly help you by starting out with a clean set of chompers and using the DentaSure for general maintenance.

      Hi Tammy:

      I’m sorry to hear about your boy. Please share what you feed him (diet, supplements and treats). What are you doing with teeth after the cleaning?
