The short answer to the question posed in the title is, 'Yes.' It works, and it works well. What is Plaque Attack for dogs, how does it work, and how does it compare to other means of tartar removal for dogs?
Plaque Attack is an all-natural oral care spray for dogs and cats. It is formulated to remove plaque buildup safely and gently, without brushing or scraping. All ingredients are human grade, so there is no question about their safety and purity.
To use it, spray on your dog's teeth daily, taking care to hit the larger tartar buildups. Your dog will lick his lips, which helps mix the ingredients with his saliva and insure that his teeth and gums are coated evenly. The best time to spray is just before bedtime so that it has a chance to work overnight. If you must spray during the day, it's best to withhold food and water for about 30 minutes after spraying to prevent dilution.
After two weeks, you should start wiping your dog's teeth before spraying. This will remove any loosened plaque. This important step is often overlooked. Tartar is filled with bacteria, so you want to minimize the amount of loosened plaque your dog swallows to prevent this bacteria from getting into your dog's system. Some owners who didn't wipe their dogs' teeth have reported their dogs having mild digestive problems from the swallowed plaque.
After a month, you can reduce applications to a couple of times a week. This will prevent the re-appearance of tartar buildup. It is important to continue this maintenance routine. Plaque Attack for dogs is not a one-shot deal. Just like with humans, a regular oral maintenance program will prevent further tartar problems.
The primary alternative to Plaque Attack for dogs is professional cleaning by a veterinarian. Your dog must be put under anesthesia for the cleaning. This involves the risk, however slight, that your dog may die. The risk is higher in small dogs, older dogs, and dogs with health issues. The cost is not insignificant either. Cleanings can run several hundred dollars, and vets recommend that a cleaning be done twice a year. By contrast, a six month supply of Plaque Attack costs about $20.
Plaque Attack for dogs is easy to use, effective, and inexpensive. Do the research yourself, but at the end of the day, you will find that it is the best method for controlling tartar buildup in your dog.
