Liquid pet dental care helpful or harmful?
Is the liquid dental care additive for water healthy for dogs and cats? Or can it be dangerous? Does it depend on the brand? If so, what are safe brands to use? Is it a good alternative to teeth brushing or cleaning?
This is just an assumption on my part, but those liquid products will certainly not be an adequate substitute to teeth brushing. For me it's just common sense, how would we expect some liquid to help a dog remove tarter and calculus? That doesn't work for humans and it won't work for dogs. In fact, I find teeth brushing to be inadequate for my dog too. The single most effective method I've found to help my dog's teeth are giving her raw bones to chew on. In fact, if your dog was on a completely natural raw diet, it probably wouldn't need any brushing. No animals brush their teeth in the wild and they don't have these problems. The raw bones made a world of difference to me, after one use her teeth were almost completely white. Conventional kibble makes their teeth awful. Ignore the claims that kibble cleans teeth.
Your pet's health is unique to him/her. I would consult your vet before adding questionable liquids to your pet's water supply. Is the additive healthy? Is your pet healthy? Does she have any known allergies. You would ask a doctor before giving your children something you weren't sure of, the same caution is needed where pets are concerned.
