My father and I took a file and filed off plaque after I saw this post and realized that my dog needed better dental care. It worked great. I'll be brushing her teeth more and getting her dental bones.

I never brushed my dogs teeth nor will I.

They always have a bone to chew on. If you dont want to use a raw bone, you can get the basted, already cooked, knuckle bones. I get mine at Trader Joes.

Greenies about 2-3 times a week
Dried Sweet potatoes supposed to help clean the plaque off once a week
Brush Teeth once a week trying for more

A friend in my agility class suggested using short ribs from the butcher she says her vet is always commenting on her dogs clean clean teeth yet she never brushes her dogs teeth! anyone tried those? Thanx for your input!
bones from the butchers are the best, scraps on supermarket meat areas can be found.

thats our dogs main food, a good feed of meat 2 or 3 times a week. Especiially the stringy bits, thats what buster get right into, it works as a floss.
daisy we found today (becaue she doesnt enjoy bones much) likes dries pigs ears.

I brush TOki's teeth once or twice a week but I can never reach his back tooth so I still give him some rawhide bones hoping that it will clean his back.

What's wrong with Iams? Did it make your dog's teeth fall out?
