Teeth Cleaning and Yorkies
Trixie turned 6 this year - and I have to admit - we have not done a great job brushing her teeth. Like many dogs, they just don't like it. So we tried things like Plaque sprays and special toothpastes - but it was time finally for a cleaning. And I am always afraid to have a tiny dog put under.
But she survived and bounced back! And we are determined to NOT let her teeth get dirty from here on out. Our vet highly recommended this line called Clenz-a-dent. Clenz-A-Dent PlaqueOff contains the seaweed Ascophyllum nodosum which is a natural agent that reduces the formation of dental plaque, tartar [calculus] and bad breath. You can add it to their food - or their water - so we're trying that for now - I will let you know how it works.
(You can get it discounted at Amazon - cheaper than the vet!~)
