So Fresh and So Clean Clean!
on January 27, 2017
I have a Maltese/Shih Tzu who is about 15 pounds. If you have a small dog, then you probably know that they inevitably have teeth problems.
I had Timber's teeth cleaned at the vet in conjunction with his neuter surgery since he was already being put under. A few months later, long story short, he ended up with a broken jaw after rough-housing with my German Shepherd. He was on soft food for three months, and of course the tartar build-up came right back during that time.
After a check-up at the vets office, they tried to sell me teeth cleaning again. There was no way I was going to subject my little guy to being put under again (he was under for 3-1/2 hours for the jaw surgery, plus was under for the neuter and initial teeth cleaning a few months prior).
I decided to give these a try to see if they would help before doing anything more drastic and I couldn't believe the results after a couple of weeks. Nearly all the tartar was gone and his breath had improved temendously.
I really like these, because although the big ones I give to my German Shepherd are very hard (as they need to be), these "teenie" ones are just a little bit soft and perfect for my little dog - especially with the jaw injury.
One tip is to find the "add-on" version of these which actually saves you a lot of money if you're placing an order for other Amazon things. Definitely way more affordable than the big box pet stores.
