I know there are a lot of dog lovers here so I thought I would start this thread to see if anyone has noticed any success with this product. http://www.milkbone.com/products/brushing-chews-dental-treats After having spent over $400 to have our 5 year old Lab's teeth cleaned while under anesthesia I decided to try these to see if they really work. The vet thought the anesthesia route was the best way to do it since they were so bad and while under the anesthesia they removed a very small growth on his elbow as well. So far we are noticing a significant improvement in his breath but I think a lot of that may be due to the deep cleaning. They ended up being a very nice white after the cleaning. No extractions were needed. As far as if they really are brushing his teeth, I think it's too early to tell yet since they were just cleaned two months ago. They still are just as white as they were after the cleaning. Have any of you experienced what you consider proof that the brushing chews do work? Are there other options out there that help their teeth. Actual brushing would probably be the best solution but I usually find myself never getting around to it as that's what let them get so bad to begin with. Many use biscuits but I have not found one that seems to do the job. He was on biscuits and still ended up needing the cleaning. Would love to hear about any solutions or recommendations.
