Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Who here uses dental chews? What brands have you had the most success with as far as cleaning and breath improvement? We’ve used Greenies but have been looking at Merrick lately. Have made multiple attempts at teeth brushing and they all fail!

Raw bones are good at cleaning teeth as well as chicken feet. Don't do much for breath but keeping tartar under control does pretty well for that in itself.

If dental health is the reason, I would recommend trying a finger toothbrush (they sell them at most pet stores). I find that dogs who refuse a regular brushing will allow them Smile As far as dental chews, I use mostly Whimzees or Greenies (greenies have grain-free, which is needed for my brother's dog). I like using the raw bones and antlers for tartar control. The reason raw bones are specified is the cooked bones shatter when chewed and if eaten can cause digestive tract issues. If bad breath is the reason you want the chews, you could also try an enzyme spritz or an enzyme toothpaste. Let me know how everything works out!

I use water buffalo horns and benebones for promoting chewing even though these are more permanent of a chew or chew toy. Most items that dogs chew on can help decrease or limit tartar buildup on.
