wouldn't be without this

Having 3 herpes cats and having the calici virus in all 3 of them, this maintenance gel helps keep red gum flare ups under control from the herpes.
good for their mouth
Again, vet recommended this product. Helps with keeping their mouth cleaner and teeth in better shape. We use on our cats at night when we take up their food so it works in their mouth overnight to preserve their teeth/gums. Since we can't brush their teeth, this is next best thing.
Another great product!
I use this product once a week (more if needed). I apply with a clean finger to the gums and teeth right at gum/tooth line, in circular motion where possible. This is another great V-biotene 'canine' product.

When my 2 1/2 yr old male was about six months old, he had severe gingivitis. There's a technical term that I cannot remember. My vet did the scraping surgery and it didn't help. He prescribed the maintenance gel after a two week course of Biotene Antiseptic gel. Ricky loves the taste of it, and his gums are in great shape now thanks to Biotene Maintenace gel.
Expensive But Great!

This gel works great! We were using it on our dogs and cat but it got so expensive (even though Entirely Pets has the BEST price) that we decided to try an alternative. We now use Tropiclean Fresh Breath Clean Teeth Gel (4 fl oz) for our dogs only (because it is super minty) and biotene for our cat. Our vet is constantly praising our pets great oral health! Highly recommend both products!
Biotene Works !!!!
from Port Ludlow Wa.12/11/2012
Just returned from an annual veterinarian exam with my Doxy - Lena. I have been brushing her teeth with Biotene daily ever since she had a large number of extractions due to dental carries at age four last year. A clean bill of health and lack of dental problems has been the result !!

It has a pleasant flavor so my dog enjoys toothbrushing time, but it isn't so yummy that my dog wants to chew on the toothbrush.
Works well if you actually brush pet's teeth
from Southern CA11/06/2012
Tried several of the spray on type products but they were not effective. This works very well but you need to brush with it. I tasted it before using it on my Maltese & it has no taste....so it is not a problem. However, brushing is the only way to clean their teeth & with this in mind, it is a very good product & would definitely recommend it.
Best Dental Product
Triple enzyme combination, just as that of Zymox products, natural, no harsh toxic chemicals and an excellent cleanser. Easy to use, safe for both dogs and cats. I love it!
Teeth so BRIGHT It Makes Me Smile
from Evansville IN10/26/2011
I have had my dog, Baxter's teeth cleaned once, but no more. Biotene for dogs is outstanding. Our vet was even amazed how white, bright, and clean ALL his teeth were. Even the back molars! I have tried other toothpastes, some he did not care for the taste or were gels that were hard to apply.
Biotene is truly the BEST.
by Island Girl10/23/2011
Our 13-year-old rat terrier had a bad bout with kidney failure due in part to bad oral health. Daily use of the Biotene Gel has greatly improved her gums.
if you put the recommended size stripe of this on your pet, it won't last very long at all, especially if you have a big dog. I am using it in conjunction with the Oratene Drinking Water Additive. I use it on the 2 dogs whose teeth were the worst. Now all my dogs teeth are beautiful, though it is hard to say how much of that success can be contributed to the Maintenance Gel vs. a combo of both, since I used both. You have to be patient. I thought it wasn't doing much, but stuck with it and got results. None of my dogs teeth were really bad though, even the ones whose teeth had a little more tartar.
Great stuff, works on tartar
I got this from my vet when my Golden had a lot of tartar and I didn't want to put her under at her age to clean her teeth. I started putting in on every night and within two weeks the tartar was gone and her fresh breath returned. Now I use this on all my dogs and cats.
VERY important information if you are shipping to Canada. Read the shipping info cause the cost
was nearly 50 Dollars on a order of 180 dollars.

Biotene Veterinarian Maintenance/Antiseptic Gel
Recommended by my vet
I bought a tube at my vet's (previously known as Biotene) and it helped my geriatric cat's gums, which were a bit inflamed because of receding gum on her canine. At 22, there's no way I'd let the vet sedate her to clean her teeth. So this was the other option. I think it's tasteless because my cat doesn't foam like she usually does when she tastes something she doesn't like.
Excellent dental product
from Pacific Northwest11/11/2011
I started using Biotene antiseptic oral gel on my cat's severe gingivitis. In less than one month, his gums were normal, with no remaining infection. I've switched now to Biotene's maintenance oral gel. The best part--he doesn't mind the taste of these products!
Best product ever
from Honolulu, HI11/18/2012
My cat suffers from severe and chronic gingivitis so I tried the Biotene products and love them. I think my cat does, too, and they seem to be working in stabilizing his gingivitis. Great products.

Helps keep fur where Toby licks from turning orange from the enzymes in his mouth
I have been buying this dog tooth paste for years, getting it at a Vet here in Calgary, AB. I believe it to be very good. I found it much cheaper on line at EntirelyPets. BUT-----
I ordered 10 tubes of each at a cost of 180 Dollars
and they charged me 20 Dollars for shipping and handling for a total of 200 Dollars. When I went to the post office here to pick it up, I was charged 28 Dollars by XPO. WHAT????- I was mad to say the least. XPO says that Entirelypets put on a value of 420 Dollars. I am trying to get some money back.

Biotene Veterinarian Maintenance/Antiseptic Gel
Tooth gel that really works
by A favorite product
I've been using Biotene myself for several years. I was thrilled to find this oral maintenance gel for dogs. I brush my dog's teeth most nights. He would tell you I let him chew a toothbrush most nights. Then I use the gel. If I skip the toothbrush, I use just the gel. He came to us at one year old with some tartar on his teeth. They actually looked better after a few months of this gel and brushing than when he was one year old and his teeth are still looking very clean at age 4. I never had that result with any other dog toothpaste with any other dog. This is a super product.
Very good for relief
from Los Angeles03/03/2013
I have a older cat with major gum inflammation from stomatitis. She drools all over the bed and her mouth is beet red. There was the odor of bacteria also on the bedspread. This product has given her a great deal of relief. I really feel the pain has subsided somewhat. There is no subsitute for vet care, but this has helped in the interim.
Only thing that helps
from Honolulu, Hawaii05/23/2013
I've tried a series of antibiotics and mouthwashes on my Maltese and none seemed to help him. Once I started using the Oratene Maintenance Oral Gel he got better right away.
Best with Oral B Sonicare Compact Head
Keeps all three of my girls' teeth pretty clean with daily use. Haven't had dentals in a long time.
I'm so glad to have found this brand over others I have used. It works very well for an elderly feline who does not like to have her teeth brushed!
Easy & acceptable
Usually I brush the cats' teeth everyday; however, it does get time consuming with six cats. Purchased Biotene since Biotene makes human products that I like very much. This is my first tube so I'm unable to say if it works as effectively on animals as humans. The cats don't mind the taste when I apply it with a cotton swab on to their gum-line.
I've been using the gel 2X per day for two weeks, rubbing it on the gums with a Q-tip. This isn't a cure for gingivitis. However, I do believe it's soothing and helps a great deal in making it more comfortable for my cats to eat. The gel is clear and tasteless and really not that difficult to apply. I would recommend it and plan on ordering more.
