I wrote the first review because I think this product is excellent for dog teeth cleaning. However, I have recently become concerned about the zinc gluconate ingredient in light of the recent recall of Zicam zinc nasal spray for humans. Apparently, zinc is great at killing bacteria and viruses and also at killing your nerve cells. I would like to know if the level of zinc in this product is high enough to be of concern for the taste buds of my dog. Until the company convinces me that zinc is safe for oral and nasal use, I think maybe it is wise to limit the use of this rinse. Biotene also makes a "maintenance gel" which has the enzymes but not the zinc (check the ingredient label before quoting me on this). I will switch to the gel just to be on the safe side. Sue

This product works great! The fizzing action at the gumline shows you that the enzymes are activly cleaning the teeth. This product works best when rubbed directly on the teeth and gums with a sponge applicator to allow for maximum contact time. Hold your dog's muzzle closed as you apply to the outer surfaces so the tonque is not immediately licking it off.
