Dentahex Oral Rinse by Vet Solutions (8 oz) with Chlorhexidine 0.12% and Zince, is an antimicrobial oral rinse for reducing plaque and freshening breath in dogs and cats. The unique formulation provides anti-plaque and anti-calculus properties thus aiding in the prevention of tooth and gum disease.
Shake well before each use. Rinse daily following each meal or as directed by your veterinarian. Gently lift the upper lip to expose the teeth and gums. Point and squeeze to apply a gentle stream along the gum line. Oral Rinse disperses rapidly and completely covers the entire oral cavity, even difficult to reach areas. Avoid touching the gums with the applicator tip to avoid any injury in case of movement of your pet.
Works, but would prefer flavorless formula by zeusie from Indianapolis, IN01/01/2013
My cat has very severe kidney failure and the condition has made his breath really bad. Apparently the condition affects his saliva. I want to prevent dental issues caused by this condition and bought the Vet Dentahex oral rinse to help. His breath is definitely better after applying the rinse, so I have to assume it's working. I suspect he really hates the mint taste; I would prefer it be a tasteless formula to eliminate this aspect since it's hard enough to hold him still to squirt the stuff in his mouth. I'm holding off on giving it more stars until his next dental check-up to see how well the product works between visits.

As a professional groomer, i find this product easy to use, does the job and is inexpensive.
Fresher breath, hopefully better checkup reviews by Tina from Orange County, CA11/06/2012
My vet recommended this, and thus far it's been a good product. My dogs have fresher breath, and I hope to get a better review about tartar at our next dental appointment. If that report is positive, I'll change the rating to 5 stars.
This stuff is fabulous! by LisaLisa from Alabama10/22/2012
I put it on a cotton flat meshy piece that I bought a bunch of from my vet. It's not as absorbant as a cotton ball and I rub it along their teeth and gums once a day. It smells refreshing and helps keep their teeth in good shape and is easier and as effective as brushing.
I think there's a benefit from using this product regarding dental cleaning and decay/tartar prevention.
Dentahex: wait and see? by PJ from Hill Country, TX10/10/2013
A very trusted DVM friend insisted I use Dentahex with my little rescue Dachshund. She had scaling and many teeth extracted less than a year ago, and is already needing another cleaning. My DVM says this product would significantly decrease (if not eliminate) need for scaling - and therefore might not be suggested by other vets since scaling is a pretty good revenue stream in many vet settings. My dog hates it: she fights application and after is really not happy with me. I tasted it: it's terribly bitter - so I don't blame her for being resistant. It remains to be seen if the product works as well as it's been suggested.
Solved breath problem by Suzie05/30/2012
This product is great. My dog hates it but no longer has bad breath. His breath was unbearable even after faithfully brushing his teeth. Now I only use this maybe once a week.
dentahex for dog breath by sam from slc utah06/04/2013
item is ok - at least its safe for dogs! dog doesn't like taste - but it does "temperarily" freshen breath. doesn't do much to solve long term problem though
