best on the market ! by chertibs from UPSTATE NEW YORK07/31/2011
I have tried many tooth cleaning products for my 3 yorkies, and by far this is the one to beat all others. My vet. says it is a great product and I agree. I love it.
zinc may be an issue by sue from Berkeley, CA02/04/2010
I think that the level of zinc in this product should be a consideration given the recent problems found with zinc toxicity in denture adhesive and in Zicam for humans. Without knowing the concentration of zinc in this product, I think it is too risky to use given that your pooch will swallow it. Just because zinc is great for killing mouth microbs does not mean it is wise to use this product
A great tooth gel by Len P from Staten Island, NY02/24/2012
I've been using Maxi-Guard on my dogs for nearly 10 years now. I make it a point to "brush" my dogs' teeth every night after our walk. I use a piece of cotton to apply the gel. My dogs have never needed dental cleaning. My vet is impressed!
