    We originally bought this to try on our previous (elderly) dog who refused to let us near her mouth and whose teeth were so caked with tartar. We no longer felt it was safe to have her undergo cleaning at the vet. We really didn't expect this to work. We saw an improvement within a week, and her teeth were clean (!) within a month. Our new dog will not let us near his teeth, either, even though he'll let us examine his teeth. Our vet wanted him to start on a veggie dental chew (he's a hypo dog), but he just ate them and they didn't do the job, so we went back to Oratene. We've gotten several comments about how clean his teeth look and how do we do it? Oratene. It works for our dogs.

    Telling everyone I know with pets!
    June 30, 2016
    I have already recommended this product to friends and relatives I know who have cats and dogs. My three dogs and three cats seem to be benefiting from the additive and do not notice any difference in the water. Soon I will give them the breath test to make sure it is improving and check the tartar on the teeth. Some of my pets are getting too old to get their teeth cleaned by the vet since they have to be anaesthetized.

    This is a simple way to help avoid plaque build-up on a dog's teeth. It is easy to mix. Our dog's teeth and gums look a lot better since we've been using it.

    No more smelly dog breath!
    May 15, 2016
    This stuff is amazing! All 3 of my dogs have much better smelling breath. It's so easy to use, just pump it in the water and fill the bowl. It is odorless and tasteless. My vet even noticed the difference and said their teeth look great.She thought I had been brushing their teeth, but it was just this added to their water. Wonderful product!

    Fresh Breath ! Clean Teeth!
    April 10, 2016
    I have been using Oratene on my dogs for the past five years, in between their regular teeth cleanings. This product helps keep their breath fresh and helps keep their teeth cleaner. Less tarter buildup. I have Shih Tzu and it is so hard to brush their teeth. Just adding it to their water is a great way to keep the tarter from building up on their teeth. Oratene and a good diet keep their teeth in great shape . I highly recommend using Oratene. Easy to use smelly dog breath!

    It works

    I found "Little Bit" in my barn 14 years ago, very underweight and hungry. She was probably 6 months old at the time. Took her to the vet and got her on her way to wellness. At that time the vet noticed she was missing some teeth. After her shots and a good diet, the vet cleaned her teeth. Since then, her water has been supplemented with oratene. What teeth she has now are clean and in good condition, and her breath is fresh. This is the easiest way to clean and protect your pets teeth. Mix 2 pumps in a quart of water and you are good to go. Refrigerate till the container needs to be refilled.

    Our border terrier had to have 4 teeth extracted 2 years ago and the vet suggested we used Oratene. I have also added 'proper' dental chewies, etc to her repertoire to hopefully keep her teeth as tartar free as possible. The good news is that this past month she had her teeth cleaned and did not have ANY teeth extracted and no mention of any potential issues.
    I have to assume that Oratene along with more of a focus on dental care, is the reason.

    My vet recommended this additive to my chorkie's water when she was a puppy and she is now 8. I have moved and she has seen several vets and they have been impressed with the condition of her teeth!

    Sweet Breath at Last

    We have a boxer and a rottweiler who aren't particularly fond of toothbrushing and this product is just what we needed. Just add to their water and voila better breath and oral hygiene without any effort. They readily drink the water as there is no odor or taste. So glad we found this product.

    Great product

    This was recommended by my vet for my cats' teeth. It makes it much easier to keep their teeth clean. While their teeth should still be brushed, this makes the plaque easier to remove.

    Riley is now too old to get his teeth cleaned by the vet. This helps keep his teeth clean and his breath fresh. I would especially recommend it for little dogs who have a tendency to have their teeth decay.

    Excellent Teeth Protection
    June 16, 2015
    My German Shepherd's teeth were cleaned at least 3 years ago. Since then I have been using Oratene Drinking Water Additive to his water and his teeth have remained clean and his breath fresh. He drinks lots of water too, as we live in FL, so I go through a lot of the Oratene. At 9 1/2 yrs old, I do not want to have him undergo anesthesia again for another teeth cleaning, so I will stay with the Oratene. His vet is happy with the condition of his teeth.

    Can cause digestive upset
    June 15, 2015
    Of my six cats, four can use the oratene products without side affects. One gets bad diarrhea, and the other, loose stools. These products contain sorbitol, which Can cause digestive upset in humans, diarrhea being one. So cats, being mammals can experience similar problems.
    When first starting the product, watch for reactions, especially diarrhea. I had to eliminate it from community drinking water and administer the gels instead, to the cats that can tolerate it. I use q-tips to place the gel between the lip and gum line.

    Love the Oratene
    June 12, 2015
    My vet recommended the Oratene when my Yorkie was found to have inherited lousy teeth. His breath was always awful. Once started on Oratene he has
    improved ALOT. I just add it to the community water
    dish & I'm finished. A problem solved easily.

    use caution with older cats (or weak kidneys)
    June 5, 2015
    Of my 2 cats and 2 dogs, only one will let me brush his teeth, so I bought this, hoping that it will help keep their teeth clean. It has no odor or taste, and all of them drank the water as usual. However, my 18 year old cat, who is usually a chow hound, started leaving about half of her food in the bowl. I stopped using the oratene, and her appetite returned. But I can't say for certain that the Oratene caused the problem; she is 18 years old and fragile, so it could have been coincidence (she is diabetic in remission and has weak kidneys). So I would say use caution for older cats or cats with other health issues.

    Breath smells better
    June 5, 2015
    Cats don;t notice it is in the water, they drink the same amount as without the additive. Breath however on all animals is noticeable better
