    Thanks girls. He's very special to me as he has accepted so many changes in his life and so many dogs coming to board, foster and in Charlie's case, stay and take over his bed and toys as well

    Cathy T, I felt such an idiot when James removed the 'bad black tooth ' I think it was a tiny bit of some very dried out black mint that I have growing in my herb garden. It was really hard and was stuck to his tooth and into his gum making his gum all sore - that's why I thought it was a bad tooth - I just couldn't understand how it had gone black so quickly I swear I shouldn't be let out on my own sometimes LOL

    Cathy M, he got a 'dentastix' which is a dental chew for being so brave. Charlie got one too - for being brave when he had his injections

    Terri, Maxx says thank you and is the gold star edible?

    Joanne, yep he'll do ANYTHING without complaining. It's quite funny that he never growled until we taught him to by making growly noises when we played with him. I trust him implicitly

    Last but not least, Linda Yeah he is a champ, bless him. As I said he's just so accepting of everything and everybody. If he was a horse he'd be classed as bombproof Mind you, he is scared of briefcases for some strange reason He and Charlie are VERY lucky to have Uncle James - especially as he didn't even charge me for the impromptu dental treatment My boys are no luckier than Dudley and Darby and all the other furbabies though

    Maxx sends you all a big licky kiss and says that Auntie Helen (one of the other Vets) says he now has a 'Colgate smile'

    Glad Maxx didn't need his tooth extracted . Bet he's delighted to have the offending particle removed though, and a nice Colgate smile to boot

    What do you use to clean their teeth Donna? My two girlies have smelly breath and Minnie's teeth in particular, are a bit discoloured, although she had them cleaned when she went in for her spay.

    {{{{{Maxx and Charlie}}}}} you are both VERY brave boys and a credit to your Mommy

    Hi Claire,

    Believe it or not but all I use is a soft dry flannel every other day and they also get a dentastix for small dogs, twice a week.

    I do give them the occasional pizzle stick or white rawhide chew but only maybe once or twice a month if that.

    Maxx also has Burns dried food and I think that the texture of the food helps keep his teeth clean.

    You could try charcoal biscuits (black ones) from the pet shop for the girl's breath. They will help clean their teeth and also, if the smell is coming from their stomach's it will help to neutralise it

    I also saw some breath neutralisers for dogs last week but I don't know if they work or not
