Had to bring Millie to the vets yesterday for her 2nd dental in less than a year and was horrified that she had to have some teeth extracted
On the vets recommendation, we are switching her food from Royal Canin to Science plan veterinary range in the hope that this change will help prevent such a fast tartar build up again.
The vet seems to think that Millie is unfortunate and just simply more prone to bad teeth and gums than other dogs, and is hoping that a higher quality food should make a difference. They didnt appear to think that brushing her teeth would make much of an impact - Millie has never let me near her with a toothbrush, but now Im thinking Im going to have to get tough and persist with her..
I had cut down on the amount of dental chewies as she needed to loose some weight - so I feel like Im caught in a vicious circle... (on the upside she has lost 2 kilos, so I was very happy with that!)
Can anybody recommend a good enzyme toothpaste/gel that I could try? I will do anything for her not to have any more problems with her teeth..
