How to get tartar off

2240 Views 13 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  poodleholic
We just adopted a dog and she has tartar build up already. She is young....and I have no idea what her diet was with previous owners. If I give her the dental chews or bones, will that get it off? It isn't really on her back teeth...more on the canines. What else would work short of a vet cleaning?

If not vet teeth cleaning, you could try doggie tooth brush and toothpaste. They have special toothpaste for tarter. She might not like her teeth brused though so it may take a while for her to get used to it. I think they sell some type of stuff you can add to their water, but i've never tried that. Bones, bully sticks, chew toys also help clean their teeth.
