How to get tartar off

2247 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?

I give my dog one raw beef shortrib a week and it keeps his teeth sparkly clean. I cut the meat off since it was a little too rich for him since he's not used to eating raw. I started doing this when the vet suggested I started brushing his teeth. The bone is fun for my dog, way more fun than brushing would be I'm sure :)
