For many many months now, I have been tackling the problem that is Lucy's teeth. I did not want to anesthetize her for a dental (and pay lots of money) until I had exhausted other options. I started off being lazy and always forgetting to brush and whatnot, so I got strict... Lucy's teeth before: (No picture of molars, those were on my other phone that I lost ) Teeth tonight: We've been brushing with the Petzlife gel every day, and spraying with Petzlife. Plus a weekly dental chew, which is probably not enough to really do much but she does not chew on things otherwise... and they are too expensive to give more often lol. I did a tiny bit of hand scaling on the canines, but there is a reason why they anesthetize them for this! She turns into a thrashing monster for it. Could she still benefit from a for real dental prophy? Absolutely. But for a 6.5 year old toy dog, she's not looking too bad right now and I think she's okay to go without it. I'm just pleased that they look pretty again and her breath isn't yucky.
