In my experience, nothing worked, other than daily brushing using a toothpaste with enzymes to eliminate tarter. Samantha had her teeth professionally cleaned at age 3, which was so hard on her, with the anesthetic etc, I vowed to do what ever it took to eliminate the need for another professional cleaning. She is now 7 1/2, all her teeth are white and clean. Vet checks her out and says no intervention required.

Laco, I went through the same experience with my dog. He had his teeth cleaned at age 4. While it was good to get rid of all the gunk on his teeth, I vowed to never put him through it again (unless he needs an extraction for some reason). So it motivated me to brush daily. I hope to keep my younger dog's teeth in such good condition that he'll never need a professional cleaning.

No, all 3 of my dogs are totally fine with the dental spray. I just lift up their gums and spray, and they just stand there. The first couple times they were less than impressed, but they quickly got used to it.
