How do you remove tarter from your dog's teeth?

Tartar is generally removed by a vet during teeth cleaning. Many vets now use an ultrasonic device to do this.

Once tartar is there, this is pretty much the only way to remove it.

Treats, toothbrushing, and food will not remove tartar once it has formed.

However, providing proper dental care BEFORE can help prevent the development of it.

Reply:They have several kinds of treats for dogs that remove tarter from their teeth and also you can brush your dog's teeth with a toothbrush....easier said than done, since he will try to eat the toothbrush, but my little fella loves the dental treats! Good luck fellow dog lover!
Reply:Brush them. That's what I do for my bulldog.

Reply:They make special dog biscuits designed to clean a dog's teeth and get rid of his/hers bad breath.
Reply:Id try getting a dentabone from the pet shop for him/her to chew on.
Reply:I think there are some types of dog biscuits you can buy which help remove the tarter.
Reply:buy something called pedigree denta-stix, they are brilliant, they are crossprism shaped and when the dog chews it the the tartar is brushed off, not recommended for bigdogs though as they could just munch it.

Or you could try doggy toothbrushed however it can be messy and getting you dog to obey isnt the easiest of tasks . Also to freshen breath i believe you can buy treats with a menthol unlining flavour and smell to help freshen doggy's breath :)
Reply:Better let a Vet do it - if it is necessary. InciDENTALly, it's tartar.
Reply:Tartar is removed by your vet. They will give the dog a dental cleaning.
Reply:There's the vet, of course, to get things clean -- just like your own dentist. And for maintenance, there are special brush things and so on. But my dog has the most beautiful teeth, and all I do is get sliced beef marrow bones (shank), about 1 inch thick from the butcher or grocery store, and give him those. I roast them in a 300 degree oven for an hour or so (kills germs, removes fat), and give one to my dog before I go to bed -- a new one once or twice a week. He goes at it in the dark, and I use earplugs! The marrow inside makes him really go for gnawing, and the sharp-cornered shape of the circles of bone clean his teeth perfectly. Plus, eating the bone marrow is a fabulous thing for his coat and skin, and he LOVES it.

Frankly, brushing a dog's teeth daily is the sort of thing I could imagine one of the girls doing on "Sex and the City" and losing her boyfriend over. Great idea I suppose, but how many people will really follow through with it? I'm sure I'll get mucho "Thumbs Down" for this answer, but all I can tell you is that it really works for me and the evidence is right there in the dog's mouth -- all teeth white as can be right to the gumline and perfectly clean breath all the time.
Reply:Well I swear by "Pet Kiss". My groomer recommended for my little Bichon. It's an all natural liquid that you mix in their water. I bought it from my groomer but found it cheaper on line. It's main ingredient is beet juice. I buy mine from this site: DRS FOSTER %26amp; SMITH . com. Oh it also works great for their breath too. Good luck.
Reply:I bought a Purina Busy Bone Ultimate for my dog last week and it took a ton of tartar off her teeth. My dog won't let me brush her teeth and I refuse to pay my vet some huge sum for the removal of it.

The bone cost me $5.70 at the grocery store and it really did a great job cleaning her teeth. One tooth was entirely covered and now is 85% clean. My dog is a Husky/Shepard mix and is 10 years old. There are smaller bones for smaller dogs.
