aren't free dental cleanings offered for service animals in the fall?
Perhaps you could wait to schedule an appointment rather than dropping
so much money right now.
Also, there is a homeopathic remedy that can be put into drinking
water that destroys plaque and tartar. It is called Fragaria Vesca.
It can be purchased from:
Select dental care in the drop down to find the remedy.
Last I checked the site, this remedy was under $30.
Here's what the site says about Fragaria Vesca .
Fragaria Vesca is used for softening and removing tartar and dental
plaque that can cause gingivitis and decay. Apply a few drops Fragaria
Vesca around gums prior to flossing. Fragaria Vesca in 3OC potency for
severe or chronic problems.
Using Fragaria while flossing provides protection against plaque build
up. Plaque build up can lead to gingivitis.
Gingivitis left untreated can progress into periodontitis, a more
severe gum disease that can compromise integrity of tooth sockets.
Customers are telling us that their teeth feel much cleaner with
Fragaria Vesca. Fragaria Vesca may be helpful to prevent formation of
calculi. Safe and natural-Fragaria Vesca is a homeopathic remedy from
woodland strawberry. Use Fragaria Vesca with proper brushing and
flossing to aid in preventing plaque build up. Fragaria Vesca provides
pain relief around tender gum pockets.
Plaque creates unfavorable bacterial acids that harm gums. Plaque
hardens into tartar/calculus within 72 hours. Apply a dropper of
Fragaria Vesca onto gums directly after eating to help with
sensitivity, and painful gums.
Fragaria Vesca is used for problems of deep pockets, gingivitis, and
sensitive teeth. Easy to use dropper to apply around the gum line. Can
use with your regular toothpaste. Use Fragaria Vesca after each meal
or as needed for pain or problem teeth. Use 1 dropper full as needed,
no shaking or diluting needed.
In addition to Fragaria Vesca's use for dental concerns, the remedy is
listed in materia medica for other problems such as symptoms of
biliousness, chilblains, convulsions, erysipelas, gonorrhea, tapeworm
and urticaria.
1 fluid oz in an food grade corn alcohol base.
For pets, use our pellets.
