Great, But Pay NO Attention to the Directions
In addition to brushing and adding an oral hygiene solution to their water, my vet recommended weekly applications of OraVet. My dogs came home with samples after a dental. I tried applying OraVet according to the directions, and my effort was a total failure.
I did some research online, and discovered some useful application tips. First, OraVet is really more of a waxy substance than it is a gel. Heating it will soften it, making it easier to apply and to stick to the teeth.
I drop one of the trays in HOT water for about 10 minutes. Then I peel off the cover. By this time I've already thrown away all the applicators. They're utterly useless.
Position you dog as you would to brush his teeth. With a papertowl dry off an area of his teeth. It's helpful to start out with smaller areas until you get the knack of doing it. Once the teeth have been dried, use your index finger to pick up an amount and spread it over the dried area. Repeat this process until you've covered all the teeth.
I can get enough from one tray to do the teeth of 2 Italian Greyhounds.
