"I am a holistic veterinarian and am always in
search of natural products for my patients. PetzLife
dental products have been a great addition. I feel like I
have a new "tool" against tartar. In my 17 years in
practice I have often seen older pets undergo anesthesia
for dental cleanings or growth removals, and they were never
the same afterwards. Some even developed seizures.
This Oral Care has worked on my patients that
have had severe tartar and gingivitis. Before
discovering these products we had to perform dental
cleanings under anesthesia or resort to keeping the animal
on antibiotics (As a holistic vet I don't use antibiotics
Now we can cure the problem while avoiding the
anesthesia and the drugs !"

I, too, have had some horrendous experiences with
anesthesia. As a holistic consultant and author ("Natural
Cat Care" and "Natural Dog Care"), I avoid it whenever
possible. When I must, I ask for Isofluorane, as this
anesthesia I feel is the safest. I also prefer no preop
sedatives (such as Ket/Valium or Propofal [sic?]) because of
my first nightmare. Thirty minutes after the vet pulled
my cat's "trach tube" (the tube inserted in your pet's
throat), my beautiful, love-of-my-life Siamese cat went into
cardiac arrest and died. How heartbreaking it was to go
home from a dental with an empty cat carrier. I sobbed for
days, but she had clearly been over-anesthetized. They used
a new drug pre-op (Propofal instead of Ket/Valium, which is
more common), then gave her a pain patch, and pain meds.
This is just too many drugs. How many times must our
hearts be broken before they learn these bitter lessons?
I know they are trying to provide pain control, and vets are
doing their best to accomplish this. However, all to often,
the result is fatal.
Last year, a client of mine purchased two beautiful,
healthy, robust, male kittens. She took them both in for
neutering but only went home with one. This little guy
lost his brother because he had been given an overdose of
The next loss was following a spay and teeth cleaning...
two procedures I have learned the hard way should not be
done together. Bacteria from teeth cleaning are "stirred
up," but who wants to put them under twice?
I just wanted to thank you for making such a great product
with the dental gel! We use your products regularly in our
rescue organization as we see a lot of older dogs that have
not had the best food or oral care in their lives, and are
badly in need of teeth cleaning. Most are too old or sick to
undergo anesthesia, and when we have an animal that can
undergo the treatment the cost is usually beyond what we can
afford. Your dental gel has changed that entirely!
We recently took in a 10 year old beagle named Major who
needed his teeth cleaned, and he just wasn't getting adopted
with his bad breath. After just two weeks on your dental gel
his teeth were white and his breath fresh - a huge
difference! Major has found a home with a wonderful couple
and they will continue to purchase this product.
I ordered your products on Aug. 28th., they arrived on the
30th (very fast shipping!) and I began using them on the
31st. Today is Sept. 5th. I am amazed at the
difference that this is making. I have 6 dogs and we are
spraying in the am about an hour after breakfast and using
the Gel at night about an hour after last turn out treats.
Several of my dogs have pretty good teeth but the brown
staining that is on one girls teeth is disappearing. The dog
with the worst teeth had wonderful breath almost immediately
and now I'm just using my finger nails and popping off this
horrid nasty plaque in huge chunks. I don't have strong
nails either, this stuff has never come off like this.
Before I was giving my dogs knuckle bones and brushing with
CET every other day and the results were not that good. I
am now using your products exclusively. 5 of my dogs are
retired racing greyhounds and they are well known for
usually having horrible teeth (all greyhounds, not just
mine!!) I have recommended your products to many of my
friends. I will be using your products for a long time!
I wish I could have taken pics of their teeth, but I can't
hold their mouths open and take a pic at the same time.
