Rated 5 out of 5 by Rick5 PLAQUE ZAPPER WORKS!!
I have used this product for 9 or 10 months and my dogs' teeth and gums are clear of plaque build-up.
Our vet always compliments us on the excellent condition of our dogs' teeth and stresses how important it is to provide pets with good dental care. Ark Naturals Plaque Zapper dissolves quickly in water and our dogs do not appear to detect any change in the taste of their water. When mixing the product in their water bowl it will create a little foam which the dogs don't seem to notice. I highly recommend Ark Naturals Plaque Zapper - it is easy to use and is very effective in preventing plaque and works to keep teeth and gums healthy. Great Product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Catmom29 Stopped the barfing
Maybe this helps dental problems in cats, I'm not sure, as I use it for a different purpose. I started putting it my kitty's wet food when we found his pancreas was inflamed. He had been barfing nearly every day, but he hasn't thrown up his food at all since we started giving this to him almost two months ago. This product is just digestive enzymes, after all, and impaired pancreatic function interferes with the cat's own enzyme production. It seems to help a lot with hairballs, too. We give our cat one whole packet a day divided between his 3 wet food feedings. It is much easier to control the dosage in food rather than water, since cats don't drink much anyway. We took our cat off of dry food completely, too, which also helped his tummy and encourages him to eat more wet food with the enzymes.
I ordered a different brand of digestive enzymes for pets to try, because my one complaint about this product is the annoying little packets! But the Plaque Zapper dissolves completely in water, while the other product clumps and doesn't mix well. This is the winner.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Penrod48 No thank you!
Neither dogs nor cats would drink the water it was in, even after the fizz was gone. Had hoped it would help as I have an older dog who is not able to be anesthetized to have his teeth cleaned.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 3Amigos Have seen no difference
I have tried a number of these product with only so-so results. This one is about the same. What I liked was that it fizzes and specifies for gum discomfort and that's helpful. What is annoying is the directions in that it says good for small and med water bowls. Really not specific enough as my small may be someone else's medium.
Therefore, I'm never sure if i have enough in their water to make a difference. it would be much more informative to tell me how many packets, drops, pumps or capfuls per cups of water.
My dogs didn't seem at all put off by the product in their water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sweetieandfriends Weird seller -- but bottom line is that it works!
Weirdest customer service call I ever had. Not understanding the printed instructions on the bag, I called the phone #.
Me: Instructions just say "Empty packet in bowl of fresh water. Therapeutic: 2x daily for 4-6 weeks. Maintenance: Use 1x daily - 3x per week."
I don't understand how to make sure that each of my 4 cats drinks 2 doses each day during the 'therapeutic period'.
Vendor: Fill the water bowl & add packet, then after 4-6 hrs, the enzymes stop working, so you empty the bowl & use fresh water & another packet.
Me: On the package it says it lasts 6-8 hrs.
Vendor: I haven't read the package in years.
Me: But what if a cat drinks a lot more than 2x? The accidental overdose directions say -------
Vendor: They can't overdose on it. It doesn't matter how many times they drink. It's perfectly safe. I use it myself.
Me: The package says it's for pet use only.
Vendor: Everything we make is food-grade.
Despite the inconsistency btwn the pkg & the vendor, I figured I'd try it. I've wasted a lot of $$ on various flavors of toothpastes & gels, & toothbrushes, & the cats won't have any of it. So what's to lose?
Result: They still drink the water. They really don't seem to notice any difference. And finally their breath is better & I hope that means they have less plaque.
Note: Have scissors handy. The notch on the little packets isn't big, & if you don't rip it on an angle, the packet is still closed once you rip off the whole strip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carol Fresh breath and clean teeth!
We have been giving our cats and dogs this product for years as it helps to keep their breath fresh and their teeth clean. They have no problem with it in their drinking water and we feel safe giving it to them as it contains all good ingredients. We love shopping with Chewy as their prices are great and we receive our orders quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Flora55 This stuff really works!
I was skeptical about this product since it seemed too good to be true, but after using it regularly I have really noticed a difference in my cats' teeth and breath. I have one cat who absolutely will NOT tolerate anything being done to her teeth, so manual brushing is out of the question, but she can't go under general anesthesia for a cleaning at the vet because she is older and has a heart murmur. Now that she is getting Plaque Zapper in her water, her teeth look better and her breath is much improved. I'm a believer!
