I add a few drops to my cats food and they don't seem to mind. No stress involved. The price is reasonable and I use it as a preventative treatment so hopefully my cats will benefit from it down the road.
The only reason I’m giving this 4 stars is because I’m just not sure if it’s actually helped my kitty’s teeth or gums per se. However, it has markedly improved her breath which gives me the impression that it is doing something good. To the people disturbed by the alcohol content, I hear ya. I have been using homeopathic remedies on myself and my cats for decades. Heat up a small amount of water to very hot but not boiling and administer the drops to that. Wait til the alcohol has evaporated, 10 to 20 seconds, then add it to the food. I find this dispels the more vomitous attributes of the alcohol and the medicine is still effective. I have to feed my cats wet food morning and night, so it’s easy enough for me to do.
I got this from a local pet shop and went through 3 bottles, and my cat's recent check-up showed severe dental decay in 3 teeth. :( Earlier in the year I was told he had the beginnings of gingivitis, but since he also has a heart condition we had to wait until the cardiologist cleared him for a dental procedure. During that time I was praying this would help, as I have had very good luck with other HomeoPet products. I'm super bummed this didn't help, and that a few of his teeth got worse. I added it to a little bit of wet food and made sure he licked the bowl clean each time, but maybe it would have been more effective applying it right to his gums. I don't know, the directions say you can add it to food too, so... I think his breath did improve some, which is why I gave it two stars.
My cats still drank the water after I added these drops. It will take longer to see if it is having an effect on their breath.
I put it in the water and both cats drink the water with no issues. I may put it in the food, though. I use a pet fountain so am not sure how much to use. I hope it's helping!
I have a bunch of HomeoPet's supplement drops. My FIV+ cat has dental issues, as they are wont to do, so until his full mouth extraction I decided to add these to his food. He does not notice them in his breakfast, hence the 4-stars. Do they work? I don't know. But I have used some of their other supplements that did help my cat at times, so I decided to give it a shot.
I have a cat with gingivitis. He gets to where it’s too painful for him to eat. When he has a flare up he has to go to the vet for antibiotic and steroid injections. I have been giving him this supplement daily and I feel like it’s helping him. Only time will tell but it’s been longer than usual since he’s had to go to the doctor.
We have had success with homeopathic remedies in the past, but this did not seem to help our kitties. Unfortunately, it was prepared with alcohol which Chewy does not list in the ingredients section. Our cats did not take well to it being applied directly in their mouths, so we were including it with food twice a day after letting the alcohol evaporate for 20 minutes. This may have impacted its effectiveness, but it was the best we could do. After dosing all three cats for about 2.5 weeks, the bottle is almost gone, and I will not be buying another one. At first I thought the smell of their breath was improving, but it didn't last. After inspecting their mouths, the tartar and gum irritation looks the same.
I originally had a similar product in my cart just a different brand but after reading reviews, I decided to go with this brand & I’m extremely happy I did. I got it mainly for my cats awful breath. Received it today & already got it in his water, which he didn’t mind. The best part, the product has already worked & his breath barely has a smell! 10/10
I have been using this product for 2 weeks and still no improvement in my cat’s mild gingivitis.
