Questions & Answers

5 Customer Questions

How does the apply? It isn’t a spray.
Answer by ChewyMar 21, 2021
Open the bottle and pour in the accompanying vial of Vitamin C. Replace applicator tip. After globule drops to the bottom of the bottle, shake until dissolved. Rub or squeeze a small amount (a pea size droplet for cats) on each side above your pet’s back upper teeth and gums. A natural cleansing action will distribute product to remote areas.

How long does product stay active if kept refrigerated.
Answer by ChewySep 12, 2021
Usually between 12 and 18 months. It is important to remember that the color of the product indicates if the product is still efficacious. The product starts blue and then will change to a wide range of the color green. Any shade of green shows that the product is still working. If it changes to a yellowish or brownish color, the product is no longer effective.

So far great

I have just started using this on my 12 year old cat who is very plaque up on his back teeth. I am trying this to break down the plaque. I figure it will take several weeks to months and the cat doesn't mind it in his mouth

We like it!

My vet recommended this, along with brushing my cat's teeth, after my cat's recent dental. My cat doesn't mind it too much, though he is on daily medication so he is already used to having his mouth touched. It's definitely easier than brushing his teeth! I wish the consistency was a little bit thicker as that would make it a little easier to use, but it's going to become part of our routine regardless!

Maxguard dental

This was not what I expected. It was runny and hard to apply to my dogs teeth. I tried to use my finger and a finger brush, but it ran all over the place. I am not going to order any more.

Healthy Gums

Maxiguard was recommended to me by a veterinary, dental specialist. The vitamin C is acidic and helps discourage plaque buildup and is also absorbed transdermal by the gums to help mitigate excessive inflammation. The Zn kills bacteria and breaks up the biofilm layer. It has no taste per se but the Zn clings to the oral tissue and creates a weird, temporary, dry sensation. My dogs got used to that. I brush with dog toothpaste and then use my index finger to rub this gel along the gum line both sides. Put a small amount on a saucer and dip finger in repeatedly for ease of applying.

Not what I thought

I thought this would be a gel that would stay on my finger long enough for me to put my finger in my dog's mouth and put it on his back teeth, but in spite of following the instructions and shaking the bottle, it comes out as a liquid and runs down my hand.

Flavor is great!

I am absolutely certain that all four of my cats love the flavor of this. I am uncertain if it is doing anything for their oral health, that is yet to be seen. Just thought I would review that the flavor is great (to the cat)

A godsend for oral health

My cat suffers from so-called “rat ulcers” about every six months. The vets have no idea what causes it and I usually have to take him in for steroid shots and antibiotics if it’s bad enough. Steroid shots aren’t great for cats to get regularly and as my cat already suffers from a weight issue I wanted to find an alternative. His last ulcer has been lingering for a couple of months now, even after a steroid shot. I tried lysine which only seemed to make it worse. The first vet we ever saw suggested this product so I decided it give it another shot. His ulcer has cleared up in a matter of days! While my cat isn’t really a fan of me administering this product, he likes it more than going to the vet and it’s certainly much cheaper. I’m super impressed considering this ulcer has been hanging on for so long!

I want to like it but my dog hates it

I’ve heard good things about this product, but my dog has such an aversion to it that it’s hard to use it on a regular basis. Like he lays down and turns his head away from me when he sees me pull out the bottle. My dog does much better with enzymatic toothpaste
