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.

is it safe for six month old cat
Answer by ChewyMar 30, 2022
This is safe for cats and dogs of any age.

How many times a day should we apply it?
Answer by ChewyJul 19, 2022
The manufacturer recommends to use daily for best results. Rub or squeeze a small amount (a pea size droplet for cats) on each side above your pet’s back upper teeth and gums.

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.

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

Sparkling Teeth

This solution really works. Our dog gets terrible tartar buildup, but it can be controlled by using this solution. It is possible to have sparkling teeth. We use our fingers to rub this on but you can also use a toothbrush if your dog will tolerate it. If your dog doesn’t like the spray, this also comes in a wipe.

Not a gel!!

This product should not be marketed as a gel. It is very runny and difficult to apply. The instructions say to apply a "pea-sized" drop using your finger or finger brush. It's impossible to measure a "pea-sized" drop given the liquid consistency. It runs off your finger or brush and you end up wasting more than you get in your dog's mouth. Disappointed and dissatisfied and will not purchase again.

Works wonders

We have always had Mia’s teeth cleaned because of the tartar buildup which has been hard to keep up with. Once a year hardly seemed like enough. Being a Maltese, they have very small mouths and a very narrow arch. She has had multiple tooth extractions due to gingivitis from the buildup. Since the Vet recommended this product, we use it every night before bed and her breath is so much better, and the build up is minimal. It does promote better oral health.

Product is effective

This product seems to work and I am happy that I can wait a bit longer for actually brushing my dogs teeth.
