I had been using another brand of wipes that was not available and ordered these. The wipes work well, but one of my dogs had gum irritation after the first use. The other dog is fine. I did not even think of testing these out on a smaller area of his gums, but wish I had. No idea why this occurred, the dog is a 12 year old lab/pit mix and does have some medication tolerance issues such as not being able to take rimadyl.
Used 1 container of these, my 30# dog was OK with them BUT I constantly felt like he was going to swallow one! They are too small in my opinion, I measure at about 2-1/4" diameter. I think more like 3" would feel safer to me.
The actual wipes were great BUT the wintergreen smell was such a turnoff for my dog that she avoided me for hours, the next day she continued to be wary if I was near the wipes. So we have used exactly one. No fragrance would be a winner, this is not.
I was looking for something with no mint. I was pretty sure my cats wouldn’t like mint, and sure enough one of them ran away when I tried to use this. All the ingredients are not listed and Chewy gave incorrect answer as to whether or not mint was in this. Please simply list ALL the ingredients! Also, my jar says “Medicated Dental Wipes” instead of just “Dental Wipes” as pictured, and also says “available through licensed veterinarians only”. Makes me wary of using this product.
I was looking for an unflavored/sented teeth cleaning option. Unfortunately these are minty and my girl wasn’t a fan. Wish they had a flavor/sent that was more appealing to cats or none at all.
I like these wipes for my little 11 year old pomeranian Teddy. He doesn't like tooth brushes and these wipes make it much easier to clean is little teeth. Lite scent and small container
We love this product.It really works. We have used Ora-Clens for a couple of years and it's very easy to use and our dogs like it also.
These are very hard to use. I think they should be thicker and bigger. Very hard to maneuver around my dog’s teeth (I have a stubborn boxer). I don’t know how well they actually work because I don’t like to use them. They have a very nice scent though.
I really wasn’t sure if these were worth the price, since I use gauze pads and doggies toothpaste already. However, the convenience is certainly a plus. The smell and “taste” for my dog is palatable. Taking care of a small dog’s teeth is an ongoing chore!
These wipes are one of my favorite dog dental hygiene products. They are the only chlorhexidine product that does not also contain zinc. I am concerned about overdosing dogs with zinc. Because I use a lot of dental products on my dogs, I am careful to not give them too much zinc. The second reason I love this product is because it contains hexametaphosphate which coats the teeth and acts to inhibit plaque. This chemical is used in many human dental products. Ora-Clens wipes is the only thing I can find for dogs that has hexametaphosphate. To use these, grab several wipes and rub the outer surface of the teeth. Then, let your dog bite down on the bunch with the very back teeth to bathe these hard to reach areas. These wipes are a great addition to brushing. Additionally I love Proden PlaqueOff kelp supplement. I am also having great success with the addition of various chews. My favorite is dried duck feet because they are all natural and chisel off all the plaque on the back teeth. I have recently discovered Purina Denta Life spongy chews. I like the concept of them and although I hate to feed my dogs starch/sugar/preservative dental chews as I think excess carbs foster the wrong bacteria in the mouth and also the gut, I am making an exception and using Denta Life because I do think they are working and I like the idea of alternating the spongy vs. hard chews.
