Has anyone tried Plaque Attack for their dogs yet? I wondered if it really works or if it's a waste of money.

I've never used it before. I want to try it out. Bones are what give dogs fresh breath and good teeth. Dogs chew on bones, which scrape off plaque, tartar, and bacteria.

If this is the product I'm thinking of, it contains alcohol. That's really a big no-no for dogs in any form, topical but especially oral.

I would avoid it.

I'd stick to manual tooth brushing (no human toothpaste, it's toxic) with a doggie toothbrush and doggie toothpaste (or none is ok, too.) You can also use your finger wrapped in a damp terrycloth towel and use a similar motion to how you brush your own teeth, circular and avoiding pushing up plaque under the gumline. It's not really possible to get ALL the teeth when brushing dog's teeth. I have heard many times that it's more important to get the outer teeth and that this is sufficient to reduce health problems and bad breath from plaque. So don't worry about having to reach in there like he's got a flip top head. :-)

I've never tried plaque attack, but if it does contain alcohol a great alternative is PETfection Breath Freshener Spray. It is 100% Organic and Non-Toxic and is great at combating bacteria in the mouth and reducing plaque build up. You can use it in addition to regular brushing, bones, greenies, etc. You can check it out at

Yes.. I have been using Plaque Attack for the past 2 weeks. I have 2 dogs.. Akita Mix and Sky Terrier.. They are both 10 yrs old. It has worked in just 2 weeks for the Akita. bad breath & tartar and stain is GONE. I am very pleasantly surprised. I should of taken before & after pics!! My Skye Terrier is taking longer because she already had gum disease and had been treated at the vet for that 2 yrs ago. But her bad breath is GONE!! The tartar is taking longer to come off but I have seen alot of improvement in her bleeding gums!! Yes I will buy the Plaque Attack again when my supply runs out!!

Plaque Attack is a SCAM! They have you click through a dozen screens just to try and place an order, only to find by mistake that you have
purchased $59 worth of stuff in your cart. I tried to back button it but instead of canceling the order, it placed it and the one for only
the one bottle.

BTW, that one bottle for $19.95 cost me $29. STUPID YES, but the site wore me out. I am returning the $59 order now, that I thought I had cancelled...but will only get 75% of my money, as they won't refund me the $15.00...UGH!

Their website surely makes you think Nigerian or Pakistan scam, that I agree with 100%.

I did order a bottle of plaque attack and will try it on our two dogs, I will report back the results we have.

The paque attack people obviously make their money like most "as seen on TV" junk salesman with high shipping and handling, and separate shipping and handling on each thing added to the order.
And Wyatt was 100% accurate when he said they bombard you with 50 pages of BUY THIS TOO, all with "pay separate shipping and handling" add ons that makes a small purchase into a huge bill, but that doesn't mean paque attack doesnt work...just because plaque attack is probably not an American company, and is scamming people with carnival come ons and high shipping and handling add-ons...I will try it and let you all know how it works, likely this will be a waste of money and I am sure paque attack will not be around in a year from now, but meanwhile we will give it a fair trial.

I just purchased it this evening. I am angered that the original shipping and handling stated $6.95, when I checked out with my credit card and it charged me 13.95 on top of the 19.95. I do not like the fact that it hassles you with several other product and additional bottle offers. I will find another solution once I have tried this. I will let you guys all know when it gets here. But I did complained and told them to refund my 6.95. I will wait and see what they say after the holiday...HAPPY FOURTH!

Yes, the website is a little tricky, but if you are methodical about going top to bottom and unchecking all the defaults, you will end up with a single bottle for $26.90. ( maybe the person from PlaqueAttack above helped a little? )

We have a small 10 year old Papillon and whew... the breath could knock you over. The vet has cleaned his teeth multiple times, but it comes back.

Buyer beware - Plaque Attack sells your info. I've received 3 unsolicited calls from companies in the last 2 weeks trying to sell me stuff. When I questioned the callers they said they received my info from a recent purchase I made with my credit card. The only purchase I've recently made online was to Plaque Attack. One caller actually mentioned Plaque Attack. I'm on the 'no call' list so, I was very frustrated as there wasn't any 'opt out' option as I went through the MANY pages just to place my order. I do not recall this in their privacy info either.
Also, you will really notice an alcohol smell when you this product.

I thought it was going to be a waste but I had to do something for my little mixed breed who had a horrible time with her last teeth cleaning - she almost died because her heart has a really bad murmur. But, I've been using it for about a month - trying to be consistent with it - and the right side of her mouth is fabulous, while the left side is still a little "crusty." But, it works and I'm glad it's all natural. She doesn't love it, but it works and her breath is so much better. She is almost 12 and small and diabetic. So I'm just being super careful with her. It's worth the money!!!

Plaque Attack is a wonderful product. I was skeptic but with money-back guarantee I ordered one bottle a year ago and have been ordering ever since. My 10-year-old Cocker has been suffering with gum bleeding since I had his teeth cleaned at five years old (will never do that again). Anyway, lived on medication every six months (expensive!). Used Plaque Attack for one year; his gums looked good to me. But the real clincher was November healthy check vet visit. Dr. could not believe how good his gums looked!! In the beginning I had to use it morning and night. But after several weeks, I only use it at night now before he goes bed without drinking water. It works all night. He is one cranky senior citizen but never balks when I spray this (quick 3 sprays) on his gums.

I just saw the infomercial on did some checking. It is the same as Petzlife, and Petzlife is MUCH cheaper (and easier) to buy on Amazon!
HOWEVER...the ingredients in both (being the same) do contain grain alcohol!
I don't see how this is good for animals...
I agree that this is easier...and probably better than not brushing at all, but if you watch some "how to" videos on brushing dogs just might find some good tips and tricks on brushing your dogs teeth, instead...which is ultimately better.

I haven't used it bit I did find a link to a news station who conducted a test on Plaque Attack using a real dog and with advice from a local vet.
This sealed the deal for me. Plaque Attack is a holistic product which means it's not regulated. In addition, it does not contain the active enzyme needed to remove plaque and tartar from your dogs teeth. Best solution is to get your dogs teeth professionally cleaned followed by regular upkeep at home. One product to try is Petkin liquid oral care which you add to your pets water or PetzLife oral care gel.
Hope this helps! Best to stay away from any "as seen on TV products"

Quote: I haven't used it bit I did find a link to a news station who conducted a test on Plaque Attack using a real dog and with advice from a local vet.

After watching this clip, they did NOT test the product. They took a dog to a vet and asked the vet about the product, who discredited it. The product was NOT tested, as stated by the newscasters, and they touted it as a dud.

I don't want to put my pets under anesthesia just to have their teeth cleaned, since I lost a beautiful Persian cat to anesthesia. The vet 'apologized' but it didn't bring Pixie back.

So...I'm going to try this product. Interestingly enough, it gets fairly good reviews from the people that are actually using it! My mom ordered it to try on her Yorkie, so we'll see. My Chihuahua is impossible to brush teeth on, so I'm looking for an alternative.

Yes, it was a pain and very annoying to have to click through all the upgrades the website tries to sell you.

From Dorie: "I haven't used it bit I did find a link to a news station ....."
I watched the news clip too and they didn't even actually USE the product on the dog so it wasn't in fact TESTED. Only guessed that it wouldn't actually do any thing.
It was also mentioned that the product doesn't have an "active enzyme" that is needed to "remove" plaque and tarter from the teeth. When, in actuallity, it was stated that the enzyme is needed to STOP it from forming in the first place, NOT to remove it.
Finally, the PetzLife oral care gel mentioned contains the same ingredients as plaque attack.
That was a really rather rediculous post....

There's a powder you can sprinkle in their food that it cheese-flavored and fights plaque. It works brilliantly for my dogs. They're small breeds and the toothbrush is very challenging for them, this works great. Proden Plaqueoff is the name. It has really improved their breath also.

Hi all.

I was interested in the product too and I emailed the customer service.The response I got was:

"Katin, the bottles are 2.2 ounces or over 450 sprays. A full listing of the ingredients can be found on the website- link to the ingredients in top right hand corner Finally, yes there is alcohol in the product."

Keytones are very poisonous to dogs and though it is grain alcohol, it is still harmful. I think I would rather use something from the vet.

You can try the product if you like but I do not recommend it. Veterinary offices carry lines of oral care products that mix with the dog's water and there is a dry dog food that I'm using that works really well called Perscription Diet T/D (meaning tartar and dental) where the oral care ingredients are deposited directly on the tooth when the dog sinks its canine incisors into the middle of the kibble.

Hope that helps!

We have used PetzLife salmon-flavored gel for our Wiener Dog for a long time, applying with a tooth brush. It definitely works (better breath and less tartar). He loves the stuff's flavor, too. My wife does one side while he is lying down and then she tells him to roll over for the other side and he does it immediately.

PetzLife sells spray, too, but we have not tried that. I may, as the brushing works, but it is time-consuming.

Now some people have claimed alcohol, present in most if not all sprays sold as pet breather fresheners, is bad for dogs. It's bad for people, too, but it is the dose that makes the poison in both cases. Our Wiener enjoys a few mL of beer and red wine when we are having some and it does him no harm.

Somebody said that keytones (mispelling of ketones) are bad for dogs, and they are, just like for people. However ethanol (grain alcohol) is NOT a ketone, it is an alcohol. Completely different thing.

I haven't used this product yet. Actually this forum came up when searching for it so I thought I'd check this out. I simply wanted to comment on the concern many people are having about the alcohol in this product.
I'm a veterinary technician and was just looking through the products I have at my house that I have gotten from the clinic. One, which is specifically for use before a dental cleaning, contains a small amount of Ethyl Alcohol. This is a product we use every single day, many times a day. I have never had a pet have an ill effect from this. The other product I have is called "Vetzlife", it was a promotional product but also contains grain alcohol. The only reason I am not using this product is it is salmon flavored and I found the smell more offensive then my dogs bad breath. So, once again, not commenting on the product specifically, but the fact that it contains alcohol should not be the only reason you wouldn't purchase it.

Our organization's core mission is to develop all natural products for dogs. Our staff was motivated by the opportunity to formulate products from the ground up, however when the VitaHound research staff began to study natural substances that where highly effective at breaking up plaque and creating a healthy bacterial flora in a dog's mouth the PetzLife formulation was unbeatable. Understanding our opinion may be considered highly biased now that we sell the product, our organization's policy is to change to products that test superior to stuff that may be currently available from us. Over the past year we have sold thousands of bottles to dog lovers in the United States and Canada with follow up emails requesting feedback. Beyond in house research we poll our customers via email to their experience with other products, including Plaque Attack. Although anecdotal the PetzLife formulation is the treatment strongly endorsed with regularity. Additionally we utilize info from posts on forums as is the case with this comment. I have been impressed by the dog owners, groomers, and veterinarians knowledge and attitudes towards caring for their beloved pet hounds. The antidotal information I acquire on quality dog forums has proved invaluable to understanding the modern dog owner. I look forward to the comments from the dogster community.

Just FYI, ketones are not bad for dogs or humans. Both dogs & humans are natural carnivores and should be eating mostly meat and animal fat, which, when broken down, produces ketones, which the body will then use (rather than glucose) for energy. The brain loves ketones.

Furthermore, if you stop feeding your dog crap and limit the diet to meat and bones only, preferably raw, he won't get plaque on his teeth, he won't succumb to dental disease, & the bones will remove any tartar. Plaque is accumulations of bacteria, & they require glucose to adhere to teeth, to grow, & cause disease. Stop feeding your dogs grains & starchy vegetables, which break down into glucose, & he won't have dental disease.

I am a dentist, so I speak from experience. I saw my cats suffer and lose their teeth and had I only known back when they were alive I would have followed this regimen. I eat almost no carbs myself & have no plaque on my teeth & no mouth odor. And ketones aren't hurting me.

Hello everyone,
Aside from regular teeth and gum CHECK with a vet, our best friends need regular teeth and gum CARE from us too.

As we always hear it: Prevention is Better than Cure! Four out of 5 dogs will likely encounter one or several forms of periodontal diseases in their lifetime. Periodontal diseases can lead to more severe infections affecting the the heart, kidney, and liver.

Oral care products are simply there to help us out, eliminating the hassles while saving too...and we don't need to settle with plaque attack if we are in doubt. There are good alternatives/options and have been found to be equally effective.

I hope this article entitled "Plaque Attack Reviews| Our Vet Gives His Options" could be of help to anyone.

I'm currently raising 3 energetic and healthy labs. Our family is being careful about money and a friend of ours recently had to spend almost $900.00 for her dog's veterinarian dental surgery. Her experience prompted me to purchase Plaque Attack in the hopes of preventing any expensive vet visits. Unbeknownst to me she had purchased another product from called Petzlife hoping to clean her other dog's teeth before he developed periodontal disease too. We had both been using the products for about 3 months when we finally realized we were both attempting the same prevention for our family pets with different products. Nevertheless the comparison floored me, her dog's teeth and gums looked white and plaque free, while mine showed some improvement but still was suffering from bad breath and obvious plaque on her back teeth at the gum line. I reviewed Plaque Attack's ingredients on the VitaHound site and the Plaque Attack is lacking some key stuff.

Hello Artie & to everyone!

How are you? It seemed that your posting here really rocked pet owners and "attacked" plaque attack! Well, indeed, who gonna waste those bucks if it simply doesn't work!

But you know what? With due respect to your question,to me, I think the question is not about whether or not plaque attack works but how do we make use of it to make it work just as described or advertised.

Of course, we probably know a lot of oral care products flooding the online market and I believe that most if not all of them work.

It's about how we follow the instructions, getting into the real deal of their ingredients and the tips involved.

I have for all 3 of my dogs. It works great. Their teeth had a lot of plaque being such a small breed. I just took one of them to the vets and she said her teeth were excellent. The last time they were there they were talking about surgery to get them cleaned. $19.95 plus shipping is a lot cheaper than $450 and putting them under to get the teeth cleaned. After a few weeks their teeth are white and clean. I thinkt he product works great and is worth the money. I just put it on my finger and rub it on their teeth before they go to bed at night.

My dog Daisy visited the vet last Tuesday, the news on her teeth was what I expected. The years of not cleaning her teeth had taken a toll with plaque buildup. I trust my vet and will follow his advice to have Daisys teeth professionally cleaned. Nevertheless, I am going to attempt what everyone else on this forum is trying to do and prevent this from happening again or causing further damage to Daisys teeth.
I have researched both Plaque Attach and Petslife products and they both contain grain alcohol as their first ingredient. For what it is worth, to add my two cents, I was unable to contact anyone at Plaque Attach to explain to me the use of this ingredient. However I followed the advice of another reader and emailed for some information pertaining to the grain alcohol. Their staff responded with a knowledgeable and helful email. I am curious if other readers have any information or opinion of what the grain alcohol's function is.

I attempted to order Plaque Attack online today, I have purchased my fair share of items from various web sites and this one takes the cake. Not sure how you purchase the product for 19.95 I was never able to get my shopping cart to total below $29.00. I have found 3 main products available for dog oral care; Plaque Attack, Petzlife, and Tropiclean. I discovered Plaque Attack on TV and their web presence is basically affiliate sites all sending the customer to the same site, unfortunately I could find no research. Tropiclean has several products for dog hygiene care, however the ingredients are basically the same light weight substances used in a ton of other pet mouth washes and very little research info. Petzlife appears to have the most advanced knowledge and research on canine oral care. You can buy Petzlife anywhere, but and provide the most research on how these types of products work, I will report my experience when decide what to order.

My brother used Plaque Attack a few months ago after seeing a 2 for one offer on TV, we compared costs and VitaHound's discounted pricing is actually a better deal and I believe I'm far more impressed with the results than my brother was.

I just ordered so I haven't gotten it yet, but there are other products out there with the same ingredients, and from what I can tell they all seem to get good results.

Looks like a lot of people have had a problem with the online ordering. I went straight to the customer service link and called the number instead of ordering online. I got a live person quickly, and they DID NOT obnoxiously try and upsell me on the phone.

Also, I asked about the two for one deal:
It's a 2.2 oz bottle. The charge for 2.2 oz is the same as what they used to charge for their (now discontinued) 1 oz bottle. Probably because that's what similar products sell for.

I picked plaque attack over others out there because of the $100 rebate program they have. Seems like a no brainer... we'll see.

Amazing forum, I'm not an expert on canine oral care but I can add this to the discussion on Plaque Attack's effectiveness. Our circle of friends and family take pride in the level of care we give our dogs, I guess all our pets for that matter. Everyone uses Petzlife with great success, and sells refills that I split with our neighbors and it reduces the cost tremendously. When our daughter adopted their first dog I told my son in law to google VitaHound. When he searched for he ended up on Plaque Attack's site and ordered, not knowing the difference. Over the course of a few months he did not get the results we told him to expect, only after he brought over his bottle for me to refill did I notice it was Plaque Attack and not Petzlife. After the refill of Petzlife he started to see results.

Yes we used plaque attack on both my toy poodles, they are 13 years old and on one it almost cleared all of the plaque and on the littler poodle there is still a little bit, but her teeth are pretty bad...but the stuff DOES work!!!

I came on line to inquire also on Plaque Attack. Well, after reading Dorie's answer on this blog I have decided to try Plaque Attack. The main reason is that Dorie answered this question stating that Plaque Attack does not work because she saw a clip on stating that this product is not regulated. LOL that is the most ridiculous thing I've heard. The clip does not prove that Plaque Attack does not work. The people in this clip proved nothing and only stated that Plaque Attack is not regulated and it is homeopathic (natural) so it cannot work.... Does that make any sense?? They did not test the product on the dog! Just because of this it makes me think maybe this product works and I'm going to buy some tonight on line.. Of course a Vet is going to say it does not work. he wants your money. Tell them to show some data and facts rather than a vet state it wont work because its a natural product. Good grief.

The dog grooming community has been seeking a real treatment for cleaning a dog's teeth without the need for the resources of a Veterinarian facility. The Petzlife products from have provided great results and usually work as well or better than professional ultrasonic scaling, I'm intrigued by the testimonials for Plaque Attack, I know VitaHound does not sell Plaque Attack, but I believe trying new products is important for our industry to discover natural and effective remedies for our clients dog's and cat's. Our office ordered today keep your fingers crossed.

I'm a field rep for a major vet supply company in California, a majority of the practices in my territory rely on 300 to 600 dollar dental cleanings from their regular customers, a majority of these vet offices carried the VitaHound Daily Supplement and recommended it to their cliental. Nevertheless the pharmaceuticals I supply for various dental treatments has been steadily declining over the past 2 years and the vet's office managers are pulling the VitaHound products claiming that VitaHound and Plaque Attack are selling at home dental treatment sprays that are significantly cutting into their business. I have heard the larger pharma companies including mine are developing competing products that veterinarian offices can market to their customers, hopefully the veterinarians haven't shot themselves in the foot by promoting VitaHound the past few years, I know I warned them but they always believed I was just trying to sell them are supplements. Hate to say it but I told them so.

I had a similar experience as the above reader with the ordering process of Plaque Attack. The problem is the limited options on where to order. Nevertheless the spray works, and I have since used to order the Petzlife oral care products. VitaHound sells an oral gel that I use in place of a toothpaste. The combination of the products anti-bacterial properties combined with brushing is a powerful way to clean your dog's teeth.

Completely ignore the person who works for plaque attack on this forum. I ordered it and it is a gigantic scam!!!!!!!!!!!! The call you afterward to "confirm" the order and try to trick you into purchasing a bunch of stuff that you don't want like gasoline discounts, etc. I know it sounds crazy because it is unrelated to dogs but it is true.

Oh yeah and they sell your email to a TON of different people and you a ridiculous amount of spam after you order the product.

We have three dogs. A Jack Russell (8), a Maltese (6), and a Maltepoo (5). All have had problems with tartar and bad breath. We have taken the to the Vet, repeatedly. We love our dogs, they are like our second generation children. Our poor maltese has lost most of his teeth due to problems with tartar and resulting gum problems. Frustrated with Vet bills and tooth loss, we decided to try Plaque Attack. Yes it was expensive and maybe they are a little deceptive on the website, but the product really works. I am amazed at the difference in all three with just a few applications. Their teeth are cleaner. Their breath is so much better. Yes the product is expensive but worth every penny. I recomend it to anyone having plaque buildup issues.

True connoisseurs of dog grooming love Plaque Attack, Petzlife, and the other all natural products that truly assist in a dog’s care, nevertheless as a recovering breeder I need to know the science behind the treatment. Our dogs suffer enough exposure to harsh chemicals in their hygiene care products and road kill blended into their dog food. I recommend continually visiting well-known sites that research and develop canine care products, VitaHound and Dinovite are tops on my list. Use VitaHound for oral care and Dinovite for supplements. Secondly forums such as Dogster that have high participation from dog lovers is invaluable for reading the experience and opinions of what counts, real life experience. So my experience says Plaque Attack products are all natural and really work to clean your dog's teeth and gums.

For sure, dog dental sprays/gels work! Sadly, the "grain alcohol (also called Ethanol, Ethyl Alcohol, or Drinking Alcohol)" debate is not over yet. Truly, "dogs are far more sensitive to ethanol than humans are- ASPCA ( Alcohol intoxication can lead to distended abdomens, lack of coordination, disorientation, stupor and vomiting, and in severe cases, coma, seizures and death- ASPCA.

Yes, I have used it now for about 2 months. I had always used milk bones and kept my dogs teeth great, but not all my dogs liked milk bones. My baby right now refuses to eat them. Her breath was horrible too. Plaque Attack was an answer that I prayed for. Her breath is wonderful now and to date, her teeth are too. I don't know what happened to everyone on the web site, but I didn't have any problems at all. Maybe you need to read it? Anyway, I recommend it. If it proves to be not as good at keeping her teeth clean, I'll let you know.

I have used both Plaque Attack and the Petzlife oral gel. I'm responsible for over 50 dogs at our church's rescue program and both products have eliminated the need to use a veterinarian for cleaning the dog's teeth. The drawback to Plaque Attack is the lack of places to purchase, and for people needing larger quantities there are no larger bottles. Petzlife is carried by several pet retail stores, and if price is an issue you can always buy at a deep discount from the site.

Just a note here. I googled this product and saw dozens of reviews where there was a link to purchase the product. I think this a reflection of their overall contempt for consumer intelligence (or lack thereof). Do you want to take the word of someone selling the product while claiming to be unbiased. These are not the actions of a reputable company. Wouldn't it be nice if you could spray something in your mouth and not have to brush your teeth ever again. Sounds fishy to me. Buyer beware!

YES!! My mom just started using Plaque Blast on me a week ago. I'm used to getting pilled every morning for my thyroid, so putting something in the corners of my mouth didn't phase me a bit. (note to owners with pets that don't like it).
I'm an older dog and have had my share of teeth removed, and dental problems. The latest issues have been red gums and tarter, yellowing, and really rancid breath (mom didn't like my kisses anymore). The very first day of use, my bad breath was gone! Now after just a week of use, 2x day, my mom says my gums are not as red anymore. There is NO ALCOHOL of any kind in the ingredients, and believe me, with my bad mouth if there was anything irritating in it, I would have noticed the second she sprayed it in there! My mom and I are pretty much inseperable (except for occational errands to places I can't go) and she would notice if I had any bad reactions to it....none! She even bought it at a local Pet Smart store! (no online nonsense) I love my mom!

I am a clinician and formulary herbalist and clinical aromatherapist who founded a company that manufacturers among other products, a line of Equine and Pet herbal products.

My company was the first company in the industry to introduce the Aromaceutical™ concept into liquid herbal products, e.g. adding a small ingredient amount of Essential Oils (EO's) blends into the finished liquid herbal products.

We don't add Aromaceuticals™ to our Equine and Pets products. Why? Because studies in Europe have clearly shown that EO's are toxic (and even poisonous) to small pets, but ESPECIALLY CATS! This is not hubris or something drawn out of thin air but a proven scientific fact!!!

According to company statements, Dr. George is a dentist for humans, not veterinarian science. Plaque Attack is toxic for small pets, especially cats! The lack of science regarding this product and hubris to sell it is very disconcerting to us in the industry who put pets health and lives before easy dollars.

If i was a shady company you better belive i would submit countless bogus A+ reviews everywhere. Spraying a chemical in your dogs mouth without adequate research is irrresponsible. I'm sure its just a harmless waste of money. But If it only took a couple squirts to remedy a dogs teeth/breath actually worked they wouldnt try to sell them like ginsu knives. I dont mean to sound harsh but i prefer companies that rip people off without putting beloved pets health at risk.

I dont know about plaque attack but I have been using "plaque off" for a while and it works great. Its a special seaweed powder from Scandinavia...super safe. I put just a little on my dogs food once a day. I started noticing the plaque dissipating after about 3 weeks. It works on enzymes in the saliva or something like that. And check it out... humans can use it too! I got this product from a high end pet food store in my town Kailua...but I am sure it can be found online. The owner told me that the product was on the "Oprah Show" which of course made me say... hmmm... ya, think Ill try it. :) One little bottle cost like 26 bucks but it lasts a very long time as you only use just a little bit. Good Luck!

Plaque Atack is a great product.It works as claimed,and most importantly with this type of product, It does NOT contain grain alcohol... however that being said...Beware of ordering on their website, because you will get scammed...The low price,the free shipping, the blah blah blah is a scam,just a bunch of smoke and mirrors.My order that should have cost me $10 plus $6.99 shipping, was actually 49$ on my credit card. Yikes.. I called the company during office hours and I chewed out the hapless operator who bravely tried, for a whole 3 seconds, to justify this bit of marketing nonsence. In the end, my payment was changed ,I was charged the correct,advertised amount,plus a 10$ fine print fee..In the end my payment was more then advertised but less then they tried to scam me for. Buyer beware!!
This great product is marketed by pirates and sad a society we now live within

I just ordered some and was very vigilent about unchecking what I didn't want and they order comes up with an extra product and double the shipping and handling. Now I have to hassle to get that off and the shipping and handling reduced to what is clearly displayed on their website.

There have been a lot of positive and negative reviews, but I think I've read many more positives. Most of the negatives seem to disqualify it without trying the product or are negative because of the person's experience with ordering the product online. I've ordered from an "as seen on tv" website once, and I'm not a fan. Most "As Seen On TV" products make money from selling buyers' contact information as well as from charging separate shipping & handling for add ons. It's what they do.

However, Amazon as both Plaque Attack and PetzLife listed for half the price. So for anyone interested in trying the product but not looking to get lost in all the add-ons and ads from the seller's website, try

I have 2 beagles. I've used dental treats for years, and while I never used them regularly enough to notice a change in breath I never had much problem with plaque build up until recently. Coot no longer takes those treats. I will be trying PetzLife. Will let you know how it goes.

I ended up buying Plaque Attack from because they had the best price and free shipping when I combined it with another product. Took three days to arrive and started using it about an hour ago. I squirted a couple shots in my mouth first to see what it tasted like. Then I squirted three short shots into my 11 year old Italian Greyhounds(Buster)mouth and I was surprised that he did not object. After reading several bad reviews about the ingredients in this product I was/am a little reluctant to use it. Some of the complaints I have experience with, grape seed extract or most fruit seeds are very good for most mammals and I have been feeding ground up apricot kernels to my dogs for years in small amounts. Grape seeds have the same "killer" cyanide, but in a much smaller dose. The "Cyanide" in fruit seeds will only react when it is mixed with the enzymes found in cancer cells and because of that is a cure as well as a prevention for cancer. Update in 14 days.

We bought two bottles of the stuff and gave our miniature poodle the recommended dosage of 3 sprays before bed Friday night.

I bought Plaque Attack two years ago after my Schnoodle had a teeth cleaning and some extracted, and have been using it daily since. I give him one spray every day. At first he fought me on it, but now he seems to like it, and even seems to miss it when I occasionally forget.

His breath has stayed good for the two years. It starts getting a bit ripe if I forget the Plaque Attack for a day or two. :)

Yesterday he had a teeth cleaning at the vet, his first since starting Plaque Attack. They were astounded at how good his teeth are. They used the word "thrilled" :-) They had to do some scaling, but the teeth underneath are extremely sound, not rotted at all. Not only the vet tech but also the vet came out to tell me how surprised they were at how good his teeth are. They agreed, it had to be the Plaque Attack that made the difference.

I'm guessing Plaque Attack saved me about $500 in vet bills. I'm absolutely convinced that, used properly, it is a good, effective product.
