Recently I took my greyhound to the vets for his annual booster. After the vet examined him he told me that said his teeth needed cleaning and that this would cost in the region of £300-£500, depending on how many extractions were needed. They sold me some Plaque Off and told me to bring him back in another month to check his teeth again, but the vet told me that he suspected that his teeth were too bad for the Plaque Off to work.
Feeling slightly uneasy about all this, I messaged Tia to see if they had any advice about teeth. Tia replied and told me to give him a raw knuckle bone from the butchers. Also, I sent Tia pictures of his teeth and Tia said that his teeth didn’t look too bad at all! Anyway, I bought him a knuckle bone and he happily chomped away on it all afternoon. When I looked at his teeth the following morning, I couldn’t believe it – most of the solid coating of plaque that had covered some of his back teeth had vanished! Buying a £1 bone had saved me hundreds of pounds! Not to mention all the stress and discomfort my poor dog would have suffered had he gone through with the vet’s cleaning operation.
Thank you, Tia, for your great advice.
