There may be different, and better things but I know for a FACT that this works, and it works REALLY well.

Problem is, it takes months to fully dissolve dental tartar  / calculus.

Here’s how I know.

I had a client with a very old dog and neither of us were inclined to do a dental scaling / extractions in that age range.

The owner, because of “risk of anesthesia” which for me, wasn’t a thought at all.

For me the hesitation was “Is this dog going to live long enough for this to matter?” and “How much expense is justifiable when a dog is THIS old?” (15+)

Anyway… So the dog comes in for an annual-shots seven months after we had that conversation and I’m looking at the teeth and I’m like “Uhhhh what happened? These teeth look freshly cleaned!” and she goes: “I’m just using this stuff I got online!”

“Uhhhh what happened? These teeth look freshly cleaned!”

I’m like “Tell me what voodoo is this which you wield!!!”

And it was LEBA III

It’s a liquid of some magical nature that comes with a dropper. It’s actually *in* a spray bottle so you can spray the teeth but for dogs which think that suuuuuuucks, you can use the dropper and just deposit the LEBA III in the cheeks.

It’s in a blue bottle with kind of a low-tech seventies handmade looking label. It works.

It’s available here. I’m linking it from this article so my clients can find it easy.

PS 100623: Leba III doesn’t seem to help with coffee stains. I’m going to use Leba III on my own teeth for a month to “find out what we’re putting the dogs through” and also, make sure that protracted use isn’t actually making their gums tingle or hurt or some shenanigans they can’t express.
