Cleaning an Older Dog's Teeth at Home?

We have never brushed our pooch's teeth before, nor have we had the vet do a tarter removal or cleaning on her. She is now 12 1/2 years old and in good health, but I noticed that some of her teeth have the orange-yellow build up starting on them. Also, bad breath is now showing up. She doesn't chew on her hard bones as much as she use too. We don't have the $350 for a teeth cleaning. Any suggestions?

Get the plaque removal spray that you spray into the mouth.

Bad breath can indicate an infected tooth; don't let your dog suffer from the pain; have the teeth checked by a vet.

Try cleaning your pet's mouth/ teeth: Do NOT use regular human toothpaste for your dog. Most human toothpastes include fluoride, which is extremely poisonous to dogs. You can find toothpaste formulated for dogs at most good pet stores.

Apple Slices. Help to clean residue off a dogs teeth, which helps to freshen her breath. Apples are a good source of fiber as well as vitamin A and C. Make sure to take out the seeds and the core before feeding to your dog, as these can be choking hazards.

try plaque off, it seriously worked on my two need to use it every day for around 8 weeks before the plaque softens then give your dog something like a deer antler chew or something good to chew on and the plaque comes off........I give mine it every day and the plaque doesn't build up again.
