I’m curious about the answers to this, so please post on the list. I’ve read
that not enough saliva can create more plaque. Since plaque is collections of
bacteria, maybe something else is going on. Humans are told to brush their
tongue to reduce plaque and to rinse with anti-bacterial wash. Maybe there is
something to brush on her teeth a couple times a day that would work.

Yesterday I had Izzy at the vet's for some dental work. She has had a
cleaning 5 times in the last 6 years. In between times, I have scaled her
teeth and brushed her teeth. Nothing keeps them clean. I fed her "raw" for
a year & a half--no difference. She (and the rest of the pack) have raw
chicken backs and raw bones--no difference. No one else has teeth like hers.
Plaque, plaque and more plaque--her teeth are gorgeous now, but it will not
last. She has had 4 teeth removed through the years, 2 yesterday. I have
decided that she's just got (genetically) bad toofers. I am going to give
her colloidal silver and other immune boosters--don't know what else to do.
Izzy has always been healthy in every other way and like I said before, none
of my other dogs has this problem. After my long-winded explanation, can
anyone tell me anything else I can do naturally to help her? Since she's
almost 9, I don't want her to be put under anesthesia repeatedly for tooth
cleaning. H E L P.
Da List is da best.
