I was wondering if anyone has used this for their cat(s). You put it in their drinking water and it cleans their teeth. I was talking to my vet about how several of my cats have a lot of plaque at young ages. She said it is probably because they were all strays and didn't get proper pre and post natal nutrition. She recommended Oxyfresh and said it could help keep their teeth clean. One of my cats has gingivitis and she said it could help him too. Has anyone used it?

My vet said Oxyfresh was a good idea. I have yet to find it, though.

The way I understand it is that you put a capful or so in their water and it keeps the plaque and tarter from developing on their teeth. I guess it would have the same effect as brushing their teeth. I don't know if anyone's cat would actually let them brush their teeth but mine certainly wont. I will probably get it in a few days, they are mailing it, and I'm guessing it takes a little while to work. We will see. I hope it helps my cat with gingivitis. I am having a hard time putting the rinse I have for him on his teeth at night. He hates it.

I just got it in the mail yesterday. I put some in their water last night. I checked several cats teeth so I can compare the progress. By the way, the cats were not really pleased by this, they hate having their teeth checked. I will check them again in a few days then a week to see if it is doing anything.

Well, the oxyfresh seems to be helping. I wrote about it in the cat with gingivitis post too. I ran out of it for a week and that is really when I noticed the difference. Their teeth got bad for a week, then looked better once I started oxyfresh again. At first I bought the small bottle b/c I wasn't sure they would drink it, but no one minded. It is completely odorless to me anyway. I thought it was a little expensive, but I was suprised how long it lasted considering my herd. Considering how long it lasted, it wasn't that bad.

Basically it mostly prevents build up of plaque and tarter. To some extent it removes what is already there. I am going to keep using it to keep my cat's teeth healthy. I would recommend it especially if your cats were abandoned or strays. My vet told me that they are more likely to have teeth problems b/c of the poor pre and post natal nutrition.

the website is www.oxyfresh.com in case anyone wants to try it.

It also works for dogs too. I just put it in everyone's water.

I was looking at that in petco not too long ago. But didn't want to buy it without knowing for sure that it was safe.

Does it do anything for your cats' breath. i've noticed that my cat's slobber smells very strongly like his food. It grosses me out becuase his toys all smell like it when he finishes playing with them, and he sometimes chews on my hair and then I feel like I stink for the rest of the day.

I tried oxyfresh in their water and my picky spoiled cats refused to drink their water. So I had to use the oxyfresh in the spray form. I have noticed a great improvement. I like it, better than trying to brush their teeth. I was going to get one of my cats a dental cleaning until I tried it but after about 4 or 5 weeks I noticed a big improvement

It should help with his breath. Some of my cats are very picky, and they don't mind it. The sniff police had to check it out the first time I put it in even though it supposedly doesn't smell. They never had a problem drinking it. It's in all the water now though so they don't have a choice, but no one has seemed to mind.

There is no way I would be able to brush the cat's teeth. Most cats are way to uncooperative for that. It's an easy way to keep their teeth healthy.

Well my cats have gotten to the point that it must be fresh running water straight from the faucet. Anything out of the bowl is just not good enough for the little monstors. However if its in a glass with ice then its heaven lol.

I had one cat who would only drink out of the toilet unless she saw you fill the water dish and you put an ice cube in it. They can be finicky little things.
