Opinion ? Experience? HealthyMouth

Hi y'all,

Does anyone have information/opinions/experience with a product called HealthyMouth which is mixed with water for dogs and cats and professes to inhibit tartar and plaque?

Thanks!

Hi Shirley, I'm a dental hygienist for people. I looked over their website. One ingredient is papain which I believe is used as a meat tenderizer. One would assume that"s safe to ingest(?) if it's OK to use on meat. The other ingredients look healthy. However, I just can't imagine how it actually will inhibit or clean off plaque. The plain old toothbrush is the proven winner at that task.

Thanks, Rita--I am suspicious. I will look up this ingredient, but am inclined to not using the product when so little 'real science' is presented.
