Heather is correct, once there is already plaque on the teeth, brushing won't get it off, only a professional cleaning will... just like with people. Then you need to use an enzymatic tooth paste to keep it at bay after that. Even then, some dogs just grow plaque faster than others. Jodi is 7, and I've asked the vet about cleaning his teeth, she says every time that his teeth look great, and she wouldn't do it yet. OTOH, Pixel is 18 months, and is starting to develop some already.
