We tried this in our water for a couple days... unfortunately none of my 3 cats would touch it. PetSmart was cool about letting me return it. I really wanted it to work, and am sorry it didn't

My cat has a breath problem and it only got worse because he is sick. With this product, as it is easy to use, worked miracles. His breath isn't as bad any more. I now don't mind if he meows in my face. The product itself smells like a bubblegum cotton candy. My cat seems happier.
Pros: taste, freshens breath, cleans teeth

My yorkie had the worst breath. Had her checked at the vet. and she had NO dental issues. We got this product and saw results within the first 24 hrs. We have used it ever since with fantastic results.
Pros: freshens breath

Easy way to help freshen your pets' breath

We have two dogs and a cat (we also have a rabbit, but do not use this product in his water) that have stinky breath all the time. Since we've purchased this water additive, we have noticed a definite improvement in their breath. Both the dogs and the cat have drank their water as if nothing has changed and haven't seemed to notice anything being out of the ordinary. One of our dogs and our cat are VERY picky about flavors (they won't even take certain treats), so we were very surprised when they didn't seem to notice or mind this being added to their water. We are so grateful to not have to smell their bad breath anymore. Don't get me wrong, they still have a little bit of a stink (to be expected with animals), but it is MUCH improved with this product. Before trying this, we tried a dental spray and the animals HATED it. They were terrified of the bottle after the first use and would do anything in their power to keep their mouths shut and run away when we would try to use it on them, so it was not effective at all. This is a much easier way to get results.
Pros: taste, freshens breath

My dog wouldn't drink the water...

My silky Louie is pretty finicky about what he eats, I'll be the first to admit. But he hated the taste of this so much, he wouldn't drink his water for days. He got so lethargic and dehydrated from only taking a few slurps, and he would drink the dirty sewer water or pooling water from sprinklers or the bath tub water before he would drink the water in his bowl. He would be drinking the treated water in his bowl and would make this weird wheezing sound, like he was being tortured into drinking water! I finally broke down and gave him some pure bottled water and he just slurped it up like it was a dog's version of chocolate!
This product definitely has a minty scent, and I'm tired of dog dental products having such a human-oriented scent! Dogs are not people, there is no reason for them to have minty-fresh breath and they don't want minty fresh breath nor does my particular dog like the products that try to accomplish minty fresh breath because of the taste.
I get it, we all want our dog's breath to not smell acrid and awful, but it doesn't have to be accomplished this way. He eats his dental treats every day, because they taste like something a dog would actually want to consume.
I couldn't tell a difference with tartar and improved breath because he WOULDN'T DRINK IT. SUCH a waste of money and time and such a horrible experience.
I was trying so hard to get dental health into his diet and wanted him to drink the treated water so bad, but I'd rather brush his teeth twice a day like I do mine than put him through the experience of this product. Do whatever you can to keep your dog's teeth healthy, but don't do this to your dog. I feel like I've been abusing him. Seriously.

Did not help my cat's breath

I have been using this product as recommended in my cats' water for 3 weeks and their horrible breath has not improved. It has, in fact, gotten worse. I'm sure this product works in some cases, but in mine, it did not.
Cons: didn't work
