Biotene Veterinarian Maintenance Oral Gel helps to soothe and protect your pet’s oral tissue against irritation and inflammation caused by infection, and it also effectively removes plaque and harmful odor-causing bacteria. It is the original brushless toothpaste for pets. This oral gel has been shown to be highly effective and also safe and easy-to-apply for daily use in the maintenance of your pet's oral hygiene.
Biotene Veterinarian Maintenance Oral Gel contains Lactoperoxidase, an enzyme that functions as a natural antibacterial agent and is often used for treatment of paradentosis and gingivitis.The gel also contains Lysozyme, which is a naturally-occurring enzyme, found in egg whites, that acts as a mild antiseptic by destroying the cell walls of some bacteria. It is used as both a mouth rinse and a toothpaste to help reduce oral bacteria, by fighting against the acid produced by that bacteria. Lactoferrinan is included as an iron-binding protein that works against antimicrobial activity by withholding iron from fungi and bacteria that collect in the mouth. Biotene Oral Gel also contains Glucose Oxidase, which oxidizes glucose to gluconic acid and results in the formation of hydrogen peroxide. It is used to remove traces of glucose, or sugar, from food.
This product works effectively with no antibiotics, alcohol, or chlorhexidine, which is often used in oral rinses but can cause an increase in teeth stains.

Its always great when your dog likes the treatmernt
I have never been a big fan of vet teeth cleaning due your dog receiving anesthetic? now that my dog is a senior I am grateful for this product. My dogs teeth are cleaner and whiter than ever and she loves the taste. I squirt 1/2 inch on my palm am and pm everyday. I wish I would have found years ago.
Effective and economical
Liking the people products, the idea of trying the Biotene veterinary line seemed like a logical leap for a family that trusts the enzyme concept with formerly excellent results (using an alternate prduct).
Because so little is used for each application, the effectiveness equals the economic value.
Also, other products have flavorings that may interfere with dogs or cats with allergies. This is an added plus, since we have those special needs, and the product works like a charm for us on our dog's teeth. They are crystal white and her breath is more fresh than a daisy. This site offers an exceptionally good price too. Thank you!
We have always been fortunate in the dental division where our dogs are concerned. Nine plus years with one and so far close to five more with another, never once with one teeth cleaning visit, let alone one dental problem. Are we just lucky, or is it the brushing?
Perhaps a combination of the brushing, their good diet and maybe a little bit that they are prolific chewers?
Regardless, we are thankful for the use of a product like the Biotene Maintenance Enzymatic system, because just ONE dental visit is enough expense to put you in the doghouse! Not to mention that the "knock-out" drops that general anesthesia requires should only be used in extreme cases, NOT as a routine measure (it's just plain NOT good for them), and for some animals that undergo cleanings to the tune of 1-2 x a year, good golly, who can afford that? Much better to get them used to brushing.. And for those that try & have given up, the good news IS that with the enzymes, even just wiping it on will give you excellent results. No more wrestling matches, if need be, and God forbid, if your pet is a cat!
Honestly, the tubes last a LONG time, for the little amount required to get the job done. This is a highly regarded product in this household. Try it and see why it works so well. Thanks for listening!
My cat's teeth are cleaner and his breath had been improved. I use this product on my cat's teeth and gums a least twice a day, especially after a meal.
It's all in the family
Awhile back my dentist recommended Biotene products for me, and it was such a PLUS that when we saw their VET line, we switched immediately! Our Belgians have Never required a single cleaning, 1 in over 9 yrs, nor the baby who will be 5 in May! You need so little of the product to do the job that the value alone is worth trying it.. The customer service here is top notch and the shipping is lightning fast! Thanks for making our shopping easy peasy by carrying both the people & pet products together too! In this case, we both use Biotene!
