If you are keen to make sure that your dog is being fed enough calcium in his diet, but your dog is Lactose Intolerant or you simply do not want to feed him to much dairy, there are other ways to provide him with calcium. Spinach is an excellent source of calcium, and one cup of cooked spinach has a comparable calcium content to 1 cup of reduced fat milk. A cup of spinach can be easily mixed into a bowl of dog food and most dogs will not have any objection to eating it. There are also many calcium supplements available for dogs - ask your vet for specific recommendations for your dog.
The oral flushes can be additives for your pets drinking water or they can be spritzed directly on the gums and teeth. Less effective, but still effective, are edible chews or chew toys. Anything your pet chews will help but many products at the pet store or your veterinarians office will contain enzymes to help kill bacteria in the mouth. There are even special diets formulated that help your pet with special \"fiber matrixes\" and enzymes to shear and rub the teeth and kill the bacteria in the mouth. One other product that needs to be mentioned is a product called Oravet. Oravet is a waxy substance that you smear onto the teeth once weekly. This product helps the bacteria and saliva (plaque) to slide off the teeth, the means less build up of plaque which means less tarter. Using this product alone can decrease plaque and tarter build up by 40-60% in a year.
